Fantastic stuff, cannot believe how well the music has aged. Great to hear the old tracks remastered and the new stuff is spot on - especially In Yolk - I'm not usually one for ambient stuff but this track is superb, it would not sound out of place on a space movie soundtrack!

Absolutely top draw - It's great to see it now getting official 'album' status and it's surely among 808's best pieces of work.

Can't wait to experience the bonus tracks!!

I noticed on EIL.com they already have pre-orders for the Jap bonus remaster of '90'. One of my all-time favs.. I'm saving up!! It's gonna be a brilliant 808 year I tells ya!

HAPPY 808 88/08 everyone!! Best two decades of modern music!

You're right there PfC!

I'm listening to my Quadrastate now. I hadn't realised State to State was so different from Utd State 90. It was absolutely yonks ago when I last heard Quadrastate and I'd forgotten.

808 Heaven. :D :D :D

I can't believe such a gem has been hidden for so many years. I wonder what other gems are hidden away in the 808 vault!

Quadrastate reviewed in Record Collector (by Kris Needs):

"Back to the future with the dance arm of Madchester

This year’s 20th anniversary of the acid house revolution has seen a steady stream of reissues, club nights and media attention turning the occasion into one long party. It’s only fitting, then, that Manchester trio 808 State are back in action plus the subject of a reissue programme by both ZTT and Rephlex, who have already released the Newbuild and Prebuild albums first released on Creed, and now complete the trilogy with Quadrastate.

The music here was created on basic technology but helped shape the panoramic spectrum of today’s electronic music while shaking up the city’s indie scene. Tracks such as Fire Cracker and Deepville use Detroit techno to build a distinctly British style of electronic dance music, although the Manchester lineage continued as they mixed their mates and house pioneers New Order. The album is notable for featuring Pacific State, their euphoric single which became a world-renowned club anthem and a true late 80s classic. Also here (with extra acid mix) is Let Yourself Go, the group’s first single from 1988 which *******. The Second Summer Of Love was a recklessly magical time when all rules were broken. Here’s one of the cornerstones."

So much for the "No samples-used discussed here"-policy, eh...? 8)

Hopefully, my copy of "Quadrastate" arrives today; and I'll be having kids over, too...!
Looking forward broadening their musical-horizons! :wink:

(P.S. Don't leave your kids musical-tastes to random chance - Indoctrinate NOW!) :D
