Memnok (AKA Jeremy Brown) born August, 1973. He began experimenting at an early age with sound. “I remember at a very young age trying to get lower notes out of our piano.” Growing up around many horror and sci-fi films. He always felt at home with anything dark and was always drawn toward synthetic sound. He grew up in Muskegon, Mi and at the time with no internet he had little influence. It wasn't until the mid 90's were he was finally introduced to techno music. He made regular trips to Grand Rapids, buying and mixing records from artists like Adam Beyer, Cari Lekebusch, Henrik B , and Chris Liebing. Around the year 2003 he was introduced to minimal. He purchased Jabberjaw – Girlfriend and was hooked. “I was instantly captivated, buying stuff from Dimbiman, Pantytec, Hawtin, Baby Ford and later Gaiser. I loved mixing this music, it just seemed like the next obvious step”. In 2007 his brother passed away. “I made a promise right then and there that I would dedicate my life to music. My brothers life's pursuit was music and now I make it mine. ” He moved to Grand Rapids, Mi in 2008 and in early 2009 he started the project Memnok. He has been a part of releases on distinguished labels such as Der Hut, Android Musiq, and Amazone etc.

In April of 2010, he along with his friend Duky formed the label Fourth Kind, which has had a string of successful releases. Presently he is working on launching his new label “HEX”. “I am hoping in time this will become more than just a label. I am collectively working in my opinion with some of the best dark up and coming artists in the scene”. HEX will be releasing digitally later this year with plans to add vinyl.
