Riva Starr is no stranger to running a label. His highly successful Snatch Records has seen releases from &ME, Dennis Cruz, Fatboy Slim and Solardo. Now, the Italian-Born London-based DJ/producer has founded Brock Wild, an imprint that specifically provides a platform to share left-field and bass heavy sounds.
"I’ve always been fond of left-field beats and big bass, therefore due to my eclectic taste and past background as a Hip Hop, Dub, Drum & Bass and Breakbeat DJ I've now decided to launch a new SNATCH! sub-label called BROCK WILD that'll be devoted to these type of sounds."

The first release on the Brock Wild imprint is from the man himself. The first track of the same name is a fluid, groovy cut, blending together elements of house, hip-hop and break beat - with a rasta-esque vocal and some serious synths. The second on the two tracker is 'Pull Up, which features Amsterdam artist Zanillya. It's another serious track - with a steady groove and with a deep sub bassline - moving into some TR-909-filled percussion, warped vocal snips and some more twisted effects to bring this together as the perfect closer.
