Re: State to State 3

I am absolutely loving State to State 3. It's a damn shame we could not have had proper released hard copies as I for one would have snapped them up in a blink of an eye but downloadable content is good enough I suppose. It keeps production costs down. A great Xmas present to us by 808 for making it...

Re: Best of 808 State (Blueprint)

808 State will return? I also like the sound of that. Imagine a new album with bang up to date sound but with that certain flavour only found in an 808 mixed or produced track. It's a bold statement (excuse the pun) but how true? Is Graham keeping some secrets about what he, Daz and Andy are doing t...

Yes truly great stuff. Absolutely love The Bells and Hypermatic. Thanks to Graham and co for sharing these and to Markus for posting them for us all. A cover for all downloads since the Web Build CD is coming. Hope you all enjoy it as I have putting it together. It looks fantastic, the best yet and ...

I just seen this thread. Yes this is a truly sad news to hear. I have always loved 808 States covers and Johnson and Panas have been a big influence on me in designing covers for the website. I always credit them on my designs where I have used or been influenced by their work and logos. I am not fa...

PACIFIC 516

Does anybody know if Pacific Break, Pacific b and Pacific 516 are available on CD anywhere? Or, does anybody have copies of these on a CD transfered from vinyl, or an MP3 copy that they could sort me out with? I am pretty desperate for these tracks as I don't have the means to convert these mixes in...

Just seen this thread and this is really good news. My hopes for this addition to the 808 State archive materal is that it is a completely new "Best Of" and not a rehash updated 808:88:98, although that in itself would be welcomed if nothing else is planned. Everybody has their own favourite tracks ...

808 REUNITE

I too was extremely excited when i read the initial post. It would be an absolute dream come true. Imagine, some sort of anniversary reunion, a one off new album of completely new material and probably a few live shows and then that's it. . . no more. A fitting end to a such influencial group. If on...

808 Collaboration

Yeah i hope some time in the future there would be an 808 anthology box set of remixes that 808 have done with other people's work. I always imagined it would be called 808 State : Collabor8. Maybe thats a bit too Altern8 but it would work as a title. Maybe just 808 State The Remix Anthology says it...

STREETSOUNDS NU ELECTRO 1 & TR-808 poster

This posting is for all you guys who remember the old Street Sounds Electro albums. The Electro's were instrumental at bringing Hip Hop culture to the UK audience back in the 80's. By fusing Rap, Funk and European electronic music such as Kraftwerk to create New Age Funk, Breakbeats and Electro. Whe...

They didn't single out D Mob or 808. It was just music in the background to highlight the Acid era at the end of the 80's. For the Madchester section Happy Mondays' music was playing. The focus was really on House parties and the shameful thing they said was that alot of people who were gonna go to ...

SHAMEFUL THINGS OF THE 80'S

Did anyone see the program on Sky 3 last night presented by Sir Alan Sugar? All about shameful things of the 80's. Acid House and Warehouse raves got a mention as did the Madchester scene. Regarding Acid house music they played D-Mob's We Call It Acieeed and 808 State's Pacific. They might have call...

PRODIGY

I love Invaders Must Die. As has already been said it echos back to Experience and Jilted Generation but maintains the hardcore rock/drum and bass style of Fat of the Land and Always Outnumbered. I felt that Always Outnumbered was not as good as Fat of the Land. I felt it was a bit messy in places a...

808 State RETIRED!! Surely not. Come on guys you have got more cool tracks in you yet. Look at Jean Michel Jarre. He is still going strong and although his last album was so different from what we have all come to accept as Jarre's style it did show he can re-invent himself in modern times just as M...
