Bio

Diger Rokwell is an artist that knows no boundary, as represented through the nonlinear output from the Perth based multi instrumentalist and DIY dabbler. With a career that spans over ten releases Diger Rokwell has travelled and sampled the cultures of Cambodia, Japan and Sri Lanka, and explored the realms of psych, hip-hop, tropical, Four on the Floor, soul, disco and ‘mind music’ through multi-instrumentation.

Following his showcase performance at BigSound 2016 and his first National tour taking his critically acclaimed 10” split release Seed/Sprouts across Australia, Diger Rokwell releases his latest single, All Time Glow, featuring Mathas. A collaboration from the long-time friends and founding members of The Community. With the first taste of new music from Diger, All Time Glow features samples sourced on his Beat Tourism Excursion to Japan in 2015.

Following the release of All Time Glow, early 2017 will see the release of Rows, the final part of the 10” trilogy. Rows is penned as a cosmic disco and boogie journey, inspired by synth and vocoder, and whole heap of fun. With mid 2017 seeing Digpan, the next in the sample based Beat Tourism Series unleashed.

Diger Rokwell is a critically acclaimed electronic producer and live performer. He is the WAM Award winner 2012 & 2014 Electronic Producer of the Year and 2013 Electronic Live Act of the Year. The Community Records are nominated for the WAM Best Record Label Award 2016.

Head of The Community Records and one half Rokwell&Groom with Felicity Groom, Diger Rokwell is a must see solo live act. Throughout his career, he has supported the likes of Flying Lotus, Gaslamp Killer, Harmonic 313 and People under the Stairs just to name a few to rave reviews.
