Panama City based artist Wes Rolan started DJing in 1996 after finding his initial inspiration in the Panhandle. A year later he’d move to a much more happening Gainesville, where his influences included Florida’s finest contemporaries of the day in DJs like Ray Coker, Chang, and Jask. He went on to gain his own residencies in that very same college town, which once held its own on a global scale for dance music in the early days of Simon’s – although it may be hard to trace today. Coming from such an exciting time, Wes has gone on to play across Florida and nationally from coast to coast, with notable gigs in major cities like Miami, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and New York. His style is party driven, Wes moves seamlessly between his specialty of deep house and the more buoyant modern garage sounds, even sometimes dipping into the realm of deviously fun nu-disco. It’s body music meant for dancers by and by, with a healthy obsession for bass and always looking for something more from tracks that drip with sensuality and soul. He plays a mix of soulful house and deep bass driven deep house. His tracks are sexy, his mixing is technical, and he keeps it real.
In October of 2018 Wes Rolan was voted Best DJ by Emerald Coast Magazine.
As a producer, of August 2016 Wes signed to 7 Love Records with five releases, his latest tracks “Shout @ U” and “Want U Back” have had huge support from DJs, and are crowd favorites.
In early 2019 Wes founded SoulPurpose Records. A deep house label based out of his home state of Florida.
