ROD is the newborn alter-ego of Rotterdam based Benny Rodrigues to clearly define the more techno oriented side of his musical identity. ROD’s critically acclaimed debut-release ‘Malmok’ was released on Ben Klock’s Klockworks label and formed the start of a fruitful discography that contains very positively received releases on renowned labels such as Chris Liebing’s CLR Recordings, Richie Hawtin’s M_nus Recordings and Adam Beyer's Drumcode Records. Next to these original productions, ROD has also crafted ‘trademark ROD’ reworks for seminal techno-classic such as ‘Slam- Positive Education’ (Soma) and Carl Craig's '69- Poi Et Pas' (Planet E) among others. But above all ROD is known for his deeply rooted dj-sets, which bring him to many techno-hotspots around the world, including Berlin’s iconic Berghain. All this, combined with his highly regarded RODnacht events in Rotterdam, put ROD in the top tier of the new school generation of Techno artists.
