Artist: Roller Funk aka Dj Roid.
Real name: Roland Middelburg, Amsterdam NL.
Born and raised in Amsterdam , Roland Middelburg ( Roller Funk aka Dj Roid ) started collecting vinyl records during the early nineties. He grew up in a vibrant and diverse music scene, which led to a growing record collection. From oldschool early rave, house, techno to trance and acid, he always tried to mix different styles into one dj set, strictly on vinyl. His passion for mixing on vinyl and collecting records became even bigger when he saw Theo Parrish spinning at the Paradiso disco 3000 parties. That inspired him to start digging old funk / soul, boogie / italo, afro and disco records from all over the world. And together with his dj partner Efrain Garcia ( Dj Mr E ), they played at several small vinyl friendly venues in Amsterdam. During those years his style changed into a mix of soulful, groovy / funky, disco / house music, with lots of Detroit and acid influences from his early days.
Roland’s main focus nowadays is to create and produce music on hardware equipment for his future live set. He is also hosting two different radio programmes on DHC FM: Trinity Electronic Chronic, with dj Rossa ( Wieteke van Bladel ) and Amsterdam Selected, Both radio shows are mainly focussing on different dance genres and a diverse range in musical choice.
