Only in his early 20′s, Rojdar has already done what most dare to dream. Working up from house parties to main stage festival performances and enormous radio residencies, Rojdar is hotly tipped to be one of the next big things in Australian dance music (if he isn’t already). He recently lit up the charts with his re-imagination of R.Kelly hit Ignition, and has shared the stage with international stars such as Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Deadmau5 and Martin Garrix.
2017 proved to be a breakout year on home turf in particular, for Rojdar. Inking a lucrative record deal with the holy grail of dance music, Ministry of Sound, was just the tip of the iceberg. The industry has come calling for Rojdar and he is now part of the Lucky Entertainment family, welcomed into the Mushroom Group, signing a management deal with one of Australia’s biggest music companies.
With his career already sky-rocketing to this level, the future is extremely bright for Rojdar. For now though, the epic producer and crowd-pleasing DJ gives Forte his top five gigs… so far.
David Guetta 2015 – Sold Out Hisense Arena (Opened for David)
First time I drank champagne because Mumm was the sponsor, also happened to follow up with my first ever hang over the next day. Oh and meeting David was cool, he even said my name correctly and expressed how impressed he was that a young guy played such a cool warm up set.
Ministry of Sound Club 2017 – First Headline Show
This one was cool, my first headline show in Sydney at arguably one of the most iconic venues in Australia. I also spent a lot of money flying over a videographer only for the after movie to be denied because it featured too much excess drinking. I was almost tempted to upload the behind the scenes and make no mention/footage of the actual gig.
World Famous Rooftop – Performed after Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
I performed after Macklemore & Ryan Lewis which opened the door for me eventually getting a show on the Hit Network
Australian Open, Birrarung Marr – 25/01/18
This was the first time I performed Ignition live, no practise, no nothing. We just walked out in front a full Australian Open Live Stage and slayed. About five minutes before my show had ended, I realised that my fly was undone the whole show and that’s probably why the stage-guys were laughing. My poor Tour Media guru Liam had to sit there after the show and photoshop my zip closed on all my photos.
Lost City, Brisbane Showgrounds – 03/03/18
A night set at a major festival is always rare. There was a lot happening in my show and I couldn’t afford any slip ups. But I’m a walking hazard so it wouldn’t be a Roj Show without one. Moments before Jays was meant to come onto stage to sing ‘Ignition’, I accidentally kicked my kickboard sending my laptop, keyboard and sound card flying. I’ve never seen a bunch of grown man rush to the aid of a keyboard so quick before, inspirational stuff.
