"Psychedelic re-loves, autobahn excursions and spacey remixes have been the trademark of Mojo’s productions as he takes the edits phenomenon to a new level. Beyond this, his D.J sets are nothing short of fantastical"- Resident Advisor
Equally at home with down tempo soundscapes or dance floor electronica.
RocknRolla Sound System
RocknRolla Soundsystem does edits.
Quite good ones actually.
Since 2012 the Dutch collective produces reworks
of all things groovy and they have become a household name in the global edit scene. Besides usual suspect genres, a distinctive thing is that RocknRolla Soundsystem doesn’t back out of taking on editing less predictable music like singer songwriter tunes, rock, reggae, jazz or blues.
Their released work on Island / Universal, Katakana Edits, Springbok Records, Act of Sedition, Vehicle and Alpaca Edits is critically acclaimed and praised by big radio names like Craig Charles, Gilles Peterson & Jeremy Sole (KCRW USA).
Originating from the house and techno scene in the city
of Groningen, RocknRolla Soundsystem was founded
on the very simple idea of wanting to be able to play more groove infused danceable versions of authentic tunes.
Each member of the crew owns an extensive music collection filled with material from the early sixties until present day to which RocknRolla Soundsystem turns when selecting material for new remix projects.
Productions never sound overhyped or overproduced.
Their authentic approach of adding subtle groove, bass lines, and additional instrumentation has resulted in a solid catalog of over 40 songs.
Their most notable tracks easily surpass 200.000 plays on Soundcloud, Youtube, and other online platforms.
