808 State

808 State are "masters of their art" (Q), "pioneers" (Future Music), "for sonic trailblazing and inestimable influence, among our most important groups" (Record Collector), and "Godfathers" (Nude), who "sketched the blueprint for British techno as we know it" (Mixmag).

“808 State had a great effect on music lovers, and the dance scene as a whole, influencing me and a whole generation of electronic musicians from 1988 onwards.” – Paul Hartnoll, Orbital

“I remember being out when the DJ first dropped Cübik and turning to my mate and saying ‘what the f*** is this?’… It was an anarchic sound I couldn’t ignore. A very original tune.” – Liam Howlett, The Prodigy

“808? A really interesting combination of Detroit techno and mid-70s experimental music. I’ll forever remember hearing Pacific State for the first time in 1989 or 1990 and thinking, ‘what in the world is this? It’s amazing'” – Moby

"I was working on Stakker Humanoid album stuff when Gaz (the other FSOL member) walked in with ‘Pacific State’ under his arm. ‘Gotta check this,’ he said, ‘it’s gonna f**king blow your head.’ And right enough—I sank back on the sofa and thought ‘shit, that’s Game Over.’ Graham is a true genius, a great visionary.’ – Brian Dougans, Future Sound of London
