There Will Be A Movie About The 808 Drum Machine!
After nearly five years in the making, ’808’, the film chronicling the life of the Roland TR-808 drum machine is finally here. Narrated by Zane Lowe and featuring commentary and contributions from The Beastie Boys, New Order and Norman Cook (among others), the film concludes in the 808’s birthplace of Japan where Roland founder Ikutaro Kakehashi explains why the machine was discontinued at the same time it was appearing on just about every hit record. You can download the documentary from the iTunes store, as well as the official soundtrack which can be bought on vinyl alongside other exclusive 808 merch. Watch the trailer below:
