Same Thing But Different – January 2018

I know that a lot of people often think of pounding, faster techno when they hear the DJ Name Rouchos, but I’m definitely so much more than just that. ‘Same Thing But Different ‘DJ Sets explore records collected over my 20 odd years as a DJ but couldn’t otherwise find a natural fit for my regular podcasts.

Since I’ve been involved in the Toronto scene, it’s been known for its generic tech-house of build-up and breakdowns, though I always went against the grain. In this edition of ‘Same Thing But Different’, a mix that swings between deep grooves and music for the bored barman at the start of the night, there are tracks for any mood; whether you are getting ready to go out, our winding down from a late night out.


  1. Prioleau – My Friend Is A Wonder
  2. Technasia – Force (Zadig Remix)
  3. Ruhbarb – Field
  4. Eric Cloutier – Opprobrium
  5. The God’s Planet – Ascending
  6. FilOu – Scandium
  7. SQL – Surrender
  8. Romansoff – Forbidden Land
  9. Sean Dixon – Say What
  10. Aril Brikha and Chymera – Nihari
  11. FP-Oner – New Life Form
  12. PRZ and Dasco – Memories
  13. Reference – Another Place
  14. Kenny Larkin – Chasers
  15. Daniel Stefanik – Confidence (Mr. G Remix)
  16. Dilated Pupils – Remi Groove
  17. Aquaphresca – Smooth Track
  18. Javonntte – Heaven

Since You’re Here …

… I have a small favour to ask. Did you know it can take me up to 8 hours to curate, master, edit, upload and share my weekly podcasts? That’s a full day of work but I am happy to share my vinyl collection with audiences.

Unfortunately, I am also an adult, and maintaining my gear, turntables and records do carry expenses. So I have setup my virtual tip jar searching for a coffee. I didn’t set up a Patreon page to make a living, or get rich, rather, I’ve setup my Patreon with the intention of using it as a channel to reach out to my followers and fans.

If making a recurring donation on Patreon is too much of a long-term commitment, perhaps buying me a coffee suits your budget. Click here to donate a few dollars using Paypal, otherwise, my future would be much more secure if you were to become a Patron by clicking the orange button below.
