DJ Rolando

Born in the 1970s in southwest Detroit, Rolando grew up heavily influenced by his Latin rhythms and percussion. When he heard DJ Jeff Mills mix as "The Wizard," he discovered the sounds of techno. Through a mutual friend, he was introduced to "Mad" Mike Banks and promptly became a member of the enigmatic Underground Resistance crew.

His album Knights of the Jaguar broke techno into other genres of dance music and became a regular rotation from the crates of DJs such as Danny Tenaglia, Erick Morillo, Paul Oakenfold, and Giles Peterson.

More recently — preceding a subsequent public fallout — Rolando and Gerald Mitchell created the label Los Hermanos.
