**ROSKA** (Rinse FM/Kicks & Snares)
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.
2013 was Roska's biggest year to date, finding him busy touring and DJing across the globe, playing new music on his weekly show on Rinse FM, and releasing a formidable new full -length for Rinse, Rinse Presents: Roska 2.
Featuring vocals from, among others, Sweetie Irie and Mz Bratt, and collaborations with Swindle and Funtcase, it was a set of tracks based in house but stretching far and wide for inspiration, twisting grime, dubstep and garage to
suit his own vision.
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.
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, and holds a Roska Presents residency every four months at London's Fabric. 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.
**DISMANTLE** (Rinse FM/Digital Soundboy)
Brighton Based Will Knighton has now laid a solid footprint in the soil of the UK Bass scene. Since his massive release ʻComputationʼ and the acclaimed follow up ʻWarp EPʼ on Shy FXʼs Digital Soundboy, Dismantle has continued to garner massive support from the likes of Annie Mac, Diplo, Skream, Zane Lowe, Mista Jam, Toddla T and all the key taste makers.
As well as his releases on Soundboy, Will has turned out remixes for A-Trak & Zinc, No Doubt with Major Lazer, Sub Focus and Toddla T to name a few and has continued to blur the line between Dance music genres.
2013 took Dismantle on a whirlwind round-the-world tour with Boxfresh and Vice Magazine to filmʻBefore Monday Comesʼ, taking in the night life of Stockholm, Berlin, Beijing, New York and London. Either side of this Will took to the road for a huge run of summer shows and festivals including Glastonbury, Hideout, Global Gathering, Tomorrowland, SW4, Pukkelpop and Bestival, cementing himself as a firm festival favourite
Already a firm favourite with the likes of Diplo, Annie Mac, Skrillex, Mista Jam and Skream, 2014 has seen Will remix for label buddy Jakwob and continue his residency on Rinse FM.
Heʼs is now busy working on his first compilation album, with new music and somevery special exclusives.
