808 STATE SOUND-A-LIKES

This is not trolling although it's kind of funny. Artist that sound like 808 State. The lost members that should've joined. This guy from Indonesia sounds so much like 808 State Live.

Young'ns Into 808 State

808 State - EX:EL (Album Review) http://youtu.be/0qrfc3cjV_Q The Wonky Angle Published on Jan 6, 2018 Good to see young people discovering 808 State. edit - I didn't hear his other 808 State album reviews but spot on I'd say in evaluating the tracks. Pretty much how people in the very early 90s saw ...

Re: Gareth Whitehead - The Brood Remixed (featuring remix by 808 State) - out 3 July 2017

I'm actually looking for decent dance music for laptop DJ sets, there's a lot of poor taste EDM and dance music out there. 808 State did a decent job, so did Juan Atkins.

Re: Shadow Of The State -Kick Starter

Flexi Disc have a cool lo-fi sound to them but wear out pretty fast. Number stations remind of physical trace UFOlogist Ted Phillips talking about electronic signals from supposed aliens placed around the earth pulsing every two seconds. Maybe some type of beacon. 1:13:00 mark TED PHILLIPS - The Phy...

Re: 808 State live at Moogfest Durham NC, USA 18-21 May 2017

A good idea for the US is maybe a Madchester tour comprising of different people from that era from different groups, the mondays, inspirals, 808 state, Gerald whatever. It doesn't have to be the lead singer or an entire group but like the drummer from one group or lead guitarist, a manchester DJ se...

Re: Graham Massey on NPR

Hey Graham, thanks for posting those links. It looks like the NPR segment nicked a part from the BBC radio 4 interview. I recognized the "kick drum, vibrate bodies" part. The woman with the British accent sounded similar as well. Edit- It may have been BBC Word Service that airs in the US instead of...

Graham Massey on NPR

I just heard Graham Massey on NPR radio in America about the passing of the Japanese inventor of the 808. It sounded like maybe a snippet pulled form an 808 doc or something. A woman in a European accent said the 808 became popular again in the 1990s with artist using "beat breaks" inspired by Kool ...

Re: Gorgeous Vinyl Reissue???

At the time it was considered their worst album. The tracks were too short and cheesey sampling. I've always been into camp or kistch electronic music and enjoyed it.

Electronic Harassment Audio

I captured audio of the electronic harassment equipment. You need bass speakers in order to hear the low modulation. These are audio reconnaissance field recordings. This forum does not get a lot of traffic but since I started a thread about it posting some audio seemed appropriate. https://soundclo...
