Saturday 7 September
Riva Starr [LIVE at Coalition]
***11PM - LATE***
RIVA STARR at Coalition
From Glastonbury to Fuji Rock to Tommorrowland. The Riva Starr touch has been sought to open for Jamiroquai in Ibiza and to work with artists as diverse as Horace Andy, Fatboy Slim or Arthur Baker - or to remix Wiley or London Grammar. Far from
cashing in his chips for mainstream glory, however, he still beats to the pulse of the underground, throwing down back to back sets with DJ Pierre and Technasia, and rocking clubs like Warehouse Project (Manchester), El Row (Barcelona and Ibiza) and Cocoon, or heading his own label showcase at off Sonar.
In the studio he might be recording verses with Roots Manuva one day, giving the first break to artists like Pirupa on Snatch!, or persuading DJ Sneak to get on the mic. It's a free wheeling, if it feels good do it mentality that runs through his two
artist albums, 'If Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade' (2010) and 'Hand in Hand' (2013). It's also the uniting thread to a constant stream of dancefloor EPs, both under his own name and using various, long-standing aliases.
Step in to a musical journey with a man who has gained support from Giles Peterson, David Squillace, Adam Beyer and Pete Tong.
