AppleInsider reports that Alexander Dunn’s drum-machine documentary “808: The Movie,” which is all about the Roland-808 drum machine, has just been released as an Apple Music exclusive. It will also be available to download or rent on iTunes from December 16.

The documentary is narrated by Beats 1 star DJ Zane Lowe, and traces the origins of the legendary machine, as well as the part it still plays in modern music, and includes interviews with the likes of Afrika Bambaataa, Pharrell, Fat Boy Slim, Rick Rubin, Phil Collins, Beastie Boys, Questlove, Lil’ John, Diplo, Goldie, David Guetta, Richie Hawtin, Felix Da Housecat, and many more.

The TR-808 electronic rhythm composer was released in 1980 and was responsible for changing the face of modern popular music, creating a music revolution in many different genres, including rap, R&B, and electronica.

A genuine 808 machine is still considered a very valuable item, and even today you could expect to pay around $10,000 to buy one second-hand.
