What do 808 State listen to?

Post by Magical Dream »

Do we know what 808 State themselves listen to? What are their drivers? What do they think is cool?

I have seen Andy mention Sonic Youth before,Darren Busta Rhmes and Buggles :D

And Graham Beastie Boys and Martin Denny.

I reckon Joy Division and The Jam too.

i'm more interested in hearing what the other visitors to this site listen to – both in terms of genres and specific artists. i'm sure it isn't all hardcore techno people in here – not that i'm knocking those who are! but i think of 808 as a (cliché ahoy) crossover band, and i suspect their audience reflect this.

as far as what genres we listen to, maybe there's some way of polling this – markus?

Good idea, maybe not a poll. Please feel free to just start a new topic in the music forum. Something like: What style of music do you listen to?

To get back to the original question:

I think they obviously have wide tastes, but basically: Graham = Jazz, Andy = Detroit Techno & Breakbeat, Darren = Indie & Breakbeat.
Secretly all three are into UK garage, R&B swingbeat and Happy Trance :wink:
