The Roland TR-808 Drum Machine has had a phenomenal effect on the course of popular music. The 808 didn't sound anything like real drums, but starting with Afrika Bambaataa's Planet Love in 1982, it would change music forever, laying the groundwork for hip-hop and dance beats.

This is the story of a sound that has transcended genre to provide the rhythmic foundation of the way the world sounds NOW. 808 is a film about the most iconic drum machine that has ever existed and how it became synonymous with electronic music almost by accident. It's about the artists and producers who stumbled upon it, used it, experimented with it and created music with its unique sounds. These artists include Beastie Boys, David Guetta, Phil Collins, Fatboy Slim, Pharrell and a host more.

And, of course, the music plays a huge part in the film offering a fantastic soundtrack to their experiences.
