Chilled beats and sunny grooves reflect the tropical surroundings of the idyllic Great Barrier Reef paradise of Cairns, Australia where Rolanoid is based.
As a teenager in the 80's money from long laborious holiday jobs bought him the now classic TR-808 drum machine later choosing the hybridised artist name Rolanoid in homage to the 808 and it's maker Roland. Heavily inspired early on by Kraftwerk and Depeche Mode, Rolanoid charted several times in the top 10 alongside mainstream artists Paul Van Dyk, Basement Jaxx and Moby at the height of MySpace popularity in 2006. His tracks have featured on MTV and Channel 4 UK productions as well as alongside Daft Punk, The Chemical Brothers and U2 on the soundtrack for the BBC television series Dreamspaces. "Locked In" his collaboration with Scott Nunan was a finalist in the 2007 International Songwriting Competition (ISC).
