I'm really excited that we'll be holding a very special London premiere of 808 at Sonic Cinema at the BFI Southbank on the 8th August 2015.
Tickets go on sale today (Tuesday 14th July) at 11.30am here
I'm extremely proud that the guys at the BFI have invited us to screen the film there, at the home of cinema in the city we live and work in. It should be a great event, with a Benugo bar post screening party with special guest DJs, including a set by Andrew Weatherall.
This fun-filled doc about the Roland TR-808 drum machine includes many star-studded contributors.
808 is the most fun you’ll have watching a film about a drum machine you’ll have this year. With impressive detail, it charts the genesis and seismic impact of arguably the most important musical instrument of our time: the Roland TR-808 drum machine. A glittering array of musicians tell us what the machine means to them, including: Afrika Bambaataa; Arthur Baker; Questlove; Phil Collins; Rick Rubin; Damon Albarn; Diplo and New Order.
With very special guest DJs Andrew Weatherall and Andy Lewis (Paul Weller band) playing in the Benugo bar post-screening.
