Re: DJ Rolando

Detroit Techno I'd hazard a guess. Think Jeff Mills, Underground Resistance that sort of malarky.

Re: DJ Rolando

Born in the 1970's in southwest Detroit, he grew up in the Hispanic district heavily influenced by his cultural latin rhythms and percussion. Encouraged from an early age by his musician father, he pursued his own interest in music and became well known and respected within the community. It was later when he heard Jeff Mills as "The Wizard" that he discovered the innovative sounds of techno. Through a mutual friend he was introduced to "Mad" Mike Banks and promptly became a member of the enigmatic Underground Resistance crew. Soon his first opportunity came to cross the Atlantic and his speedy proficiency on the turntables wowed audiences worldwide earning him respect and notoriety within the industry as a whole. Jaguar although not Rolando's first release on UR turned perceptions of techno on their head, breaking into other genres of dance music and becoming a classic in the boxes of dj's such as Tenaglia, Morillo, Oakenfold and Giles Peterson. With the ensuing battle against corporate goliath's Sony - the battle was morally won by sheer determination of the small independent label and the steadfast support of fans worlwide. Now alongside partner Gerald Mitchell the launch of a new label "Los Hermanos" Rolando has entered an exciting new phase as a producer and remixer.

Re: DJ Rolando

go go go - seen Rolando play at Pressure several times and he rocks.   Not savage driving techno like Jeff Mills nor abstract beats as preferred by Plastikman. Think Knights of the Jaguar and David Alvarado. If you've ever heard Samuel L Sessions 'Merengue' then you're on the right path or the Freelance Science disc from the DMC SLAM CD.
