"90's kid that was obsessed with house while it was still on cassettes" - Dj Roque

As someone who is now becoming more established in the game, what was the process like to get to this point?

Being versatile is the key but most of all it is producing music that you love and stay humble. Don't force to go with what is selling, be patient - with passion comes great music always.



It has been a minute since you released "The Afrodesia" - take us through the timeline from concept until now?

The Afrodesia is songs I made before 2012 with a little bit of skill and experience I have




Hip Hop always has a Top 10 list every year. Do you think house Dj's / Producers need one too - and why?

House is our culure in S.A. It shouldn't be a question - we are the number one supporters in the world we cannot be comparing.


Let's take it into a more lighter note. A while ago you made a Facebook post about amapiano, that was that about? * laughs *

The thing is big dj's will never address whack music because it makes them look like haters and not good for their image. Amapiano is piano, not house - that's where it ends. They all have the same mood. House music is all about different events, whether you are clubbing, driving, chilling or just having something soulful, you can't have the same mood all your life.

Can you give us a more detailed insight into DEEP HOUSE POLICE?

I was helped out by Tim White to set up DEEP HOUSE POLICE because of the fact I had so much music to release so DHP is just a platform for me to release my own music whenever I want. I am not signing anyone at the moment.





Your latest offering "Four To The Floor part 3" - can you please go into detail in regards to it?

Four To The Floor part 3 is a way for me to show my fans I have grown and what I can do as time goes by. The EP will always be released to part 100 if it happens. It's all about dance floor tunes and just great house music.




How would you explain your sound to someone who is not familiar with your music?

I praise the bassline!!! All house music heads love a good bassline I think I have paved a way for my fellow mates with spirit speaks back in 2012. I personally think I would say it's jazz music with a diffent drum work and speed.


Who is your dream collaboration - Locally & abroad and why?

My biggest dream, being signed to House Afrika, abroad is Frankie Feliciano.



What's a typical day in the life of Roque?

I make music everyday, weekends head to our studios to record if I have to.





"Be patient - with passion comes great music"



What can your fans expect from you in the near future?

Big songs with big artist in our country and I am releasing an album with House Afrika next year early, not sure when.
