Featured Guest

Our guest today is Rookley. A name that came onto my radar last year through his album Playground. It was one of my favourite releases of 2022, and is an album that bass heavy breaks, stirring sound design, clanky 2 step, and cold industrial. Which, ticks a lot of boxes for me I’ll be honest.

As an artist he’s one that wants to keep the anonymity intact. Letting his music do that talking. Based in Berlin, he grew up in Italy before moving to New York in his early 20s.
