Check out the trailer for the upcoming music documentary 808.
The Roland TR-808 drum machine is one of the most influential instruments in the R&B, hip-hop, house, techno and many more genres. The 808 has been used on more hits than any other drum machine out there.
Released back in 1980, the TR-808 quickly spread across the music world, making its way into many different genres and maintaining icon status. Although the instrument is still used today, a new film is being released to highlight its level of importance.
Directed by Alex Dunn, the film has already hit the independent film circuit and will officially release on December 9th through Apple Music.
808 features guest appearances from the likes of Pharrell, the Beastie Boys, Rick Rubin, Questlove, Diplo, New Order, Lil Jon, Felix Da Housecat and many many more. Check it out below and let us know what you think!
