Bio: Born and raised in the Bay Area, Jordan Rolle first picked up a guitar at age 8. Inspired by the likes of Eddie Van Halen and Steve Vai, he practiced hours on end and later formed a band in high school. In 2012 he began using FL Studio and quickly started spending his days making loops similar to one of his biggest influences, Clams Casino. Later his inspiration expanded to Big Chocolate, Flosstradamus, and Loudpvck who were pioneering the convergence of dirty South Rap and electronic music. Jordan soon made the switch to Ableton Live and his production and live creation abilities took shape. He started collaborating with close friend Quiet Des and was soon making music and playing shows with the Bay Area based collective, Quiet Planet. Jordan later moved to his current home of Santa Barbara where he met Nicky Slap and began collaborating. After Nick founded Sound & Society, Jordan was the obvious choice to be Sound and Society's first resident DJ. The rest is still to be written.
