The Mayan Long Cycle Calendar ends today and it’s a fresh start for the human race, I thought we could all hit the new cosmic year running with this high energy fast paced absolute banger of a Progressive, Psy-Trance Traktor DJ Mix set courtesy of DJ Rockit.
Dj ROCKIT (a.k.a. Rudy ROCKIT) discovered the sounds of Techno in 1990 when first hearing the song “The Spice Must Flow” by Eon at METROPOLIS, a local club in Fresno, California. At the time being in a local Punk band, hearing this new sound led to Rudy’s passion for electronic dance music and on to his journey into the underground rave scene and club culture. Even though it would be some time before he would fully discover this New World and his new destiny, he was now on the path to new discoveries.
On January 1st 1995, Rudy took up the art of Dj’ing and Dj ROCKIT was born. Stepping behind the decks he set out with one mission, to make people feel the groove and party their asses off!
From there on he developed his own unique style of Progressive House, Breaks, Electro and Trance.
Since his emergence on the scene, he has held residency’s for several production companies in Northern California and for one of the most notable night clubs in the Sacramento area. In the mid and late 90’s he was one of the main residents for two of the most well known rave and club production companies in the Nor-Cal area, “SUBSONIC UNDERGROUND” and “FUZ-E” Productions. In 2000, Dj ROCKIT held a two year residency at LIFT, one of the predominate EDM nights inside the Rage night club in Sacramento. He has also held a residency for “STATIC” productions and his own production company known as “THE PHUNKY PEOPLE PROJECT” till 2007.
On Sept 5th of 2004, Dj ROCKIT became the one and only winner of the USA Heineken, Club Ice DJ challenge. This contest which was held at ICE in Las Vegas was also filmed for the first network for men, Spike TV’s reality show called “THE CLUB”.
Where he and twelve other DJ’s that were picked from out of over 250 DJ’s to participate in the contest to battle for the 2004 Heineken DJ Challenge title and the chance to open at the clubs most packed night alongside World renowned DJ’s Paul Oakenfold and Sandra Collins.
Dj Rockit was judged and finally picked by Paul Oakenfold as the winner of the contest amongst a finale three talented DJ’s that included himself, Dj Love Jewels and Dj Diamond. And during the contest, he made short spot appearances on several of the shows episodes with the other contestants. And then was finally featured along with Paul Oakenfold and Sandra Collins on the shows next to last episode as the winner of the DJ challenge where he also had the pleasure of opening for Paul and Sandra there at ICE.
Currently Dj Rockit is a resident for one of the most notorious and well known crews in Northern California, Strategik Productions. He also now holds a residency and does a live internet radio show on one of the worlds most renowned breakbeat stations, NUBREAKS.COM. His show “STRATEGIK’S DOWN RIGHT DIRTY” airs every Sunday from 7-9 PST. 10-12 EST.
With those residency’s and with a new passion and drive for his music, he is ready to reintroduce the world to the sounds of the one and only,
