Roberto Rodriguez is rapidly becoming an artist to watch as he releases stunning tunes such as ‘The Way Is Hard’ and more recently ‘Nostalgia’.
Having landed signings to some of the industry’s hottest labels such as Exia Recordings, Wolfrage and Toka Beatz along with support from the likes of Oliver Heldens, Timmy Trumpet and Don Diablo we caught up with Roberto to discuss more about his productions.
T.H.E – What was the inspiration behind ‘The Way Is Hard’?
Roberto Rodriguez – My inspiration behind ‘The Way Is Hard’ was to re-imagine the sound of Big Room tracks that were released 4-5 years ago. I feel like we need to go back and look at past styles in each genre.

Roberto Rodriguez – Energetic, melodic, inspirational

Roberto Rodriguez – The reaction was positive. People need songs like “The Way Is Hard”
T.H.E – What was it like working with Exia Recordings/ReState Records?
Roberto Rodriguez – I loved working with this label, specifically with Yegor Bochkareov. He is a man who knows his stuff and knows how to run a record company.
T.H.E – Do you have a favourite part of the tune?
Roberto Rodriguez – I think it would have the be the mid-section where all of the instrumentation has been fully brought into the music. I just love the overall groove of this track.

Roberto Rodriguez – I started on the main section as it allows for me to see where to go as the track develops.
T.H.E – Can we expect any more music from you before the year is out?
Roberto Rodriguez – Yes! I actually have two tracks coming out this month on Push2Play Music and Future Plan Sounds.
T.H.E – If you could recommend a song that best describes you as an artist what would it be?
