Roska, a former MC turned producer is THE star name in the fast rising funky scene. Clubbers sick of dubstep’s bass wars and grime’s continual macho posing have begun flocking to hear Roska’s production. Bass heavy but with a cheeky sense of humour, his stripped-down style is one of the hottest new trends in electronic music.

“Inspired by all the good stuff – Slimzee, Horsepower, Dilla, El-B, MJ Cole – Brackles is probably our favourite DJ around right now, and basically blew our minds last time he played FWD>>. With a sound a million miles away from the blokey, sludgy going rate of dubstep, this kid effortlessly incorporates funky, rolling grime, vintage 2-step and bassline into his impossibly energetic, elastic sets” FACT MAGAZINE

Sub FM regular and Night Slugs label artist Mosca is best known for ‘Square One’, a UK house anthem that takes in tribal percussion, Karizma-like horns, the longing bass of Joy Orbison, cut-up R’n'B and patois samples – so basically everything good in music ever. Getting played out by Kode9, Roska, Untold and many more, firmly placed his name on the map and raised awareness for this up-and-coming producer from London. But that’s only half the story: check new productions like ‘Gold Bricks’ or ‘I See You’ and you’ll realize that you’re not dealing with a flash in the pan, but one of UK’s brightest young talents.
