This week’s Sound System will feature long-time Rinse FM affiliate Roska. Sound System has been smashing it for a few weeks now at Rhino on Thursdays and past guests include Hannah Wants, Damon C Scott, and Cause & Affect. They’re set for another bass-infused party this week with Roska, George Francis & Jakuze, and more to be confirmed.
TICKETS: PAY ON THE DOOR
Roska first made a name for himself as part of the UK funky scene, with a string of 12″s on his Roska Kicks & Snares label marking out his swung, packs-a-punch take on house music as a force to be reckoned with (his mega-distinctive namedrop “Roska, Roska, Roska…” definitely helps). In 2009, he started a weekly show on Rinse FM which opened the doors for a series of EPs and two full-length albums for their label, which featured collaborations with vocalists like Mz Bratt and regular partner Jamie George that demonstrated Roska’s knack for solid UK inner-city pop music.
