Roukin  is a truly exciting and fresh talent in the House Music scene. In his short time in LA he has become resident DJ at Avalon, Hollywood. whilst also establishing himself firmly on the undergound scene. He has a tribe of fans built initially from his acting career, who are now enjoying his original passion…

2019 was quite the ride for DJ/ Producer Roukin. His release Game Plan , a collaboration with Hobbs (UK) on Reptile Dysfunction rose to #5 in the Traxsource Nu Disco chart on. His debut EP Walk With Me released on the Los Angeles label Understated Recordings and the follow up with Hobbs (UK) on Black Soul Music,with the EP Best Of You. Forthcoming are Pick and Click on Understated and Soirée on Boost Weapons.

Roukin has an encyclopedic knowledge of House Music having been playing since 1994 when he  first touched a Technics 1200 turntable in a garage in Southport, UK. He was hooked by the early sounds of warehouse parties brought home by his older brothers and weekly visits to Cream, Liverpool, Sankeys Manchester and many other UK clubs throughout the 90s. In the early 2000’s he played up and down the UK including his own party, Fluid at The Room in Hull.

Always evolving and pushing out of his comfort zone he curates a sound of punchy, groove driven house music spanning Disco, Jackin House through to Tech House. His sets on 4 decks are  packed full of his own self produced loops and accapellas creating a sound all of his own. In the last two years alone he has played with the likes of Erik Morillo, Doorly, Eelke Kleijn, Hernan Cattaneo, EDX, Heidi Lawden, Neelix, Paul Johnson, Monki, Oliver Dollar to name but a few. This year he returned for a third time to one of his favourite clubs in the US, Flash in DC.

Roukin is host of  the official podcast for Understated Recordings, LA Underground, recorded in Los Angeles.

2020 has lots in store. Standby for a flurry of releases and more epic sessions on the dance floor…
