With the Roland Lifestyle TR-808 Digital Collectible release we’ve made the first step in bringing Roland into Web3 and the Metaverse. We are not only paying homage to the Roland Corporation, an organization that has influenced sound more than any other company in the world, but also paying homage to the creators, producers and artists who have used Roland equipment to move culture. It’s Roland Lifestyle’s deepest honor to be involved with Roland’s first step into Web3. Now it’s your turn to be a part of the braintrust that decides where we go from here by being one of the first 88 people to own the TR-808 NFT.
Club 88 is reserved for the first 88 people to mint the TR-808 NFT. Once we reach 88 mints we will close the mint and reopen in phased intervals at a later date. As a Club 88 member you’ll be receiving access to our holder’s only mastermind where we will have private discussions via Zoom, IRL events and our token gated Discord to ideate on innovative ways to further integrate Roland Lifestyle and Roland into Web3 and the Metaverse. The best ideas from our community will be presented by Roland Lifestyle directly to the executives at Roland Corporation. From there we will work together to bring these ideas to market, benefitting all Club 88 members.
There were only 12,00 TR-808 drum machines produced from 1980-1982. Soon after it’s release, the 808 became a cornerstone of the emerging electronic, dance, and hip hop genres, popularized by early hits such as "Sexual Healing" by Marvin Gaye, "I Want To Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me) by Whitney Houston, to "Rock The Bells" by LL Cool J. The TR-808 Drum Machine Changed Music Forever.
Immortalized by the biggest artist in music, the TR-808 has been used to make more hit records than any other drum machine. Records like, ‘Doin’ it Right featuring Panda Bear by Daft Punk, 'The Way You Move' by Outkast, 'Xtal' by Aphex Twin, ‘Love Lockdown’ by Kanye West ‘Chimes’ by Hudson Mohawke, ‘Drunk in love’ by Beyone and the list goes on and on.
