Memento XSMacarena Club - Barcelona, Espanya
Every Monday at Macarena Club: Memento XS.
Memento was born in the far 2006 in the thick fog of the Pianura Padana area, between Mantua and Bologna which is worldwide famous not only for Tortellini and Parmesan but also for Techno Music and the deep style. A city that keeps always an eye on the first steps of the far Detroit. It was born from the encounter of two future great friends: Idriss D and Fabrizio Maurizi. The former is a Parisian DJ who fell in love with Italy and the latter is a tireless after hour DJ from Bologna.
Berlin and the minimal style showed their power during those years and our 2 cowboys decided to give their contribution to the scene creating partly for fun the label Memento.
But fun became suddenly serious: the first Fabrizio's release "Hasta la Baldoria Siempre" (under the pseudonym of Roger) quickly was at the top of the charts Decks and Beatport becoming soon a killer floor in Europe.
Techno sounds, irresistible funk with Fidel Castro's voice, it showed, well in advance of the modern styles, all the opportunities of this musical code. After a little while one of Fabrizio's dreams became true: his majesty Richie Hawtin called him and Fabrizio became to all intents and purposes one of the Minus artists.
But Memento project is far to be over!
Hailing from the island of Crete Mr. Roussos was influenced by his father’s record collection from his early years. He started collecting vinyl from the age of 14 and immediately got hooked to the blooming sound of early House & Techno that was being introduced to Europe at that period. At the age of 15 he played his records for the first time in front of an audience in an illegal warehouse party making a strong impression and gained recognition to the local scene. From that point on Dj’ing and record collecting has been his passion and addiction until the present day.
The next step was to promote the music that he embraced by organizing various mobile events during the 90′s resulting in earning the reputation as one of the key figures in the island’s dance music scene. It was a matter of time since he started to get noticed from clubs & promoters from other parts of Greece where he was invited to Dj for various events. From 2009 he was added as a resident Dj for the infamous Six D.O.G.S club in Athens. In 2012 he co – created the REVOLT! events & label company that managed to become one of Greece’s top underground music concepts. During all this time he has shared the decks with acclaimed artists such as: Daniel Bell, Nina Kraviz, Raresh,Thomas Melchior, Baby Ford, Martinez,Shonky,Praslea Valentino Kanzyani and more.
Mr. Roussos musical style can’t be labelled under a specific genre, he blends old and new in his unique way resulting in an eclectic mix with the finest selection house and techno has to offer.
