Roland M. Dill’s appearance at Amsterdam Dance Event is sponsored by the City of Cologne and the Cologne Music Export initiative.
Growing up in the sheltered village of Bergisch Gladbach Roland enjoyed music education since his childhood. Coming from a classical background by playing various instruments, such as piano, trumpet, trombone and organ, he also has been schooling his ears for jazz music. Ever since he developed a huge passion for complex patterns and rhythms as well as acoustic soundscapes rising from instruments, analogue or digital synthesizers, or simply recorded from auditory cheesecake. This musical variety is highly reflected in his tracks.
Next to his own continuous releases on labels like Trapez, Traum, Punch Music and Selador, he also composed remixes for artists such as Minilogue, Extrawelt, John Tejada or Harvey McKay. For his latest releases he has been signed by Stephan Bodzin for his Herzblut imprint. He also released on Sven Väth’s Cocoon Recordings, opening Cocoon Compilation O with “The Messenger”.
Attracting attention beyond the scene limits, even Depeche Mode requested him to contribute remixes to their album “Remixes 2: 81–11” on Daniel Miller’s legendary Mute Records and released Roland’s three different remix versions of “I Want It All”.
Roland’s music is built upon strong rhythms. He does not want to function as an ambassador and thus convey a message. He is fascinated when the crowd can delve into the atmosphere of his music and this can be anything - from highly ordered structures of total minimalism right up to wild sample and effect chaos, from general bass type sequential harmonies to total atonality. A techno kaleidoscope for his listeners to lose themselves in.
