As determined as his name is commanding, ‘Roon’ is an exciting by-product of the recent surge in Holland’s underground scene.
Joining a new and unassailable breed of intrinsically driven minimal house and deep tech producers, alias Roon is rising gradually and reassuringly throughout the ranks of Europe’s future generation of underground electronic musicians.
Hailing from the picturesque city of Haarlem, just outside of Amsterdam, and aged just 22 years young, Roon portrays all the hallmarks of a musical Prodigy in the making. That said, it’s no surprise then that he has already performed at some of Europe’s most revered underground clubs, including Sankeys Ibiza, Gewolbe in Cologne, Foyer in Düsseldorf, Sugar Factory in Amsterdam and Rotterdam ‘s Toffler Club.
Whilst he still remains in the infancy of what promises to be an exciting and illustrious career in the industry, ‘Roon’ has already drawn attention from one of London’s leading underground parties and label imprints, ‘Fuse’. With his latest collaboration with P Jones ‘Gida’ recently signed and due for release on Fuse’s sub-label ‘Infuse’ in late 2013, ‘Roon’ has entered the production market as he means to go-on, clearly illustrating that he possesses the necessary minerals to ‘mix-it’ with the very best.
Describing his refined sound as ‘a fusion of minimalistic, atmospheric and thought provoking grooves’, Roon also claims two solid tracks produced together with P Jones under his belt ‘Dor’ and ‘Feel Like’, which were released on ‘Moral Fiber Records’ and ‘Dorcas Records’ VA’s in 2012 and 2013 respectively. These early productions both enjoyed full support from Roon’s personal inspirations tINI, Enzo Siragusa, Seb Zito Yaya and Rich NxT, and are still navigating their way onto many a credible playlist to this very day.
An official member of Amsterdam based label ‘Karton’, ‘Roon’ has also become a regular fixture on the label’s showcases since its inception in 2011. Forging a close friendship with label owners P.Jones (Draft Records/Baile Musik/Earlydub Records) and David van Bilderbeek, this affiliation has definitely aided ‘Roon’ with his maturity and evolution as both a rounded DJ and budding producer.
Further influenced by the persuasive sounds of ‘Perlon’, ‘Amphia’, and Dutch label ‘Dialegestai Music’, the foundations have been firmly laid in place for this determined, diligent and sincere artist to progress onto the next phase of his musical conquest.
