On this week’s Discover we feature a man who needs no formal introduction. He’s been in the dance music industry for ages, has seen it grow and mature into the massive success it, and has been fortunate enough to be a part of it. I am of course talking about Robbie Rivera. Having multiple hit tracks, including one hitting #13 on the UK national pop chart, which he considers one of his many milestone moments.
Robbie Rivera began his music life at a young age, in school learning the drums. By high school, he had a drum machine and was already beginning to edit music to his liking. Quickly, he came to the realization that the music life was the life he wanted to follow. Many DJs at the time such as Louie Vega, Danny Tenaglia, Faithless and Armand van Helden inspired him and helped him find his groove.
“House, Tech House, Tribal House, Progressive House, Deep House – For me it’s all just dance music!”
Having played at some of the world’s premier festivals, Robbie Rivera has seen his fair share of shows. From EDC, Ultra Music Festival, Electric Zoo and more, his list of performances goes on, from mainstage festivals to intimate club nights. This summer, he is preparing for tons of exciting shows, in areas such as San Francisco, Dallas and of course, Ibiza. All information could be found on his website at robbierivera.com.
With releases on Axtone, Armada, Juicy Music and Ego, it doesn’t seem like Robbie’s slowing down. In fact, he promises loads of new material on multiple labels, to be announced in the coming months!
