Rollover DJs are the founders and resident DJs of the popular namesake party in Milan. The duo began their career playing at small clubs and private parties linked to the fashion scene, near and along the hip canals area of Milan. From word-of-mouth amongst the in-crowd, their parties gained popularity fast, and in the meantime the duo’s music also evolved, creating a unique disco/house mix with roots firmly in ‘70s funk, new wave, and Afrobeat.
In 2016 they founded Apollo Milano, a new home for the Rollover brand, that combines a club, cocktail bar and restaurant, inspired by the Soho House in London and ACE Hotels in NYC/Palm Springs.
2018 proved to be a busy year, marked by the founding of their own Balearic-inspired edits-only label ANYTHING GOES, releasing two sell-out EPs containing edits by Boot & Tax, Bottin, SHMLSS and Tagliabue. Edits have been played by the likes of 2manydjs, Cassius, Lovefingers, Erol Alkan and Pional. In the same year, the duo also made their debut with the EP Tango Ipnotico (Jolly Jams, Berlin), a post-punk and cosmic/disco blend containing two original Rollover DJ songs along with an Eric Duncan remix. Critics described it as “hard-to-pigeonhole peak-time fun” with the title track “expertly layering Italo-disco style electronics and wayward vocal samples atop a rubbery, post-punk disco groove” (Juno, 2018). The tracks were played by other DJs such as DJ Harvey, Jacques Renault, and Tim Sweeney.
In 2019 they launched a new label under their established Rollover brand with the simple promise to support and promote DJs and producers of Italy’s underground scene. Each release will be dedicated to an Italian artist with a special benediction, i.e. a remix, by an international DJ. This first Ep contains three original songs by Rollover Djs plus one remix by Tim Sweeney & Lauer aka T&P: Ambient, Balearic & Cosmic House in Rollover Djs’ full extent.
Rollover DJs remain the preferred DJs by the fashion and design industry and their list of international clients include Moschino, Versace, Dsquared2, Margiela, Armani, Givenchy, Adidas, Diesel, Netflix, Instagram, Samsung, and Zegna.
We’re happy to have the duo on our series upon their performance at WECANDANCE Festival on August 10th this weekend.
