Rolf Saxer started touring as an electronic live act in summer 2015. With his "hardware only" approach, he uses a sampler and analogue machinery like a drum computer and a synthesizer. His live sets feature a broad variety of sample-driven House with references to Techno, Dub, Soul and traditional music from all kinds of distant areas. Or, as it is being characterised by Hardau Records: „House music with a twist for the open minded dance floor“. Laid- back percussion grooves blend with reverb-infused sitar melodies. Polyrhythms with vocal lines out of the global echo chamber - all complemented by the underlying drum beats. Most of Rolf Saxer’s material is unpublished. It keeps developing further and further out of the live situation. Gigs at the infamous Lethargy Festival, at Hive Club, Kauz and at parties hosted by Zurich’s leading independent station GDS.FM as well as the release of his debut-EP „Dust/Dust- Remixes“ brought him more and more attention of the local scene. In July 2016, he played his first shows in Germany and created lots of dreamy euphoria on the dance floors of Silbergold in Frankfurt, Gaengeviertel in Hamburg and at the Feel Festival on the „Endlos“-Stage in between great artists like Erobique and Schlepp Geist. 2017 he played Off The Radar amongst other gigs in Germany and legendary "Château Jolifanto" in Burgundy/France. Early 2018 he will play at Golden Pudel Club in Hamburg and at Silbergold in Frankfurt.
