Roly began his career as one half of dubstep duo Vex’d, releasing a series of singles on Bristol’s Subtext label, before moving to Planet Mu to release ‘Degenerate’ and ‘Cloud Seed’. His solo work fuses his background in soundsystem music with contemporary classical composition and focused sound design resulting in a singular and often harrowing sound.
In 2013, two of his albums, ‘Aftertime’ and ‘Life Cycle of a Massive Star’ featured in FACT Magazine’s Top 50 Albums of the Year. Roly has collaborated with many amazing musicians and video artists, including Emptyset’s James Ginzburg, a quartet from Sinfonietta Cracovia and MFO. As a composer and sound designer, Roly has produced original soundtracks for Film 4′s ‘In Fear’ which premiered at Sundance festival, and dystopian thriller ‘Interferenz’, and has contributed sound design to several trailers including ‘Pompeii’ and ‘Lucy’.
