"Possibly the most personally rewarding set to research and play in my career to date (thank you for inviting me to play Robin!) These classics sounded incredible on the system at Corsica Studios. Above is the tracklist for an almost chronological and 90% comprehensive history of THE pioneering records that feature the Roland 808 Drum Machine spanning 33 years and a multitude of Bass Music styles. One of the more challenging playlists to mix live in a club considering all the tempos and styles. Particularly after 3 days on the road, and very little sleep, complete with vinyl crackles, a few wonky old school vinyl mixes and no tempo syncing software. So... if you can put up with a few bumps in the road in the first hour or so, the journey will be worth it!
Note : If you can think of any other tracks that feature the 808 that predate any of these then suggestions feedback and comments welcome! Thanks for listening - Tom Middleton @djtommiddleton
