Rockets is one man, Fred Oliveira, from Portugal. His smooth brand of filtered disco house has become a permanent staple in my sets, after I stumbled across him on Myspace about a year ago. Formerly going under the name Discorockets, he has remixed artists such as Meroz, Butterfly Bones and Kool & The Gang, and had releases on Discotexas and Patrick Alavi’s label Roxour.

Oliveira’s newly launched side project Lazydisco (which Fred himself describes as “music with sparkles”) sees him exploring slower, more electronic territories. With an original EP and a remix of the new Xinobi tune “Japanese” (both to be released on Discotexas) in the pipeline, things are looking promising.
