Roska returns to Tectonic following his collaborative track ‘Paranormal Activity’ that he made with Pinch last year.
For his first solo outing on Tectonic Roska comes with 2 tracks of ice cold minimalism, utilising his brittle UK funky sound palette to create two rolling, dancefloor friendly tracks. Opening the A side with a stepping 130 bpm cut ‘Blurry’ and the Dubstep compatible ‘Spearhead’ on the flip.
1. Did you pick your artist name ‘Roska’ because it’s really hard to rhyme anything with it? Is this a tactic to avoid lazy MCs linking you to words you have no desire to be associated with?
Come to think of it, it isn’t a easy name to rhyme with. Wiley mentioned my name in one of his freestyles and he managed it.
2. Back in the day – you used to be ‘MC Mentor’ and later moved to production. What was your best catch phrase pon tha mic? What was the phrase you over-used most?
Ah haha. Too cringe-worthy to place up on here.
3. Your earlier releases have been associated with the UK Funky scene. Do you still feel a part of that now?
Sometimes I do when I think of the good times but other than that I think the love has been lost.
4. What’s your favourite tipple and has it changed in the last 5 years?
My personal fav is Corvoisier VSOP but slowly been temped by white spirits the last couple including Absolut Vodka Citron which seems to leave me with no hangover the next day…
