Toronto has been a hot bed for electronic music for a minute now, but no time like the present have we been noticed for the creativity that is oozing out of every border. This brings us Riviera. Hailing from Toronto, and getting her chops in all aspects of the music industry, Riviera has been building a strong following in her native Toronto and abroad. Currently releasing music on Kinetika Records she has got her ear to the ground and is most definitely producing that funky beat. You are just as likely to catch her playing at a Kinetika showcase in Miami, as you are to hear her ripping it in an underground warehouse party.
Next up from Riviera is an exciting EP on Kinetika Records titled 'Nuromancer'. A forte into the minimal side of all that is holy on the dance floor, Nuromancer is as hypnotic as it is catchy. A signature sound by this exciting young talent, she has enlisted the admirable talents of Axel and Stiv Hey to handle remix duties, both exciting young talents from Milan who have already made their mark on the Beatport charts. This is a release that is surely not to be missed.
Released on the 27th of May, this fresh new EP is sure to be on heavy rotation this summer. Here's a little sneak peek:
