Riva Starr first made our ears prick up like those of a stalked animal, in that final moment of realisation of impending doom, when he released the ‘Thizzle EP’ on Jesse Rose’s label Frontroom - and since then he’s continued to devour dance floors with his taste for the best in tech house and bleeping, burping synth lines that leave crowds across the globe in a flailing climax of chaos. After releasing the ‘WTF?!' EP on Claude VonStroke’s notable Dirtybird label, the Italian stallion has seen continuing success with a high demand for his razzle-dazzle remixes for people like Armand Van Helden (‘J’Taime’), Audio Bullys (‘Flickery Vision’) and his own EP ‘Sratch’n’Itch,’ which has received great support and many a play in various DJs' sets.
Seeing years of hard work rewarded by the sudden and much deserved attention following his release on Frontroom, Riva has since played a monumental amount of dates including a tour of China, the Glastonbury, Glade and Fusion Festivals and two slots at the Winter Music Conference in Miami. You can expect a new album alongside more remixes for the likes of Fatboy Slim, The New Devices and The Gossip.
And with Riva Starr being such a star, he has kindly given us a mix and a track for you to consume in preparation for this Friday. We really wanna see those fingers... clicking on the links below obvs, not gyrating like palm worms in front of our peepers.
