Rortron’s interest in music began with thunderously percussive Metal (Rage Against the Machine, Slipknot) then evolved into a taste for lyrical and catchy Hip-Hop (Gang Starr, Beastie Boys, Wu-Tang, and Hieroglyphics) and finally arriving at the pulsating rhythm of Electronic music (Paul Oakenfold, Armin Van Buuren, and Odesza).
This varied background, coupled with the exposure to a multitude of live and recorded musical genres shaped him into the DJ/Producer he is today. Rortron has his own style with sets that illicit the deep, layered textures that combine a mixture of the old and new, familiar with exotic, catchy with contagious. His passion to share a truly memorable experience with his audience drives him to continually improve and evolve.
As a strong supporter of Eugene’s independent musicians and artists, he is familiar with the efforts involved in a close-knit music scene. Originally a songwriter and emcee, he has made impromptu performances on various stages throughout Eugene. In fact, it was his original collaborations with friends that brought him to Eugene and their continued support which keeps him here.
