VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Nicklaus Rueda (ROTA)
One of our contributors, Ben Slowey, is more than on top of the local music scene. In addition to his work for Breaking And Entering, he also hosts the Mr. Nice Guy podcast, an interview-based show that reaches out to Milwaukeeans for conversations about what motivates them. Many of these shows fittingly involve the local music scene, and we’ll be sharing some of them here as well.
Today, Ben talks to DJ, graphic designer, and Andrew Yang enthusiast Nicklaus Rueda, who goes by the artist name ROTA. He toured in a hardcore band and then as a DJ for quite some time before focusing on other creative endeavors. We discussed Nick’s days of touring and DJing, his minimalist graphic design work, the Yang Gang, volunteering for the upcoming DNC, and how his newborn son Oliver has shifted his perspective.
