Rolex would have to be one of New Zealands forefront Clubnight MC's.
With a brief hiatus from the mic Rolex came back full swing in 2013, holding it down with the new order of Dj's on the circuit. "fuck I didnt even know what a Diplo was, I turned up to a club and the music was bass heavy, I fell in love again"
With this Love Basswarfare was born. Bass Warfare consists of Rolex, Bevan Nichols with two gorgeous, trained dancers Lil B & Big B. "We encapsulate the senses - Bevan drops track after track, I just do what ever it is I do, and the girls - well, you just better turn up and see what we get up to"
2014 has to date seen Rolex MC alongside not only the best of the local scene but some memorable sets to date with the likes of Krafty Kuts, Danny Byrd, TAI and TREi.
You will find Rolex as guest host on the Something Real Radio show on www.noizeradio.co.nz Monday nights and also on his own 'Borrowed Time' monthly spot on the the same station.
2015 Saw guest MC Sessions suporting Wilkinson, Flowidus, A Sides, and State of Mind on some heavy Drum and Bass tips and A-Tonez and Spenda C on the variable bass assaults these two Aussie Legends throw down. Then there were the legendary RInse Sets of Beachcomber Island Fiji with the Troskey, Stack and Piece and Eastern Blok, Bula Fiji for the Lit as Fuck Party - you know
2016 Saw Releases for MC Rolex on Broken Audio's Project Mohawke - A track called "Too Late" with Medium on the Beats. The lyrics were penned by Rolex in the flavour of an educative bit - "Kinda making awares the things you say to people that cant be taken back"

MC Unknown (Canada),
no Genre left untouched... Drum and Bass, Breaks, House, and Hip Hop,
Rolex brings an extra element, that can only be described as harmonious.
"I have always really loved listening to music, and why should that be
any different when I'm playing a gig... I work in an equilibrium with my
chosen DJ, allowing a progression of the senses, kinda like LSD really,
just makes a good thing better"
Ask Rolex why he does what he
does and you will easily see it is out of pure enjoyment for the
creation of music. With recordings in the process watch for more of
Rolex as 2017 progresses.
