Scotch Rolex and Shackleton
Scotch Rolex and Shackleton are two of electronic music’s most free-spirited mavericks.
Scotch Rolex, an alias of DJ Scotch Egg, is best known for his work with Kampala-based artists MC Yallah and DUMA’s Lord Spikeheart. With releases on Nyege Nyege’s Hakuna Kulala label, Rolex draws on dancehall, trap, Japanese traditional music, gabber, grindcore, Gqom, and Kuduro to unique and exciting effects.
Meanwhile, the founder of Skull Disco, Shackleton, has been carving out his brand of bass heavy, esoteric ritual trance music for the best part of two decades on labels such as Honest Jon’s, Hot Flush and Perlon.
This live project combines the surrealist punk ethos of Scotch Rolex and the bass-heavy psychedelia of Shackleton, resulting in a wild ride full of unpredictable changes, incorporating odd time signatures, cosmic synth freak outs and dubbed-out space vibrations which work equally well on the dance floor or in a concert setting.
