Rocco Rodamaal

Last Night a DJ Saved My Life

 

A DJ for 20 years plus, Rocco Rodamaal’s career started in small underground Techno influenced clubs in Lyons, France, where he learned his trade alongside DJs like Laurent Garnier, Carl Cox, Louie Vega and DJ Deep.

 

Rocco teamed up with Alex Santos and Manoo in 2001 to form Rodamaal. The group quickly got a lot of attention and caught the ear of Ben Watt (from Everything But The Girl) who was starting his Buzzin’ Fly label at the time. Various EPs and singles for Buzzin’ Fly followed but it is the ‘Insomnia’ single - remixed by Âme - that is definitively the biggest single for Rodamaal, and it remains a Deep House classic.

 

Rodamaal Rocco also released solo projects on various labels including Freerange, Defected, MN2S, Real Tone. Rocco has developed a huge following in South Africa.
