Another year has zoomed past as it’s that time again for the annual Retox Halloween party, and we have a very very special guest joining us for this one…
Best known for producing one of dance music’s biggest records, ‘Knights Of The Jaguar EP’, along with his mesmerising dj skills, very special guest DJ Rolando will be making a rare London appearance at Sosho!
Hailing from Detroit/USA, Rolando’s roots were drenched in his surrounding Latin American rhythms and percussions that dominated the Hispanic district where he grew up. During the mid eighties his ears caught the radical and ground breaking sounds from pioneering dj’s such as Jeff Mills, and turned his attention to this new music form. He was eventually introduced to Mad Mike Banks and was promptly asked to join the enigmatic Underground Residence crew.
After building his reputation in the US, overseas opportunities soon arose with his now infamous speedy rambunctious turntable proficiency. Skillfully meandering through house, deep soul, electro, techno and the classics, he has earned a podium position within the house and techno elite as one of the most creative talents.
His production forays were kick started with the Aztec Mystic EP on UR with several releases following leading up to one of dance music’s biggest hits, Jaguar. Crossing genres and both the underground and overground, this release helped cement Rolando’s reputation as a master of his art. Various releases and remixes followed on UR as well as on the Los Hermanos, 430West, Kling Klang, Soma, Logistic, and Rush Hour labels, all leading up to his latest project, Cross Roads, a new platform to introduce his work before signing over to other labels.
We’re very excited about having him along this Sunday night for what promises to be a special night, so hope you can join us and give him a warm welcome!
We have more too...

Doors open at 9pm and the party goes through till 6am.
The venue will be dressed up with hallowed décor, please dress creatively for this one!
