Memory Box parties delve deep into the archives of defining genres over the last 25 years of electronic music. Memory Box has recently held successful nights at Corsica Studios inviting Tom Middleton to explore his love of the ‘History of the Roland TR-808 drum Machine’ and Justin Robertson playing one of his trademark ‘Acid House’ sets. With planning underway for more nights in the Memory Box series, this summer see’s the more intimate version with the start of the Memory Box Social at the Horse and Groom, one of Shoreditch’s most beloved ‘Disco Pubs’.
Digging through his crates for the Memory Box Social on the 17th August is Jerome Hill. A self confessed sufferer of multiple music personality disorder he plays it all from Techno through to Hip Hop, Old Skool, dancehall, funk and has been DJing and collecting records since 1990. Jerome played his first gig at the legendary Wag club on Wardour Street, then held a long term residency on infamous London sound system JIBA throughout the 90's. Today Jerome maintains a hectic DJ schedule. Respected as much for his scratching and mixing skills as for his track selection, and shunning the image of the modern laptop DJ, Jerome is Vinyl all the way and loves challenging himself and the crowd on the decks. Be sure, there'll always be a surprise just around the corner..
Also playing the old gems is Robin Ball whose passion and knowledge of electronic music both old and new inspired him to create Memory Box. Robin got his first gig in 1988 and never looked back. He’s been putting on parties and playing around the globe ever since. Memory Box is an offshoot and an antidote to his Socialeyes parties which focus on forward thinking electronic dance music at some of London’s best venues.
