Roel Janssen

“I'm a music journalist and editor and for the
last five years I've worked fulltime for the popmagazine ‘LiveXS’. That was an enormous musical learning process during which I
discussed a huge number of new releases,
concerts and festivals and interviewed
hundreds of artists. I specialised in hiphop
and electronics. After my period with ‘LiveXS’
I wrote freelance for publications such as
‘FRET’, ‘State Magazine’, ‘Hiphopinjesmoel’
and ‘Reload’. For the radioprogramme
‘NightLiveXS’ on Kink FM I coordinated
concert discussions for a few years. Before
then I played a lot for pirate radio stations, internetstations and local broadcasters in North Brabant.”
