A former member of Detroit's fabled Underground Resistance collective, Rolando has announced the launching of a new imprint, Roland Rocha Records, or R3 for short. Now based in Edinburgh, Scotland, the techno veteran has launched R3 with the goal of allowing for more "artistic freedom to put music out in the right context, [with] the right timing, and [to maintain] the ultimate control of his own work." As such, the label's inaugural release will come in the form of the Juu EP, which boasts three new Rolando productions—"Juu," "Non," and "Time Adjustment."
Before the upcoming EP officially launches R3 on April 28, two of the effort's productions have been included on Rolando's latest mix, which appeared on the French web magazine Trax late last month. That mix, including "Time Adjustment" and "Juu," can be heard via the player below, where the artwork for the Juu EP has also been included.
