Re: Album listening party in Manchester 12 October 2019!

Review After a 4 track ‘transmission suite’ live onslaught in a corner section of Piccadilly Records, along with album signings, it was then on to a Q&A session further down the road. A trendy 3 tiered bar, with 808 occupying the middle tier floor. The facilities centrepiece soundsystem was apparen...

Re: Fifteen Questions Interview with 808 State (Graham Massey)

Great interview. Particularly liked the making of 'Ujala' insight, and the fact the vocal sample 'Fantastic' was taken from Andy's voicemail :)

Andy : "The albums coming out next year"

Caller : "Oh, fantastic"

No pre-booked family long weekend holiday excursion to Wales is going to stop me from attending this 'once in a 30 year event'. See you there!!

Re: New 808 State album "Transmission Suite" out 11 Oct 2019

Typical that my two favourite tracks from the EPs don't appear on the album, Spiral Arms and Bataglia.

If the EPs are to go by, it's going to be an epic listen. The sounds are swirling around my head 24/7 with their addictive beats.

Re: New 808 State EP "Initial Granada Report" out 12 July 2019

Bataglia seems to be the strongest of the tracks and was the one that certainly got the crowd going at Bluedot. As it's catalogue number BOBSTATE, a nice touch would be an 808GREAVES mix of one of the tracks further down the line, a tribute to the legend that was BOB Greaves that presented Granada R...

Decided to get a weekend ticket as Saturday day tickets were sold out. Planning to 'live' in my van for a few days :wink:

Re: Record Store Day 2019: 808 State - 4LP box

SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVE THE ALBUM AND HAVEN'T PLAYED IT YET THEN BEST NOT TO READ THIS MESSAGE : Queued for 2 hours not expecting to get a sniff, but as I got nearer to the door I looked through the window and could see the 808 cover staring straight at me. Luckily I was the first to get one of t...

Re: Record Store Day 2019: 808 State - 4LP box

The store closest to me (8 miles away) has 2 copies in, so I think most stores probably only get 2 or 3 of whatever they decide to stock. I presume Manchester would get more of the 808 release, but then you're 'fighting' with more people to get it. I'll probably try and get it, not for it's content ...

Re: Record Store Day 2019: 808 State - 4LP box

Sounds like fun. Wouldn't surprise me if ancodiacobrabora is just ancodia or both tracks as they appeared on 90 but as one, rather than a new mix. ZTT have a history of sloppy errors. Not sure why Cobra Bora should appear on two different style 12"s, but not complaining. Contrique isn't really a ver...

Agree. Brilliant. Elements of Lift Heavy mix and Black Dartagnon.
