808 Box: 5th Anniversary

Spain's Fundamental Records stable is behind this lovingly curated artifact. Dedicated to the vital Roland rhythm box behind so many crucial electro cuts, '808 Box: 5th Anniversary' is the latest and biggest in a series of annual vinyl box sets, snapshots of where the electro movement is at that point in time. This edition has 11 records, a t-shirt and screen print but the calibre of artists onboard should be the real draw. Tracks from Luke Eargoggle, The Hacker, Bass Junkie, Umwelt and many more represent the full sweep of the sound, and range in style from Drexciyan atmospherics to acidic funk. Lush.
