press promo cd

Postby graham » 06 May 2008 17:34

We are looking to do a press promo cd to go along with the cd releases
a kind of overview including all era s of 808.
try picking .try picking 18 tracks that give the best overview (if you have any spare time) this may help to choose them.

Okey dokey, here's my first attempt (I'd be interested to see what Pete and Ancodia come up with)!

(I'm assuming that we're only talking about tracks off Ninety/Ex:el/Gorgeous/Don Solaris here?)

Pacific
Magical Dream
Ancodia
Cobra Bora
Cubik
Olympic 93 (Word Mix?)
In Yer Face
Ooops
Spanish Heart
Timebomb
10x10
La Luz
Moses
Nimbus
Bombadin
Bond
Lopez
Azura

I've tried to pick up the well-known tracks from each album, and also tried (but probably failed!) to pick an equal number of tracks from each album...

The tracklisting will be quite similar to the Best Of CD.
But I'd include "Pump Yer Fist" and the "Two Tribes" remix.

Charters must be in for such a project:

Pacific
Cubic
In Yer Face
The Only Rhyme That Bites
Olympic
Ooops
One In Ten
Lopez
Pacific 98

Then I would go for vocal tracks:

Magical Dream
Spanish Heart
Europa
Bond
Azura

Then I have some personal faves to fill up:

Donkey Doctor
Lift
Plan 9
Black Morpheus

I guess that is 18 choiced 808 gems.

Off 90:

    Ancodia
    Pacific
    Cobra Bora
    808080808
    Sunrise

Off Ex:El:

    In Yer Face
    Olympic
    Lambrusco Cowboy
    San Francisco
    Ooops

Off Gorgeous:

    Europa
    Nimbus
    Moses
    Timebomb

Off Don Solaris:

    Azura
    Jerusahat
    Black Dartangnon
    Mooz


I think that shows a good range of styles and confirms the diversity of 808 State's music and the influence it has had.

I was toying between Cubik and Lambrusco Cowboy and decided to ditch Cubik. Sorry...... :(

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 work well I think.
