ROCCO aka SVEN-R-G started his career as resident-dj ten years ago at the largest club in the north of Germany ;the “ziegelei” located just a few miles away from the gates of Hamburg.

When he started his own productions his first projects were released by labels like edm and kontor but his career as producer really started off when he teamed up with his partner BASS-T and slobodan petrovic aka PULSEDRIVER for the just founded aqualoop records label at the beginning of the year 2000. His first release under the new found name ROCCO was BACK IN TOWN AGAIN which entered the dance charts and filled the dance floors of Germany. Soon after, the second ROCCO;“EVERYBODY” was released and stormed the German sales charts to peak in March 2002 at pos.:9 with 130.000 sales alone in Germany and Austria. this was the start for the international career of the now 27 years old with releases in nearly every country like Japan, Canada, Australia, Taiwan, France, Spain ,Italy, Scandinavia ,eastern Europe and so on.

but not alone with his other productions like for the Spanish star dj; ABEL RAMOS from Barcelona; which entered the music week UK dance charts and under his other name SVEN-R-G he succeed on the dance floors and in the charts but now his skills as remixer were asked for the likes of MARK ´OH, GROOVE COVERAGE, DRUNKEN MUNKY and many more. In the meantime ROCCO finished his residency after ten years to play only one Saturday per month at his former club to find time to follow the demands of clubs all over Germany and in Austria, Spain and the Netherlands. when “DROP THE BASS” the third ROCCO output were released on 12" some weeks ago it rushed into the German dance charts to reach finally pos. 5 without even any promotional mail out to any dj. Soon after that DROP THE BASS peaked in all German dance charts like odc, gdp, dmc etc on the first position.

Two weeks ago DROP THE BASS entered the single sales charts at a very healthy pos. 18 as third highest entry after the new releases of Madonna and Phil Collins and at present time it looks like the third week in the top twenty. The fourth single release will be out beginning of 2003 with an album to follow.
