Where would music be without the invention of the Roland TR-808 drum machine? Upcoming music film 808 fairly suggests that the world would be a much more boring place. Arguing the case for the technology are the artists who have used one to create unforgettable music. Lining up as talking heads in the film are Rick Rubin, Pharrell, and Questlove plus electronic music producers like Diplo, Goldie, and members of New Order.
808 is narrated by Zane Lowe and arrives on Apple Music on December 9. Check out the trailer above.
