As a long time London resident, Rob Kirkaldy is more than familiar with the city’s thriving techno scene. In 2015 he started the label Fossil Archive, but he’s been DJing and producing under the alias Roberto for considerably longer. Most significantly Roberto plays a sound close to Detroit techno, which has seen him go from remixing Stephen Brown to getting regular plays from stalwarts like Kirk Digorgio.
Behind the decks he’s made a name in playing sleek, refined sets for some time now, which has seen him taking his Detroit sound from beyond the capital to Berlin institutions Berghain and Tresor.
But as this mix from Tresor last summer reveals, his tastes also span further than that too. Emotive and insightful, it gives a picture into the kind of thing we’re expecting to hear from him when he returns to join us in Room Two later on this month.
