Continuing its regular sonic memoirs of electronic music, Memory Box returns on Friday 9th October with house and techno innovator, Darren Emerson for a specially crafted ‘Influences’ set.
“I’m really looking forward to playing at memory Box on October 9th. It will give me a chance to play tracks that influenced me through the years. From old Electro, Chicago House, Acid House, Detroit Techno, New Beat, some Disco GO GO… Anything goes. It will give me a chance to dust of some of my old vinyl and reminisce the old days. My memory isn’t as good these days so playing at Memory box and going through some old trax might help jog it.” – Darren Emerson.
Techno innovator – Underworld originator – Underwater and Detone label boss – Darren Emerson has remained at the forefront of electronica, techno and house across the last three decades for good reason. Solidly consistent productions, awe inspiring DJ performances and an unquenchable thirst for the new and interesting everywhere it can be found is an irresistible and intoxicating brew.
A true pioneer, Darren is one of the most influential figures in dance music, having collaborated with artists as diverse as Sasha, Depeche Mode, Bjork and The Chemical Brothers. Indeed from the age of 18 he was already on his way to creating platinum million selling albums and singles with Underworld followed by some of the most successful DJ mix compilations of all time with Global Underground, Cream, Underwater and more. This is an influences set not to be missed.
Joining Darren on the night is one of the most exciting UK electronic artists of recent time, Saytek will bridge the gap between old and new with a special Memory Box “Live Hardware Show” of Acid, Detroit and Chicago inspired material.
Saytek has steadily grown over the last few years to become one of the scene’s most in-demand live acts. From playing the Space Ibiza closing party to fabric to rocking Tresor to his former residency with Zoo Project, he has garnered acclaim the world over. His live shows are truly live, featuring a myriad of synths, samplers, analog gear, FXs and controllers which ensure a much more engrossing performance than someone simply clicking on a laptop.
And weaving the whole night together with his acid house treats is Memory Box originator, Robin Ball.
Memory Box presents Darren Emerson [Influences Set] with Darren Emerson, Saytek and Robin Ball takes place at Bussey Building, 133 Rye Lane; Peckham; London SE15 4ST on Saturday 22nd August from 10pm till 5am.
