iTunes Review

The Roland TR-808 drum machine was intended to give studio musicians a simple tool for making backbeats. Instead, it kickstarted a revolution—one whose story is captured in full by the documentary 808, as well as these tracks. Beastie Boys flipped the 808's icy beats in reverse to make “Paul Revere”; Shannon’s freestyle pop breakout “Let the Music Play” is propelled by its gently swung kicks and snares; and Afrika Bambaataa & The Soulsonic Force's electro classic “Planet Rock” thrives on its throbbing thuds and crisp hi-hats.

No Egyptian Lover?

Egypt, Egypt!! Will still buy the comp but that's disappointing. Even Roland put Egypt in their book about their iconic hardware and featured his use of the 808 in his music.
