What do you miss the most from running a club?
What I miss more is being a DJ resident. It was great to do a warmup set, start a night with an empty dance floor, and play until the club was packed for the guest DJ. Now, I'm usually the guest!
DJ Rocca's exclusive mix for Le Bain
Did you experience the golden age of cosmic disco in Italy or were you too young?
As a producer, you have an impressive line up of collaborators: Dimitri From Paris, Daniele Baldelli, Howie B, Jazzanova... How would you describe your contribution to collaborations?
Sometimes the Rocca touch could be in a rhythm, sometimes in the arrangement or in a particular sound from a synth. We start from there, and go ahead until we’re both satisfied.
My inspiration is my records collection. I own records of every genre of music, and when I need an idea, I dig in my collection and always find something inspiring.
On Friday, June 15th,
