Roska joins us in San Francisco for the first time in over 4 years. A regular on Rinse FM since 2009, he's released records on labels such as Rinse, Tectonic, Numbers, Hotflush, and his own label Roska Kicks & Snares.
Roska is best known over the last decade for championing the UK Funky genre -- think of the lushness of soulful house, tweak it with African and Latin percussion in a dembow riddim, then top it off with R&B vocals. In the years since, his production and mixing style has evolved, as well as the genre as a whole, over time borrowing elements from grime, dubstep, house, and pretty much every corner of club-oriented music.
Through his RKS label and the RKS Dubz imprint, he's been early to release music from now-established DJs such as Doc Daneeka, Jamie George, Funkystepz, DJ MA1, J:KENZO, DJ Champion...and in more recent years has been releasing music from artists you might hear in a Bread FM mix, such as Majora, Dean Lyon, and Murder She Wrote.
It's an honor to be hosting him. We couldn't be more excited to bring him to San Francisco.
