Very near the start of the movie Straight Outta Compton there’s a shot of the machine that inspired this shirt. Placed next to the Technics turntables in Dr Dre’s bedroom is the Roland TR-808 Drum Machine. At our label we LOVE dance music and have LOVED it since way back, 1988 to be precise. The 808 drum machine was the rhythm backbone to 1000’s of dance and Hip Hop tunes and is still being used today. We’re very happy to celebrate it’s influence in our lives with this incredibly faithful line drawing by our chief artist Jo Johnson.
There are two versions of this shirt. Black on white and white on black.
This shirt is for those in the know or those who appreciate a bit of classic technology on their chest.
At time of writing there are only 150 of these shirts on the planet and that’s across sizes small to extra large so it’s a real rarity.
Please note, our shirts are not produced using cheap blanks. We source our own high grade cotton and have created our own slim fit cut to be slightly hugging.
