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.

And there's no acknowledgement that this is a reprint?

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 ...

Re: 808 State In Yer Face (Bicep remixes)

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

Re: 808 State drum patterns – any online?

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...

808 State drum patterns – any online?

Hello all, Haven't posted here for ages, but am glad to see that the forum's still going strong. I'm currently trying to work out the drum pattern from 'In yer face'. There's so much going on in the mix that it's difficult to hear every percussive instrument. Some of the sounds in there are, of cour...

San Francisco 'here we go' sample

Afternoon all, Apologies if this has been asked before. Anyone know where the 'here we go' sample on 'San Francisco' comes from? In Alain Patrick's review http://www.discogs.com/808-State-exel/master/27737 he mentions that the sample also appears in 'Pacific symphony' by Transformer 2. But according...

... oh, and I've also noticed that it looks like the actual mix name of "In yer face" (ie. In yer face mix) is finally listed on "Ex:el".

I didn't include this in the other thread because I was asking as much about the original version as about the reissue. I'm glad "Ex:el" is being preserved as per the original vinyl. Although to be honest, with the original issue I'd have taken out "Cübik" and left in the Euro Bass mix of "Olympic" ...

Ex:el ending

I've just been on HMV's site and had a look at the tracklistings for 808's reissues next month. I see that "Ex:el" CD1 now ends with "Techno bell" rather than "Olympic", which I'm quite pleased about, as I always thought the flutey mix of "Olympic" was far weaker than the Euro Bass mix, and "Techno ...

That has to be mine. "In a vision" is one of the greatest dance tracks of all time, so I can't wait to hear what you've done with it. Not sure about the description of "the Miami Bass inspired ‘Security’ from Beat Club", though – it always sounded more New Order influenced to me. Especially the voca...
