Roland and Serato celebrate #808Day with limited-edition pressing of TR-808 vinyl

Kicking off 808-day, Roland has announced the offer of limited-edition TR-808 Serato vinyl pressing, when you buy a DJ-808 controller.

The exclusive, collectible double-pack includes beats from the likes of Just Blaze, DJ QBert, Marley Marl, Egyptian Lover and Machinedrum. The tracks are joined by locked grooves on side one and a control tone for Serato DVS on side two.

The DJ-808, launched two years ago, can operate as a standalone mixer and utilising its phono inputs, can make full use of the TR-808 vinyl.

To get your hands on this soon-to-be rare cutting, head on over to the Roland website (opens in new tab).

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
