With strong roots deep into the hip hop culture of the 90s’, it’s no wonder that Roger Geressen’s music has that special groove at the very base of its DNA, no matter the subgenre. One can feel this special groove nesting inside Roger’s dub techno creations for Diurnal, or his early works for Sudden Drop, a sublabel of Fear of Flying. Nevertheless, his signature sound received plenty of space to express without being influenced by festival driven trends or underground hypes.

Maybe that’s the reason Roger Gerressen launched no less than 4 labels: IRENIC, Autodidact, Fstauer and OGUN Records, while he’s also co-founder at ESHU Records. And that’s another reason for us to ask Roger to reveal his vinyl alter ego, as he’s an avid collector and a passionate curator. Here we go! 👇
