Defected Presents House Masters - Riva Starr

East-London's Riva Starr joins Defected's illustrious list of House Masters as he continues to establish himself as one of the world's top DJs and producers. Growing up surrounded by the rich musical culture of Southern Italy, Starr's influences come from all over; the sounds of Africa, Greece, Spain and the Balkans are ever-present within his revered house releases. Genre-wise his approach is similarly expansive, first falling for breakbeat after years of experimentation in Naples, before exploding onto the UK fidget and deep house scene in the noughties. Years later, the Snatch! owner's epic catalogue is brimming with the very best club music this side of the millennium, unrestricted by genre convention and bursting with eclectic samples and unpredictable references. This compilation features club belters alongside deeper cuts that seamlessly mix addictive vocal samples with hard-hitting house rhythms, as well as expert remixes and collaborations with fellow industry titans. Todd Terry, Mike Dunn, Groove Armada, Jocelyn Brown, Dennis Ferrer, Green Velvet, Harry Romero; the list of legendary artists that feature in Starr's eclectic discography is as endless as it is impressive, and throughout it all the Ibiza hitmaker maintains a signature sound that is distinctly Riva Starr.
