TR808 Classic Beats on Korg Electribe SX part 1!

Recreations, again by ear, of some classic early 80s beats that were originally made on a Roland TR-808 drummachine. This became the signature sound for freestyle music and later for house.

No actual records were sampled. All sounds are from the 808, except the synth drum solos played on the ribbon controller. I noticed that some of the tracks actually used LinnDrum kicks *. Only the SX's internal effects and synthesis were used.

Mantronix - 808 Beats
Shannon - Let the Music Play
Freeez - IOU
Man Parrish - Hip Hop Bebop
GLOBE & Whiz Kid - Play that Beat Mr. DJ *
Nineteen - Paul Hardcastle *
C.O.D. - In the Bottle
Marvin Gaye - Sexual Healing
