Manchester’s original acid house pioneers, trailblazers for the entire UK acid house and techno scene return for a UK tour at end 2018 celebrating 808 States’ legacy, their ongoing influence and continuing relevance to modern dance music.
Now some three decades since 808 State first graced the arena with their game changing electronica. The band remain in the unique position as one of the prime originators of UK dance music, having arrived on the scene early which saw them shape dance music from their first releases.
Still guided by an enduring spirit of experimentation and individuality, “808 State:30″ sees the band perform fan favourites from their five major albums in an entirely new set, which also features exclusive new material from the band’s upcoming sixth album Transmission Suite.
808 were influential on the likes of Aphex Twin, Autechre, The Chemical Brothers and more besides, “808 State : 30″ showcases the impact and originality of the group and how Manchester’s acid house heroes have remained at the forefront of electronic music for some thirty years and counting.
