About this Event

PRAISE FOR TRANSMISSION SUITE

"As accomplished as anyone else around" 8/10, Mixmag

“Timeless… enduring music that still sounds relevant and fun” 8.5/10, DJ Mag

“One of the most exciting electronic albums in years” Blow Up Magazine

“Wanders confidently around a dystopian cityscape that is all its own” The Arts Desk

This Friday acid-house pioneers and electronic music legends 808 State will release

Transmission Suite, a record that remains true to the forward-thinking ethos of this

remarkable band three decades after they first formed. Now the band has

announced a UK tour for 2020, with appearances confirmed for their awe-inspiring

live show in Sheffield, London, Cardiff, Newcastle and Liverpool.

808 State are without doubt one of the most important bands in electronic music.

From their 1988 album debut LP Newbuild, (that won them notable early fans

including Aphex Twin: “It was the next step after Chicago acid, and as much as I

loved that, I could relate much better to 808 State. It seemed colder and more

human at the same time”), through collaborations with Bjork and New Order, to the

definitive Pacific State, their legacy and influence cannot be overstated.

Their new album Transmission Suite reflects the rich backstory of electronic music,

but with 808 State being 808 State, they also deliver an innovative and forwardthinking vision. Put simply, Transmission Suite – their seventh album – effortlessly

evokes the past, present and future.

Taking their live show on the road in 2020, 808 State will perform material from

across their history, weaving together 30 years of cutting-edge electronic music for a

dystopian rave worthy of any generation.

Ages 14+.

All ticket purchases include a £1 venue restoration levy.
