First up, Riva delivers a driving and energetic mashup of DJ Roland Clark's "The First Time" and Paul C & Paolo Martini's "Take Some Time." Frenetic percussion in the top end and futuristic FXs create a party-focused pace as the dubby atmospheres and pumping beats add the power and momentum. The ghetto-funk vocal adds another dimension to make this Riva's own personal homage to the history of house music. The raw edit of "Chasing Autumns" by Taras Van De Voorde continues that exploration further, tapping into a unique mix of classic sounding house with rich piano chords and emotive strings; and a modern, raw sounding warehouse energy that burns and stomps away underneath.
Taking things into a much deeper hue, Riva with his colourful edit of Luca Morris' "Play By Play." Built around subtly shifting melodies, a deep, rolling bassline and tumbling drums, the track shuffles forward with bags of personality and charisma. Intoxicating and heady, this one will keep heads down whilst infiltrating the feet. Riva's edit of Rino Cerrone & Flavio Diaz's "Extraordinary Wiring" is a dizzying, head-spinning workout that swirls and shakes with an unsteadying disposition. Funky drums interplay with highly distorted synths and mechanical sounding basslines to create a sound that is at once playful, addictive and unstoppable.
