Leave it to the legendary Arthur Baker - producer of Afrika Bambaataa & the Soul Sonic Force's "Planet Rock" amongst other classics - to produce a documentary on the significance of the Roland TR-808 drum machine - the cornerstone piece of gear of so much influential music to emerge in the '80s. Planet Rock and Other Tales of the 808 doesn't arrive in full till next year, but the first tantalizing trailer gives us a pretty good idea of what's in store. New Order, Diplo, Questlove, A-Trak, Todd Terry, Baker himself, and many more interviewed - with 'nuff bass beneath their words. DOPE!
