Gorgeous (Cass, Album). It must be down to Martin Price leaving 808 State, nothing they have ever done since 1991 has ever reached the same level of quality. Reply Notify me Helpful. Pretty good LP. It has a sort of out of the place tracklist.
Complete your 808state collection. 808state starts this album with an upbeat dancefloor classic "Colony" as a statement. Calms it down with the beautifully vocal "Moses" but "10 x 10" is the track that does it for me! Dreamy piano loops, Godspell vocals like you can hear in soulful house music, a rhythm that slowly builds up and BAM!
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.
