“Hear musicians and producers like The Blessed Madonna, Graham Massey from 808 State, DJ Premier, Cosi Fanni Tutti. Stephen Morris from New Order, A Guy Called Gerald, Afrodeutsche, Jlin, Carl Craig and original co-creator of the 808 Don Lewis share their thoughts on the TR-808 and play some of the amazing music it has helped create.
The booming kick drum, snappy snares and crisp handclaps have been the rhythm section to some of your favourite tracks over the last forty years but you might never have realised. It is time to celebrate this plucky underdog that took over the world of music.
This playlist takes a journey through the music of the last 40 years featuring amazing eclectic and diverse music all featuring 808s in its DNA. From Electro, Hip-hop, House, Techno, Synth Pop and New Wave.”
