The ultimate documentary on the 808 drum machine is on the way! First teased all the way back in 2012 by producer Arthur Baker the film simply titled ‘808’ keeps the pitch bouncing from the impact of Afrikka Bambaattaa’s Planet Rock. The film talks to members of the music community as well as the manufacturers about the legacy and the signature of the Roland TR-808 drum machine.
Featuring a list of cameos like Richie Hawtin, Diplo, New Order, Fatboy Slim, Felix Da Housecat, Pharrell Williams and much more 808 will be released soon and more excitingly the film should be accompanied by one hell of a soundtrack.
We are already waiting!
