Firepower Records is incredibly honored to announce the release of ‘Long Live Barron’ EPon May 23rd, 2019. Commemorating the life of one of the first producers Firepower had the pleasure of working with, Barron’s legacy lives on through his music. This EP will be released on Jordan’s birthday to honor his life and his own struggle with addiction. All proceeds from this release will be donated to the Jordan Matthew Roche Memorial Fund. We we are honored to have the privilege in keeping his memory alive through his art.
Jordan Roche, also recognized as Barron, was a 21 year old Maryland-based DJ and producer who worked tirelessly to perfect his craft in producing bass music and quickly earned recognition from some of the most influential producers and imprints in the industry. By the time he was in high school, Jordan had earned a well deserved spot on the Firepower Records roster in its starting years and went on to release several EP’s and singles on the label, as well as participating in a number of tours with fellow label mates all over the U.S. During this time, Jordan developed a loyal following of colleagues and fans alike who continue to enjoy his music to this day.
In addition to his artistic contributions during his lifetime, Jordan also dedicated his life to those struggling with addiction and served as a positive influence in their journey to and through sobriety. Despite having his own arduous time with sobriety over the years Jordan still dedicated his time to support others in their own recovery. Sadly, Jordan lost his battle with addiction in 2015. Today we keep Jordan’s memory alive through his art and we hope to shed light on the ongoing opioid epidemic and continue to help those struggling with this terrible disease in his name.
Jordan’s family started The Jordan Matthew Roche Memorial Fund to continue to help others fighting addiction. All proceeds donated directly fund aftercare programs and sober living in order to establish a path to recovery for those who may not have the means to access proper treatment. Any amount donated will help. Thank you for continuing to honor Jordan and helping us make a difference.
