Biography

Cadenza – Oliver Rodigan to his parents – knew his life might follow a musical path at an early age. After studying piano and violin, as well as playing in the orchestra, he dodged a career as a lawyer, “I realised I didn’t want to solve other people’s problems,” and studied theology at Edinburgh University. It was here that his first proper track, “Darkest Hype” was released on Dummy. A dancehall monster that the label’s A&R team discovered during a set by legendary Reggae lover and DJ David Rodigan at Sonar. “My dad likes a lot of what I do, obviously,” Cadenza laughs, “but my mum is a little more hard to please. She’s a good barometer.” It comes as no surprise that Cadenza has picked up some of his dad’s musical influences by osmosis. “But I wouldn’t say they wanted me to go into music

Manager, Producer, A&R, Label Boss... and of course a sought afterDJ in his own right – Cadenza truly is a 21st century renaissance man. Rather than focusing the live aspect on Cadenza shows, he has made the conscious decision to remain as a DJ, playing out other people’s music, while working on his own catalogue. With his DJ sets skating through genres –from dancehall to grime and jungle, he manipulates each set specifically for the location he’s DJing from. “I love playing other people’s music,” he confirms, “I have a template of which sequences work nicely that I adapt, and with each show I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t.”
