Rossko is the epitome of a real DJ's DJ. Born and raised in Essex, the former professional footballer was a latecomer to the mixing game, first picking up a pair of headphones as a way to compensate for the loss of sport in his life. Since then, his ascent through London's underground ranks has been steady to say the least, cutting his teeth behind the decks of practically all the capital's top afterhours spots. His residencies for Lost Souls at the infamous Public Life club, and then more recently for Cerca Trova, propelled Rossko forward and onto performances at every big club in the city and beyond, including Fabric, Turnmills, Egg and Barcelona's Row 14. Today, he counts himself as one of the widely respected and revered team of Fuse residents at London's 93 Feet East, where you can regularly catch him spinning away to his ever-burgeoning band of hardcore followers. MEOKO 046, the latest episode in the esteemed podcast series, is simply a 60 minute insight into a typical Rossko set. Keeping things deep and dubby throughout, he starts things off at a more composed, tranquil pace, gradually building towards a tense, heady climax. While there are brief flashes of upbeat, piano-led fare, Rossko is careful to never show all his cards at once, constantly testing and teasing the listener and keeping them firmly locked. For a man whose DJ career began but a handful of years ago, Rossko can cut it amongst the best in the business. Our advice? Keep one eye firmly trained on him in 2013.
