rrotik cut his teeth producing electro and dubstep tracks, but that’s all in the past.
Opting to take a different musical path, the Brazilian DJ/producer is now focused on techno and house, and the shift in direction is paying off in dividends. His productions have won favor of top jocks like Claude VonStroke, Low Steppa, and Oliver Heldens, and he’s bringing new flavors with each release.
After dropping his re-rub of Feder’s “Back For More” feat. Daecolm and unleashing “Boom, Boom, Boom” with Felix, rrotik’s fiery collaboration with UK producer LiTek came to light in the form of “Faasti,” a deep, dark dance floor cut released on Tough Love‘s unstoppable Get Twisted Records. Released on June 2, the track has already won a place in DJ sets from globetrotting jocks including Dantiez Saunderson, Tom Novy, and Golf Clap.
As rrotik prepares for a busy summer, we asked him to share five new tracks he currently can’t live without.
POOLCLVB – “Waiting For You” (Walker & Royce)
I love pretty much everything these guys put out. But this one has a deeper and darker vibe which makes this a great track for many settings.
Kisch feat. Mari M – “Wrap Me Up” (Original Mix)
This one features a simple and very effective groove, catchy vocals and it’s awesome to contrast with the stuff I usually spin.
Indian Summer – “Love Like This” (Kry Wolf Remix)
Absolutely love the soulful vocals and again a very effective groove.
Todd Terry & DJ S.K.T – “Nite & Day”
This one’s got a certain retro vibe and a nice chord progression. Catchy, yet serious.
Murder He Wrote – “Watch The Tempo”
This one slows down to a hip-hop beat and goes back to a infectious and wubsy/wobbly groove.
