Yeah, they'd better get a new album for then! What a great release date that would be! Hey, only got two years to do it, guys... :D

Saw the ad yesterday, why did they only play a tiny bit of the intro? That tune has the heaviest beats 808 ever recorded-why play the part where there isn't a bloody beat? It's meant to be a rave compilation!

I HATE adverts... :x

it's on the new 'Hacienda Classics' one out now (mixed by Peter Hook), I dunno if that came out first...it's been mixed but it is the Quadrastate version.

In fact, got Quadrastate last Sunday...'State Ritual'-is pure acid power.

I wouldn't say it's 808 at their best...but an achievement like Pacific or Cubik is hard to replicate. The singles (Tunes Splits The Atom, The Only Rhyme That Bites) are essential for 808 fans. I like Dance Yourself To Death :) The remix of Only Rhyme... (The Only Rhyme That B Y tes) is quality too,...

My album...

I don't want to seem like I'm just here trying to promote my music, but I've just done this album which can be heard (and, if you really feel like it, bought) at www.imusiclabel.com/steve.html -You'll probably just dismiss it as 'crappy NEW electronic music, never as good as the old stuff'... true, ...

The keyboard producing the chords is the Roland Juno 106. Its been through some samplers and stuff, but not much difference...

It would be nice to get some samples of one-anyone know a site?

wow!!!

this is quite cool. I typed in 808 State and got Eat Static, LFO, who I've heard of, and loads of others that I'd never heard of before, but'll have to search out! Oh yeah, and it played Chopsumwong off of Outpost Transmission...

yes, but Bjork isn't their only artist of repute-The Shamen were, too, and they topped the charts...but that isn't the point. I don't have any Bjork stuff-should I get the greatest hits, or something else?

it might be just my weird tastes, but Bond scares the hell out of me. Lopez is so moving...even when you find out the lyrics are about golf! the don solaris samples are worth downloading even if you're not planning to remix them-just to see how each track builds up. fascinating. I guess Ninetys more...

Junglist Soljah, Don...and why don't 808 put some more on? we don't want a million crappy remixes of Pacific, but stuff like Cobra Bora, Rollerball an...

Which 808 track should I remix?

Thinking of doing a remix of an 808 State track, but dunno what. I did this version of Pacific and sent it in, but I dont know what happened to that-it was a bit crap anyway. It sounds a bit pathetic, but I can only have a go at ones from 808:88:98, Ninety, Ex:El, The North At Its Heights (sound qua...

Butterfly's good. Could they do a design thats never made it to T-shirt before? A grey one with the Ninety front cover on the front would be cool. Ninety's got such a great front cover. And any chance of T-shirts in a size smaller than XL? :)
