Planet Rock and Other Tales of The 808 Documentary Teaser

For the music purists among us, the Roland TR-808, shouldn’t be an extra-terrestial  piece of equipment, more than that it’s a part of music history. Helping producers like Dr Dre, Kanye West and even Marvin Gaye give their sound form, it still hasn’t lost it’s relevancy.

In this preliminary teaser for Planet Rock and Other Tales of the 808, by director Alex Dunn,  some of the industry’s most succesfull producers discuss the game-changing piece of equipment and the accompanying seminal record from Afrika Bambaataa. Featuring interviews with the likes of ?uestlove, Diplo, A-Trak, Skrillex and many others, the aforementioned Roots bandleader calls it the “gold standard.” More information on progress and release of the film can be tracked via their Facebook page.
