Memory Box – DJ Pierre playing ‘A History of the 303’



Ever wondered what music was like when DJ Pierre created the Acid House sound in 1986? Well now’s your chance…Saturday July 25th DJ Pierre at Memory Box, Cafe 1001, Brick Lane, E1

“The beginning of Acid House begins with the rhythmic, manipulative and purposeful twisting of the knobs on the Roland TB-303. I think I can boldly say that was also the true beginning of the 303. Acid House made the 303 and vice versa. It’s evident in its rebirth via the Aira system. When we got to explore the original 303, I remember feeling dual emotions – somewhat like a kid would feel putting his finger in a cookie jar knowing he shouldn’t BUT he knows once he gets to that cookie – nothing else matters. I knew we [Phuture: Spanky and Herb J] were embarking on something different and it was weird! The sound coming out of the machine was weird, but we delved further and jammed for about an hour. We knew we were going outside the mainstream sound at the time but we went after that cookie. We were kids getting into that cookie Jar and we tasted the cookie once ‘Acid Tracks’ was done. It was amazing. The birth of Acid House…the birth of the 303.” DJ Pierre
