808 State get vocals from annoying singer James Dean Bradfield (from Manic Street Preachers) and Brian Eno has to step in.

It took two years to finish the 1996 album called ‘Don Solaris’. To celebrate its release in June 1996, a free concert was given at the Castlefield Amphitheatre in Manchester. Don Solaris featured artists such as James Dean Bradfield of ‘Manic Street Preachers’, Louise Rhodes of ‘Lamb’, Michael Doughty of ‘Soul Coughing’ and showed 808 State from a darker side.

To celebrate ten years of 808 State, 1998 saw the release of a Best Of 808 State album, entitled 808:88:98. In 1999, the classic Newbuild album was re-released on Rephlex records. Currently 808state are looking for a new recording contract.

Apart from making their own music, 808 State do remix- and production work for other artists and appear frequently as DJ’s.
