Re: mcr hit squad mp3?

i know this is not exclusively an 808 track, but oh how i wish that there was an mp3 of the wax on the melt 12"...i've never heard it :( That would be absolutely great, especially to have the whole 12'' on here! Here's hoping :D! Also loving Varmbath St. Spead...it's from 1995 but the 909 gives it ...

Denki Groove

I just noticed the picture of 808 with Denki Groove on the pictures section here...I thought that was pretty cool as both 808 State and Denki Groove are contenders for my favourite bands! I was wondering if 808 have been linked to Denki Groove in any other ways?

I use Warpmart for as many orders as possible, quick ordering and a generally good selection. Mine came this morning - what can I say? Sounds even better than when I heard i on the vinyl for the first time, tremendous stuff, a great spin on acid music. Lovely bonus tracks too - In Yolk is more or le...

I love this band! I discovered them recently and left a comment on their page...I think they could ll have got the name from Gorgeous. I can't think of anywhere else the term 'Sexy Synthesier' has appeared! Gotta love the video game sounds.

WHAT??? 808 State did a remix for Pizzicato Five?? That's like...my two favourite bands!!!! I think that (this might sound strange) but the most 'critically acclaimed' stuff should be on rather than singles or an equal balance. Also, if there can be any remixes of other artists featured, they would ...

Wow yeah the Daft Punk thing was interesting, no idea they used so many samples! Yeah sampling is a massive part of dance music, heck I would be an utter hypocrite claiming to be against it doing it myself in my attempts at tunes. The Crystal Castles thing was a bit controversial because they used t...

Crystal Castles ripping off music?

I noticed quite a few people liked Crystal Castles on here, I did until about an hour ago lol:

Actually SteveC mentioned Spooky...they returned from a kind of hiatus recently and put out loads of new material didn't they? As well as the fact that 'Gargantuan' is an incredible album. I reckon they'd be worth a shot, as they still play live regularly.

No need to be worried, it was a very good set - double opening salvo of 'Flow Coma' and 'Narcossa' was awesome!

Me!!!! :D www.myspace.com/stevenosurname

Seriously, I think SMD would be a good choice, maybe someone like Leila or - this'd be cool - Autechre? Maybe someone old skool as well, like Altern8, for a mix of retro and new.
