808state - Gorgeous album FLAC

808 State have a knack of sounding like they are punching their equipment to get the sounds into your ears. Hard key stabs, and groovy bassline from Massey et al, not as commercially successful as previous releases but a sure ‘State’ classic. The highlight of the Gorgeous release is easily the smooth dubby ‘Lemon’. Reply Notify me Helpful.

Gorgeous is 808 State's most vocal-oriented effort, and features a number of fairly anonymous and forgettable guest singers. The record is most successful when it sticks to the group's trademark atmospheric dance instrumentals, although even those are fairly run-of-the-mill.

808 State are an English electronic music group, formed in 1987 in Manchester, taking their name from the Roland TR-808 drum machine. 808 State's style has been labelled as techno and house, and the band are regarded as pioneers of the acid house sound. Martin Price was the owner of a record store, Eastern Bloc, and was also the founder of the independent record label, Creed. Customers Graham Massey and Gerald Simpson joined Price to form a hip hop group called Hit Squad Manchester. Soon after, the band shifted to acid house, using the name 808 State for the first time.

Gorgeous is their fourth studio album. The album has some new wave in?uence, sampling Joy Division's track 'She's Lost Control' in 'Contrique', Ian McCulloch as guest vocalist on 'Moses' and '10 X 10' a gospel-house track built on the foundation of The Jam's 'Start!'. You will also find a reworking of UB40's 'One in Ten'. Furthermore the album features guest vocalists Barrington Stuart, Rachel McFarlane and Caroline Seaman.
