Diplo, ?uestlove, Oakenfold, Toddla T, Fatboy Slim, and more to appear in 808 documentary

By Ken Taylor


We wouldn’t be telling you anything new if we were to say that Roland’s TR-808 Rhythm Composer changed the landscape of music forevermore. However, there’s a whole lot more nuance to it than just that, and the likes of Diplo, ?uestlove, Felix Da Housecat, Toddla T, Fatboy Slim, Soul Clap, Paul Oakenfold, and plenty of other stars of electronic music have got stories for days about the hallowed piece of gear.

So check out the trailer up top for the upcoming documentary Planet Rock and Other Tales of the 808, which just so happens to be co-produced by Arthur Baker, as it continues its production. The film is due out next year.
