Music is something that enters our body through physical means, and we can read volumes about the science behind it, but instead, why don’t we just listen closely. Let’s all be friends and ride along a rainbow of sound. In this moment I’m having the most intense deja vu that I have ever experienced. If you can imagine the following then you’ll see and feel what I mean.
Sitting in the Wolfsonian café writing on a mosaic colored round table with three legs, I’m the only person here. Just me, alone with soft jazz and clash of a Miami thunderstorm in the background. It makes me realize what wonderful organs our ears are — made exclusively to perceive the art of sound. As the ballet of raindrops begins to halt and retard the traffic outside the window all I wish to do is ZAP — yes ZAP everyone with a radio frequency of some Sishi Rösch gansta house music! Imagine that! Traffic would become a party that you wouldn’t want to end. People would get out on the street and bump and grind in the rain. Baby making on Washington avenue! Now, now, lets get off that high for a second and realize that Sishi will be at Treehouse this Friday July 20th and he is damn good!
Here is a little back and forth between Sishi and I on Facebook chat:
Dude, what is music to you and what sounds influenced you?
Wow, very deep question, lol. For me music is everything in life. If you really pay attention to the world, you will notice that everything has a sound and a purpose. Mathematics is the language of nature, and music is mathematics. We are all ones and zeros. Music is simply the most beautiful art ever invented.
I really don’t have any favorite type of music for when I’m going through difficult times, but I would say that I’m a big hip-hop, R’n'B and reggae fan. When I’m not making or playing music, I tend to always be listening to old hip-hop jams and more breaky 80′s stuff like “Newcleus” or “Roger & Zapp” type of stuff.
Explain your work ethic and life mission.
People tell me all the time that I’m a work-a-holic. I guess I really take things seriously when it comes to music. You can even say that I’m a bit obsessive when it comes to making music. I come from a very hard working family, and I have very big shoes to fill, so I guess I just give it my all in everything that I do.
To be successful and happy doing whatever I end up doing. To have a family of my own. Travel the world. Buy an Island.
Best Movie ever?
This is a hard one. Would be between Napoleon Dynamite and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
Well quite busy to be honest. Me and my bro Miguel Puente are opening our own Vinyl/Digital label in the upcoming year. We have very big plans for this, but I’m afraid I can’t spill the beans on that just yet, but def stay tuned. Our Puente & Rosch project has just been getting better and better in the last year as we have been gone on tour half the year pretty much and have had lots of time to really focus on where we want to go.
I also started this new project with local-pimp Jesse Perez when he was doing his Europe tour earlier this summer. We had lots of time to kick it here in Barcelona and well we ended up making a killer EP that will come out on Jesse’s label “Mr. Nice Guy” later on in the year. It won’t come out with our real names. We made a special AKA for this as well, so stay tuned. Other than that, just pretty much focus on Digital Delight and Sultry Vibes, as they have been getting a lot of attention lately which I am really happy about. We have some amazing release lined up for both labels, can’t wait to release them.
Anything you want readers to know about you?
Im a huge nerd.
I am a huge nerd as well and at Treehouse we appreciate people of all forms — especially pioneers like Sishi. We consider ourselves pioneers and curators of the best electronic music in the world. We have to let ourselves be naked in front of the speakers and lose the veil that society has placed over us to truly enjoy music and let it enter our bodies, travel to our soul and shake it up one drop at a time. Open your eyes, it’s Friday night and Kaboom! Sishi is making you move from the inside out.
Artists are what motivate my promotion. If the artist doesn’t invoke passion in others through his work, if you cant feel the struggle, if you see the work, if you feel the love and get your soul shaken, then and only then it is worth promotion, otherwise it’s as useful as salt to a snail.
If you have read my words up to this point, I commend you for having an above average attention span. If you want some really fun music listening, I would feel really special if you look into a Mexican duo called Balcazar and Sordo. They are playing at Treehouse on Saturday July 28.
