  • Holy crap. How I miss this??? Cool AF. Thanks for sharing!!!!

  • couple of nice tracks there! loving the gear porn clip at 2.26 B)

  • Thanks for posting @R_2 - I've always been very fond of 808 State and this most recent output totally surpasses any expectations I'd have of them in 2019. 'Tokyo Tokyo' is such a bumping homage to the machines ... love it.

  • Wonder where that studio is. It's obviously an old TV studio, the sort of place they would have put nightly news to air from up until everything went widescreen in the 90s.

  • That was dope ass!

    Yes, apparently it’s in the old Granada Studios in Manchester:

    “Everything happened in the former home of the North West broadcasting giant Granada, which contains the small studio where The Beatles recorded a TV session in 1963 and 808 State first performed for Granada cameras in 1989, as well as huge spaces now used for everything from the filming of Peaky Blinders to one-off gigs by Skepta and Autechre. Graham and Andrew worked in the so-called Transmission Suite, which was once the nerve centre of the whole place – and, by extension, what poured forth from TV sets across a huge swathe of England. “It feels like mission control Houston,” says Graham. “The furniture is in a huge arc, with a wall of about eighty TV monitors. And the room is encased in glass, so it’s a room within a room. If you pull the floor up, there’s wiring from the 1980s, on top of wiring from the 1970s, on top of wiring from the 1960s, on top of wiring from the 1950s. It’s like Industrial Geology. And the whole room is wired to a building the size of a village.”

    “It’s an amazing place,” offers Andrew. “It’s like going into something like [sci-fi TV classic] Blake’s 7. When Granada moved out, they just left all the equipment there. There were half-empty cups of coffee still on the table. And they’d left all the vision mixers on the desk. We basically went in and put our stuff on top of theirs. It was a really big room. And it was quite eerie being in there. There were a few moments where we were like, ‘What was that noise?’ There has been word the place was haunted.”

    Second EP “Subsequent Granada Report” will be released August 30th.

  • Yessssss

  • Is anyone else feeling inspired by the sound of these two EPs? It’s all very Hacienda! I feel compelled to open Gadget and make something similar (though considerably less accomplished).

  • @Beathoven Yes, I am very inspired by the sound! On first listen, I thought they sounded generic compared to my favorites on ex:el , but after a second louder listen, it really struck me how thick and full the sounds are, and how clear and in your face the mix is. It’s making me want to get back into analog gear.

  • Full album is out:

  • Heavy rotation <3
