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, irresistibly 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!
