The Mancunian electronic music pioneers 808 State are about to return with Transmission Suite, their first new album since 2002. Recorded in the former nerve centre of the Granada broadcasting empire, some of its tracks are haunted by their home city’s industrial past – and, for that matter, the influence of classic Detroit techno - but the whole thing stays true to the band’s career-long focus on what comes next.

“We’re trying to make a future for other people to immerse themselves in,” says Graham Massey. “That’s always been a big part of 808 State: these kind of landscapes of futurism.”
