Thorough. Meticulous. Fun. Those may not sound like they go together, but that sums up New York City’s own Sound Stylist Roland, DJ Rok One. Roland has been making waves in the NYC nightlife scene for years. A Gotham native, he has been absorbing trends and styles in nightlife music and art for decades. A former MC and visual artist, Roland knows what it takes to create and control the vibe of any event. Over the years, this old soul with a childlike heart has played all over the US and Europe, including NYC hotspots like The Woods, Kinfolk, Down & Derby Roller Disco, The Freehold, and the legendary Studio B (RIP) in Brooklyn.
When you experience his sets, you can truly feel that he cares and that’s exactly the vibe that he wants to give. When he isn’t making people move, Roland keeps a busy schedule as a collaborator on the official Rubble Kings mixtape, one half of the duo Black Russian, and the Creative Director/Event Coordinator at Plant Music. Roland is NYC to the core, but don’t let his tough exterior fool you. He’s a real gem who loves spending time with his dog, creating new tracks, and dishing out wit with his signature dry humor.
