Acid Stomp

by Robin Ball

Here comes the first release from the newly formed Memory Box label, spawned from the club night of the same name who regularly throw parties celebrating the influences of today’s electronic music scene whilst encapsulating some of the most memorable moments in time, and inviting legends and icons to play.  The Memory Box label comes from the same stable as Groovepressure, run by Robin Ball who is the main artist on this first release.  Memory Box is about keeping the Acid House culture and vibe alive so it seems fitting that the first release is dedicated to the acid sound. Acid Stomp and Back in the Dayz are homages to Acid House, whilst Acid Duck is a slice of psychedelic tech-house and Sqolch brings a more contemporary feel to the acid house sound.

Then Again

by Orson Bramley

This second release on the Memory Box label is by Orson Bramley who is best known as the founder of the uk's electro funk pioneers Transparent Sound, one of the UK's longest running electro acts. Orson has recently been playing some live Acid House shows at Memory Box parties and this is the result. The original mix is an acid electro crossover. He also delivers a four to the floor mix and last up on the A side is a beautiful ambient strings mix. The B side sees two remixes from acclaimed producer and Memory Box head honcho Robin Ball, who is also known for his work as Resonators on his recently re-launched Groovepressure label. One under his new breakbeat rave alias Robin Beats and the other under his own name which sees him take in a deeper house, techno, electro vibe more akin to his Groovepressure label.

Drop It Down Low

by Robin Ball

Memory Box —the label born from the party of the same name—looks to boss Robin Ball for its next release. Following his first EP, which had all the influences of acid house past and future, this release shows respect to Chicago.

Ball has been involved in the dance scene since the age of 14 when he first started his own parties. Since then he has emerged as a singular voice with a discography that takes in essential cuts all the way back to the mid-nineties, most often on Groovepressure. Now back under his own name, he is in fine form.

The title track opens the EP in robust fashion, with bubbly drums and gurgling synths all underpinned by a knotted bassline. Dark, filtered vocals add menace and sci-fi pads help take this one out of this world. The dub version removes the vocal and thus places all the focus on those expertly programmed, loose but driving drums.

On the flip, “Remember’ is a more light-footed groove that races along a slick bass line. Cosmic chords add some freakiness and the whole thing is kinetic and infectious.

Again displaying fine studio skills that result in grooves with real feelings, this one is sure to make a big impact.

This is another standout four track package of timeless house music from the ever exciting Robin Ball.
