From dropping his 'In The House' compilation back in 2010 to the infectious 'Raw Feel' in 2016, Riva Starr and Defected's relationship has been both a long and fruitful one. Joining us at many of our parties over the years, including our inagural Defected Croatia festival in Tisno, Riva is an extremely talented DJ with a truly unique sound. Something that can be heard from the releases on his much-loved Snatch! imprint, which continues to go from strength to strength, with hot new releases from the likes of Dennis Cruz, Mat.Joe and Riva himself. With new tracks incoming and a whole host of tour dates around the world, 2017 is already shaping up to be another huge year for East London-based Stefano Miele.
Riva Starr: "Defected is a long standing mainstay in house music, always repping it no matter what! I always have so much fun when I play Defected events, as the crowd is always well up for it, open-minded and I always get great a response when I release my tunes/remixes through the imprint. The promotion is great and the crew is made up of professionals that actually have fun hanging out together and this is priceless. Big ups to Simon for building such an entity."
