ROCKO GARONI

Maybe it was coincidence that northern light Ocko Garen aka Rocko Garoni turned on the radio 25 years ago - but you shouldn’t bet on it. The 90s and the beginning of rave culture were magnetic for him and crucial to the start of his musical career.

 

Rocko has left his mark on almost every puzzle piece in the scene – from being part of Zucker-Club in Bremen, an organizer of illegal warehouse / outdoor raves, to festival stages (Räuberhöhle / Fusion Festival) and being a label manager.

 

Rocko Garoni's sound is drifty, edgy and always melds his DnB past and Techno future. Using his many years of experience, he is always testing out musical boundaries. His sets sound like dystopian sunrises, where, from Germany to Israel, Netherlands or Brazil, no leg stands still.

 

His first EP on Pan-Pot's label Second State in 2018, the Detection EP, including a remix of Spanish acid hero Regal, was a great success. One year later he follows up with his second EP on the Label, including a remix of Marco Bailey. Other releases came out on Advanced Music, Elektrotribe and Manual Music.
