Robin Ball ’ s Memory Box builds on the success of early
releases with a big new outing that features two of his
own tracks and one from the legendary Luke Vibert.
Memory Box is a party that has hosted Derrick Carer, Trevino and A Guy Called Gerald among others, and is a
place to hear proper acid house. Ball himself is a master
of the genre and most often released on his own
Groovepressure label, having been making music since his
teens. Now his latest labour of love is once again reaffirming his status as a vital voice in the UK scene.
Luke Vibert has a rich history that makes him a key part of
the UK’s dance counterculture over the last 30 years. His
always animated music is wild and inventive and comes on
greats like Mo Wax, Warp and Planet Mu. Here he offers‘X to C’, a wild melange of warped synth tones, grizzled
basslines & acid flashes. It will twist and turn the dance
floor inside out. Robin Ball’s excellent‘ Gripper’ is a
corrugated bit of electric house music that never sits still.
Pensive pads in the background are off set by a busy lead
synth line and old school stabs that make it a perfectly
timeless, energetic fusion of moods and grooves.
Lastly, Ball serves up ‘ The Edge,’ a brilliantly brash cut
with stepping acid sequences, raw drum work and warped
bass that distills decades of UK music into one essential
