From the birth of Hip Hop and Electro through Techno, Electronica, Jungle, Rave, Drum and Bass and it's evolution into Dubstep, Bass House, Footwork and Trap, the Roland TR 808 Kick Drum's ubiquitous Boom and Thump is without doubt the sound that defines an era of Bass-centric music more than anything else.

Tom Middleton has a deep rooted love for this revolutionary instrument and has been busy preparing a DJ set based on the History of the Roland TR 808 Kick Drum for Memory Box at Corsica Studios on Saturday 6th July.

Memory Box is a night that delves deep into the archives of defining genres over the last 25 or so years of electronic music. So on this very special night, come and get your geek on as Tom Middleton takes you on a history lesson of one of the most prolific pieces of studio kit to emerge in the last three decades.  Expect Hip Hop, Electro, Techno, Rave, Jungle, D&B, Dubstep, Trap, Footwork... it's all about the 808 Kick!'

“I remember hearing and feeling that deep low end sub bass kicking you in the chest and making your nethers rattle when a local DJ dropped Run DMC's Peter Piper on a system with 18" Sub woofers and thinking this is the best thing I'd ever heard!” enthuses Tom.

Filling out the history lesson, Memory Box creator Robin Ball will be playing his Memory Box set of 90’s house, techno, beats and breaks from some of his favorite labels like Warp, R&S, Outer Rhythm, KMS, Transmat and S.U.A.D.

In contrast to this, Socialeyes host room 2 with Wiggle club night and label boss Nathan Coles and Robin Ball supported by the Isolater DJs playing upfront tech house and techno.
