I love classic r&b, hip hop, jazz and classic rock. My early musical influence was my dad. He had a major record collection and by the age of 5, I was working his reel to reel machine. My adult musical influences are A Tribe Called Quest, Q-Tip, Pete Rock, DJ Scratch, Run DMC, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Bob James, Grover Washington Jr, Joe Sample, DJ Premier, DJ Jazzy Jeff, De La Soul, Erick Sermon, Mobb Deep, Mary J. Blige, P. Diddy and Anita Baker, just to name few. I enjoy music with soul and meaning, therefore I tend to create edited or clean mixes as such so they can be played anywhere. I rock clubs occasionally, stay busy with weddings, private functions and mix tapes. You can check out some of my mixes on www.mixcrate.com/djrolo. I’m also Co-Owner of Works of Art Entertainment.
