One day out to the premiere night of Bubblin with Roska!!!

The Portland Mercury shows us some Up and Coming love in their April 15-22, 2010 issue:

Local DJs Lincolnup and Ben Tactic are adding to your weekend dancing options with a new monthly party focused on garage, UK funky, bashment, tropical, house, and dubstep. They’re going big on the inaugural event and importing London’s Roska for the evening. A producer for notable London pirate station rinse.fm, Roska has been steadily gaining international notoriety and should be able to easily cover the laundry list of aforementioned genres, and then some. This includes his mega-sexy collaboration with house vocalist Jamie George (“Love 2 Nite”), the deep Caribbean beat and addictive little vibrating noise of the directionless “Squark,” and “Tomorrow is Today,” which smashes together two-step and old skool electro with a bit of irony. Point is, the Roska is talented, versatile and doesn’t take himself too seriously—all qualities that point to a DJ who can make people fully cut loose on a dance floor. AVA HEGEDUS

Ben and I have wrapped up Bubblin Vol. 1 Mix and it’s a grown and sexy beast! Get yourself to Bubblin on the early side and cop a FREE tracked CD, we’re giving 40 away!

You need this mix in your life.

See you @ Bubblin!

Roska Remixes DJ Naughty – Free Download

Posted in Dj Naughty, FACT Magazine, Rinse, Roska on April 13, 2010 by lincolnup

From FACT Magazine:

Roska is, officially, hot property.

Since the slew of EPs that had us and more raving about the UK Funky producer in 2008, he’s gone from strength to strength, touring America, and this month releasing his debut album, Roska on Rinse FM’s label. If you go down to Norwood on a Sunday afternoon, you’re at least 60/40 in favour of hearing local kids shout “Roska, Roska, Roska” in tribute to their hero. By our calculations, come the second album he’ll be huge enough to turn on the Christmas lights on Oxford St.

Pretty soon he’ll be releasing an EP by fellow Funky house upstart DJ Naughty on his Roska Kicks & Snares label; you can download Roska’s mix of Naughty’s ‘Quicktime’ below.

Go get this massive track here, it’s only available for five more days.
