Graham Massey, Andrew Barker & Darren Partington have been the line up of
808 State since mid 1991 (until their last album "Outpost Transmissions in
2002). Formed in 1988, previous members (A Guy Called) Gerald Simpson and
(Eastern Bloc Records Founder) Martin Price also feature on “Quadrastate”.
The band’s rare debut single, “Let Yourself Go / Deepville” is included on
this album, together with the inclusion of some other
previously-unreleased alternate versions and outtakes. It’s the first time
ever that the tracks have been released on CD and the entire project has
been lovingly remastered, to the customary Rephlex high standards.
"Quadrastate" completes the popular re-release trilogy on Rephlex, which
also included the highly acclaimed "Newbuild" and "Prebuild" albums (and
was accompanied by the successful "Acid House Mixes" of New Order).
Originally released on Creed Records, these recordings were born in
Manchester in the months after the second Summer of Love, in 1988/9. These
tracks were hugely influential to the popular electronic dance music
explosion that soon followed all around the world. And notably this is the
album where we originally heard the international hit song, "Pacific".
As with many producer teams, the combination of influences and
characteristics is what makes the sound unique. "Quadrastate" still has a
fresh sound; incredibly bouncy basslines, pioneering use of breakbeats and
all the energy and inspiration of analog-digital-hybrid jams.
Other classic 808 State reissues & remasters are planned later this year
by ZTT. Graham Massey (in the guise of Massonix) will be supporting
Autechre on their USA /Japanese tour in April and, after a long hiatus,
the full 808 State live band will be playing festivals and gigs throughout
2008 (Warehouse Project MCR, Primavera festival Barcelona, Gatecrasher
Festival, Bestival etc).
