TSOH | Close up: Rod Malmok talks about overcoming insecurities for his new album

We caught up with Rotterdam techno titan Benny Rodrigues aka. ROD for an open-hearted conversation about his new album Back to Square One. It was the first record he felt confident enough about to release on his own label. “Before this album, I would always send my tracks to others, because I really needed the reassurance of big names like Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann or Garnier to know the value of my own music. “This is the first time I had the balls to bring it out myself.”

He also explains why he doesn’t work with a management, bookings agency or PR-company. And reminisces about his first vacation on Ibiza, where he was overwhelmed by all the billboards and the big DJ names. Last summer, he saw his own face on one of the billboards across from Amnesia, for his residency at HYTE. “If you want to focus on an international career, Ibiza is a very important stronghold.”
