Inspired by the Roland TR-808 drum machine, the four track Ep traverses icy ambient, spacey pads, hypnotic synthesizers, and “sci-fi inspired soundscapes.”

TEK​-​88 is adorned with a replica Roland TR-808 drum machine constructed entirely from Lego by 22a’s in-house artist Matt Carter.

It follows Tenderlonious’ Quarantena album, which featured some of our favourite artwork in 2020.
