More honour for Pacific State

Postby solarex » 12 May 2010 13:11

In his broadcast last week Radio One DJ Gilles Peterson did a retrospective show on drum'n'bass playing a series of epical releases, as he saw them.

At one point he credits Pacific State for being a major influence on the dreamy chords business in the drum'n'bass genre.

Hearing this came as a surprise for me, and is something I have never heard said anywhere else or thought of myself.

Unfortunetly the show is no longer officially available, but I will supply that quote here tonight.

Here goes.

Gilles Peterson on Pacific State.mp3 - 2.71MB

Hearing it again, I'm not really sure if he referes to a particular track og d'n'b as a whole. But listening to an early and influential cut as Parallel Universe by 4hero, which he playes earlier in the show, clearly has chord played out and sounding like Pacific State.

Many thanks. In all respect to Gilles Peterson, I love his show, in the snip I can't really make out if he'd actually ever heard of 'State 808' before... So exactly which Roni Size track was inspired by Pacific?
