Biography

Former Drum & Bass DJ, and Metal Drummer, DJ:Rattan (aka: Rattan) quickly made a name for himself upon diving into the LA rock & roll world. With roots in the SF Thrash & Death Metal scene, Rattan is known for his heavy hand and precise timing while still maintaining a soulful groove. In addition to Powerman 5000 he’s pounded it out with fellow LA rockers, Cage9, I Am Demure and the Industrial rock group, Skumlove, and has sessioned for numerous other acts including the electro pop-metal band, Otto’s Daughter. Rattan has toured nationally and internationally sharing the stage with impressive acts such as Ozzy Osbourne, Static X, Rob Zombie and Lords of Acid to name a few. Playing with Cage9, he headlined at the Miller Lite Extravaganza in Panama and Rock the Falls Festival in Utah, and shared a cruise ship playing alongside bands such as Buckcherry, Sevendust, Filter, Hell Yeah, In This Moment and many others on Shiprocked 2011. In the summer of 2013, he became a full time member for Powerman 5000 and has been touring consecutively promoting their latest album "Builders Of The Future" (which features the hit single "How to be a Human") released on May 27, 2014 in the US and Europe, playing some of the biggest festivals including Download, Rock Am Ring, Grasspop, Hellfest & many more across the US. Fast forward to 2017, Powerman 5000 started working diligently on the new record. On October 27th 2017 the new album titled “New Wave” was released to rave reviews which included the singles, “Sid Vicious In A Dress” and “Footsteps And Voices”. Powerman 5000 have been on a headlining tour since the release of said album and will continue onto 2018. In 2020 Powerman 5000 signed with Cleopatra Records and released their latest album "The Noble Rot". Which features the single, "Black Lipstick". Touring will commence in 2021. As Rattan would say, “Keep a lookout for show dates people. You never know, we just might hit your side of the tracks...See all you freakazoids real soon!”
