DescriptionRoom 202 are DJ duo Mark Rogers and Ger Kinsella. Each of the boys have been DJing since their early teens where they learned their trade playing vinyl at local clubs and parties. With the introduction of new technology throughout the years the lads have progressed to playing on many formats, whether it be vinyl, CDJ or digital DJing on programmes such as Traktor Scratch, but their preferred option is to perform using Pioneer's CDJ range. Individually they have played and held residencies at a range of clubs across the midlands.
In March 2010 Mark was awarded iDj Magazine Raw Talent runner up in a mix comp. He also won a mix comp with RTE Pulse in 2011 and his one hour mix was aired on RTE 2fm as well as an interview from the man himself. The lads began to grow increasingly frustrated with the lack of quality underground dance music and clubs within the midlands area so they began creating their own podcast show where they showcased all their musical interests and skills.
It was through this medium where they were approached to play support role for tech house DJ and label owner Kate Lawler's first gig in the capital. Since then the gigs have came fast and furious for the boys thanks to their mature style of disco, deep and tech house as well as techno and broken beats. They have played in a host of venues and club nights across Dublin such as Sauce at The Kitchen, The Twisted Pepper, 515 at Crawdaddy, Our House at Pod and many more. As well as festivals like No Place Like Dome, Mystik Fest and Mansion Fest throughout the summer months.
Now with their weekly show 'Bilingual' on Dublin's premier underground radio station Play FM the boys popularity and status within the underground house music scene has soared, so much so that they were chosen as support act for internationally renowned house music label Defected In the House's first ever Irish appearance and played alongside Miss Divine & Franky Rizardo.
Having added producing to an ever impressive CV, 2012 is sure to be a very busy year for the two boys. Watch out for brand new tracks to be released on Redbox Records and others labels which are to be confirmed. You can catch Room 202 live every Wednesday 10pm - 12Midnight with their show "Bilingual" on Play FM Dublin.
Ant Brooks is a prime example of why hard work, dedication and an undeniable talent are key to progressing in the EDM scene.
