Sup podcast fam. This is a followup to the first BTM mix I did back in February. Again, the concept is to step away from the club and head back to the loft where you can hang out after a night of dancing. Enjoy.

Spread the word!
Having grown up surrounded by music from an early age, Roland began to collect records as diverse as 80's new wave, hip hop, disco, ska and reggae. He was introduced to the sounds of house music in the late 80's which led to many late-night adventures in Toronto's budding warehouse scene. This is when he became exposed to the freshest house tracks played by pioneers Dino & Terry, Peter & Tyrone, JMK as well as Paul E Lopes and Jason Palma with their Funk/Latin/Soul sounds. From that developed a fascination with DJ Culture along with a love of the early 90's works of Todd Terry, MAW, Lil Louis, Pal Joey, Murk, and labels such as Strictly Rhythm. Throughout the mid-90's, hip hop battle DJ's including Q-Bert, Roc Raider, Toronto's Turnstylez and Producer/DJ Serious made an important impression on Roland with respect to approaching music with a spontaneous and creative attitude. This is when he first began honing his skills as a DJ and upstart producer. In 1997, Roland was reintroduced to the house and party scene and made the transition to house DJ. He was hooked by the incredible energy of the dancefloor and the inspiring sets from DJ's as varied as Sneak, Derrick Carter, Derrick May, Jeff Mills, Richie Hawtin, Andy Weatherall, Mark Farina, Stacey Pullen, and many T-Dot locals including Mario J and Kenny Glasgow. Over the past 12 years, Roland has touched on the whole spectrum of 'house' music and developed his own unique and versatile style which is firmly planted in between the realms of house and techno. His passion for dancing is reflected during his energetic sets where funky and upbeat tracks always get the crowd grooving and screaming for more. In the past, Roland has rocked dancefloors at a number of clubs and lounges across the city including Eclipse, Mint, Alto Basso, Una Mas, Hotel, Kubo, a weekly residency at Aero, as well as various warehouse parties.
