‘808’ a Documentary on The Drum Machine That Changed Everything

808 is a forthcoming documentary about the Roland TR-808 drum machine – introduced in 1980, this little thing helped shape the sound of hip-hop, synth pop, and dance music. It’s been used by so many, and is still so popular that Roland may introduce a new version – the first since 1986. Featured artists include Diplo, Pharrell, New Order, Rick Rubin, Questlove, Phil Collins, Damon Albarn, Fatboy Slim, David Guetta, Lil Jon, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Talking Heads’ Chris Frantz, Goldie, and many more. 808 is set for release next year.
