Beats, 2008 has been a huge year and '09 looks to be even bigger. "Its
been Mental 2008, I think I have had like 4 weekends off this year...
but hey roll on '09 lets do 52 out of 52"
2009 brought on a new opportunity to reach out and bring Drum and Bass to the Area. Rolex hosts a weekly radio show IN:MOTION with DJ's High Spped Dubbing, Advokit and Vhari. "Its a culmination of the sounds that got us loving this sound, sounds were feeling and vibes were producing and its a great show to be part of, the crew are first class"
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"

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 2014 progresses.
