Electronic Dance Music | Germany
German DJ/Producer and label owner D.O.N.S. has established himself as one of the most innovative, unique, and exciting figures in the dance music Industry. From his solo productions to his bootlegs and covers to his highly sought-after remixes, D.O.N.S. studio output is an ever impressive slew of crafted gems for the dancefloor.

In 2005, Oliver decided to become D.O.N.S. in order to focus on a softer side of House music. During a couple of years, Oliver was working on D.O.N.S. productions from 9 to 5pm and touring as a Warp Brother from 9 to 5am. Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hide lasted until Oliver found his passion and happiness in the D.O.N.S. project releasing a few hits such as legendary Pump Up the Jam (2nd most successful worldwide dance track 2005), Big Fun (voted as one of the best 25 cover versions of all times by DJ Mag) and The Nighttrain, Searching For Love, Alive and many more all topping mainstream and dance charts around the Globe and propelling him to the rank of an A-list DJ/Producer. Top 10 sales charts positions in the UK, Spain, Ireland, Scandinavia, France and many more countries were the result of his hard work.
From John Dahlback’s Blink and Everywhere, to Kid Cudi’s Day ‘n’ Nite, Roger Sanchez’s Release Yoself, Afrojack´s Esther, Bob Sinclars What I Want or Ron Carroll’s Lucky Star, many international hits owe their success to his remixes, giving him the recognition of the remixer the most in demand in the world.

On show, his technique and energy have set the fire in prestigious clubs and festivals impressive crowds such as over 300,000 people in Valencia. Bootlegging and mash-upping, live for shows, or especially edited for his radio show, his performances are always a not to be missed one of a kind. Amnesia Miami, Ministry Of Sound London, Pacha London, Pacha Buzios/Rio De Janeiro, Pacha Munich, Space & Amnesia Ibiza are displaying only a small selection of the top notch clubs he rocked the crowd.

With over 30 million daily listeners on around 100 radio stations in 40 countries, D.O.N.S. IN THE MIX is carefully prepared by D.O.N.S. himself every single week, with the most exclusive, undiscovered and up-to-date sound, all edited for the purpose of the show. You can enjoy this weekly D.O.N.S. in THE MIX streamed to your ROCKI from SoundCloud. Just hop over to SoundCloud, add it to your playlist and you can import it into your ROCKI App.

Like D.O.N.S. Facebook page to keep up with his schedule, always playing somewhere in some hot club. The coming weekend is at La Davina in London.

Very interesting unique genre-blending sound with an even more distinctive persona, it was a challenge to create a ROCKI that would truly represent the Skip&Die colorful spirit. Eventually Skip&Die's designers came up with this awesome design - a jungle of psychedelic camouflage - we love it!!


The challenge is then now in our hands - how will we produce this design? We experimented with printing techniques and different material including silicone, plastics and different surface coatings. But had to reject most of them when the colors were not vibrant enough. Finally we think we have the right technique on silicone (the same material as the ROCKI Color Covers). Now we're eagerly awaiting the samples for approval this week - cross our fingers. When approved, we can then begin production. Can't wait.

Netherlands & South Africa
SKIP&DIE is a collaboration between the South African vocalist / visual artist Catarina Aimée Dahms (aka Cata.Pirata) and Dutch producer Jori Collignon (C-Mon & Kypski, Nobody Beats The Drum). What started as a two-man project, has now been transformed into a full-fledged 5-piece live band. While traveling through South Africa's Soweto, Johannesburg, Cape Town and Guguletu, they collaborated with some of SA's most inspiring music-makers on the rise. Their first album: a mix of electro and afro beats, portrays their experience of blazing sun, dusty roads, township shacks, cockroaches, skulls, bones and lovebirds (in Spanish, Portuguese, English, Afrikaans, Xhosa and Zulu) and is scheduled to be released this year.
