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.
Bringing together pumping after-hours 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.
This is massive for 2016 coming straight from the underground clubs to the mainstream scene. The fist huge club banger and a dance anthem for the summer that’s ahead.
