Responsible for a chain of colossal releases on significant labels such as Digital Soundboy, Renegade Hardware, Critical and Darkestral at the beginning stages of his career, Rockwell picked up Single of the Month awards numerous times in succession for every solo record released. He showed true samurai spirit with his debut 12” on Shogun, 'Full Circle' b/w 'My War', which tore up dancefloors all over the world and set the standard for not only this young star but fellow producers alike. His second release, ‘DJ Friendly Unit Shifter’ b/w ‘Fakin’ Jacks’, highlights sonic supremacy – ‘Fakin’ Jacks’ is compiled of over one hundred tracks of intricate percussion.
Rockwell’s productions pay particular attention to detail; painstakingly well-constructed and beautifully, thoughtfully mastered. Each track is meticulously arranged to perfection, a signature attribute to this refreshing producer’s ethos. The infectious force to which his tunes manifest on the dancefloor, coupled with the ease of listening away from the clubs, is testament to the extraordinary sonic quality of Rockwell’s music.
With remixes commissioned for DJ Shadow, Cash Money, Jose James and support from the likes of Gilles Peterson, he is leaving a unique imprint in & leading a movement striving for, thought-provoking, artistic and riveting electronic music. This fresh, forward-thinking approach is one that sits perfectly alongside the rest of the Shogun elite: Alix Perez, Spectrasoul, Icicle, K-Tee and, of course, Friction.
