THE TUESDAY CLUB
***TRANSITION FESTIVAL LAUNCH PARTY***
TUESDAY 10TH NOVEMBER
11PM – 3AM
ROSKA (RINSE FM)
TTC is keeping it funky this week with one of the UK Funky House scene’s most prominent figures, Roska
Even among his contemporaries, Roska stands out as a unique proposition. His music – an explosive cocktail of swung house percussion, blocky melodies and body-battering sub-bass – is immediately distinctive, marked out both by his own production hallmarks and the cheeky ‘Roska!’ vocal motif that peppers his tracks.
Roska started his Rinse FM show in 2009. This proved to be the catalyst his music needed to trigger off the next phase in its development. With a regular audience exposed to his own new tracks as well as those he was supporting, he began to carve out an increasingly unique and playful take on house music, blending cartoonish melodic motifs with sucker punch sub-bass and sultry, swung rhythms. In the time period since, his show has acted as a vital platform both for his own new tracks and that of the artists whose music he is supporting and DJing.
So as what was once called ‘funky’ drained out of the clubs, and its originators started making and playing different sounds, Roska’s music has continued to explore its own world. 2010’s Rinse Presents: Roska showed off the range of his sound, with vocal anthems like the Jamie George-featuring ‘Wonderful Day’ sitting comfortably alongside wild club tracks like ‘Squark’ and ‘Hey Cutie’. He continued with a string of 12″s for labels like Hotflush, Numbers and Tectonic, collaborations with sub-heavy explorers Untold and Pinch, and remixes for names as varied as Four Tet, Mosca, Modeselektor and Katy B. Most recently, Rinse Presents: Roska 2 gathered together all of those ideas into his most ambitious statement to date.
Thoughout that time his reputation as a formidable DJ has continued to rise, bolstered by his ongoing weekly Rinse FM appearances. In 2012 he played at a string of major UK and European festivals, including Lovebox, Global Gathering, Camden Crawl, Outlook, Boomtown Fair and Manchester’s Pangaea Festival. His Roska Kicks & Snares label has grown from an early outlet for his own tracks into a platform to release music by friends and likeminded producers, including Champion, Doc Daneeka and Shox. He was interviewed for a Red Bull Music Academy lecture in 2010 and in the time period since then has played for them and made lecture appearances across Europe.
He’s never far from the darkened club spaces where he made his name, though, regularly playing incendiary sets in packed basements around the UK – and always maintaining the immediacy and physical impact that’s defined his music from the very start.
