A Frenchman who has spent much of his formative years in London, it’s safe to say that Thomas Roland is a man who’s spent a considerable amount of time on some of the world’s foremost dancefloors. A DJ of serious repute, he helps run the recently-established Highpath imprint, which to date has featured music from a host of established and shrewdly chosen up-and-coming names. A regular at the Zoo Project in Ibiza (often alongside his label mate and good friend Stephane Ghenacia), Roland is a versatile DJ with a penchant for classy house, the likes of which his label is also starting to become known for. A prime candidate for the Back 2 Mine series, here are his picks…


1 The Logic Box – Liquid [AO18]

One of the most special tracks in my collection.. .. a timeless deep house gem! made by Chris Carrier & Guillaume La Tortue on carrier’s imprint Adult only back in 2002
