Justin Robertson, Robin Ball & friends

Room 2
Deep house & techno: Modulate FM v’s Isolater

Acid can conjure up two thoughts: House music made with that lovely squelchy Roland TB-303 acid sound that emerged from Chicago in the mid 80’s; and the U.K acid house culture of the late 80’s / early 90’s warehouse parties from which dance music as we now know it was born and the hazy loved-up freedom of expression that came with it. We will be embracing both of these at memory box at Corsica Studios on the Friday 29th March. Selecting quality tracks you would have heard if you walked into an acid house party between 1986 and 1996. Lead by acid house legend Justin Robertson who will be showing us what’s in his memory box from this era.

From early Chicago heroes like DJ Pierre, Marshall Jefferson, Fingers Inc, Farley Jackmaster Funk, Fast Eddie and Trax Records through to next generation U.S artists like Joey Beltram, Josh Wink and the Relief Records roster. Alongside the early UK sound of A Guy Called Gerald, Baby Ford, Renegade Soundwave, 808 State; early Warp records artists like L.F.O and Nightmares on Wax; Outer Rhythm Records who launched the career of Leftfield and FFRR who discovered Orbital. Not forgetting important European labels like Harthouse and R&S Records. This just tips this iceberg on a whole host of artists, labels and inspiring electronic music that makes up the acid house scene that a lot of the quality music in clubland today takes a strong influence from. So for this night let’s doff our hats to these artists!

In contrast to this, Socialeyes Parties host room 2 with upfront deep house and techno from Modulate FM and Isolater  - two crews on the London underground scene.
