Title: Radish EP
Release date: Feb, 2013
The musical career of Roger Vellion aka LilRoj began in Louisiana, where at the age of 15 he began experimenting with turntables and electronic music. In 1994, at the age of 18 he broke into the nightclub scene, and two years later the New Orleans Rave scene. Early gigs included Freebass Society events at the State Palace Theatre, known as the epicenter of music and culture in New Orleans, as well as many large mid 90′s warehouse parties in major cities like Houston and Memphis. He continued to be a staple in the Southern scene up until 2002, when he moved to Portland, Oregon.
In Portland, Roj established himself as a top local talent and began to refine his sound, focusing on funky, bass-heavy techno and minimal. He also began expanding his passion for electronic music production. In 2008 Roj began working with fellow Portland artist JAK, becoming a key remixer and producer for the SubSensory label. Roj now helps manage the label as well as SubSensory’s monthly event: STATIC.
