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

Contrique isn't really a versus track. Maybe Lopez would have been more at home on that 12" and they could have swapped places. Yes, much more sensible. "Contrique" is no more a collaboration than, say, 808 using a sample of The Jam's "Start" or Bowie's "Chant of the ever-circling skeletal family"....

How is Jon Hopkins so high up the bill? He's a complete nonentity.

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

By the way, it's very nice to see Markus, NickKing and Ancodia still online for 808 after all these years. You lot are hardcore die-hards and keepers of the flame. 8)

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

The Eno 7" of Lopez is indeed on Blueprint . I can see only two unreleased things on here so far, but having said this, Ian Peel (who has compiled this, and, as usual, hasn't done it in any way I'd have liked) has previously given standard names to previously unreleased mixes, eg. the slightly diffe...

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

Moses was released as a promo CD . Sorry – right you are. I'd never seen that before. Is it much different to the album version? Could be this: Cübik (State to Pan Am Mix)? That's already on CD2 of the Ex:el remastered CD. I'm guessing that "Ancodiacobrabora" is some kind of medley, or perhaps a la...

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

It's here already, 28 February. And it isn't a reissue of the albums. Some exclusive stuff, apparently:

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

Is that all that this is? I was hoping that it was a 4LP of unreleased material, or at least something new. Having said this, the FGTH box of 12"s for last year's RSD was completely uninspired and overpriced.

There seems to be a corresponding 4LP of The Art Of Noise. I don't know what's in it.

Re: Making of Pacific State in Electronic Sound mag, again...

Dear God. I know that magazine publishing is in a horrible state, and that people are being made redundant all over the place. But this kind of corner-cutting is only going to accelerate the demise.

Re: ex:el expanded double vinyl release

Ian Peel is still incapable of getting the name "Utsula Head" correct – even when he places emphasis on it in one of his lousy essays. His standard of research is poor. The Monkey Mafia remix is from 1998; it doesn't belong on a reissue of a 1991 album. There are many contemporary remixes from 1991 ...

Was this an official release? Was it remixed from master tapes or stems, or is it just a re-edit?

Very useful, thanks. There's so much going on in the original, and this helps to deconstruct it a little.

Re: 808 State drum patterns – any online?

Graham, many thanks for this. I hadn't heard of Mark Butler's book, but will seek it out. If you ever transcribe any 808 patterns, it would make a great set of lessons for those of us trying to learn rhythm programming. Many of 808 State's rhythm patterns are so dense that I'm sure that some details...
