808 State: Manchester musician Martin Price said he took it from an early Roland beat box, the TR 808. His earlier choice was even better: The Hit Squad.
808 State, English club dance music group. Named after the Roland TR-808 drum machine, which was central to the development of club dance music in the UK in particular, they came to prominence as part of the Manchester dance music boom of the late 1980s and early 90s and were influential in bringing techno music to a wide audience in the UK. Formed in 1988 by Graham Massey (b 1960), Martin Price (b 1955) and 'A Guy Called Gerald' (Gerald Simpson), they released the acid house album Newbuild (Creed) in the same year, shortly after which Gerald left the group. DJs Andy Barker (b 1969) and Darren Partington (b 1969) joined for Quadrastate (Creed, 1988), which was less hard-edged and more influenced by Detroit techno. The following year saw their first hit with Pacific State (ZTT), a house track distinguished by an insidiously catchy soprano saxophone line which had been played at Manchester’s influential Haçienda club for months before its release, and the album 808:90 (ZTT, 1989). A year after the popular Ex:El (ZTT, 1991), Price left the group. They continued to release records throughout the decade, although never repeated their success of the early 1990s.
