808 ★★★★

Amazon Prime* – Watchlist

71/100

Growing up with acid house, techno, hardcore and jungle I've always loved the 808 drum machine and the music it produced.
I never really noticed that Marvin Gaye, Rick Rubin & Phil Collins also used it to great effect.

The documentary style is a bit clunky and some of the talking heads are a bit annoying (I love you Goldie but please stop doing these) but overall the music and the story behind how some of it was produced is enough for me.

I was so happy that THIS tune got referenced
