Riton is readying the stage for some fresh moves in 2016 with new single ‘Rinse & Repeat’. Originally surfacing to some underground attention at the end of 2015, the track has been newly mixed and mastered for white label release.
The double R attack finds the distinguished producer and DJ in peak form and sounding as vital as ever. Bringing together pumping afterhours acid house with a defiantly hedonistic club mantra recited by Lagos, Nigeria based vocalist Kah-lo, ‘Rinse & Repeat’ channels equally the exhilarating sensation of the mid-noughties dance renaissance as much as it feels like an intoxicating mirroring of its time.
Riton emerged with the Ed Banger crew as one half of Carte Blanche with DJ Mehdi, their seminal single ‘Gare Du Nord’ becoming one the biggest-selling Ed Banger releases. A series of singles and EP under his own moniker with a host of respected labels followed alongside global tours and residencies. Recent musical endeavors are as varied as co-producing Mark Ronson’s collaboration track ‘Daffodils’ with Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker, touring with Ronson on the 2014 Back To Back tour and taking part in krautrock collective Die Verboten alongside SoulWax.
Riton’s latest move found him in New York where he holed up for 6 months in an isolated studio above a dumpling factory recording new music. ‘Rinse & Repeat’ is the first track to emerge of this period of creativity ahead of more music to come, including upcoming remixes for Disclosure and Frances.
Live, you may have caught Riton hit the decks last year playing b2b to Brodinski at Busy P’s XOYO night in London, with further live slots coming up.
