Artist and Release information &rt;&rt;&rt;
Every once in a while a new producer just smashes their way through into the big time.
That's what's happening with Riva Starr's sneak-in-and-blow-the-place-up approach. A
talent whose music works for the kids as well as the European elitists, Riva seems to
have burst onto the scene fully formed, and injected a shot of adrenalin directly into our
Having already released EP’s on both Made to Play and sister label Front Room the ‘If
Life Gives you Lemons, Make Lemonade’ EP serves as a tantalizing prequel to his debut
artist album out later this year.
Luring us toward the goods like a veteran gypsy stealing your wallet, this spicy
concoction of Balkan beats rubbing elbows with the best elements of tech house weaves
an intoxicating spell to say the least. Definitely in keeping with the cheeky spirit of “Black
Cat White Cat” the cult film set on the Danube to which the B side nods to, this is booty
shaking dance floor crack that you’ll find yourself begging, stealing and borrowing to get

basically so much fun it should be illegal.
Made to Play continues to showcase strains of house music that haven’t even been
invented yet. Prepare for immediate Riva Starr infection and watch this space for his
debut artist album on Made to Play arriving hot on the heels of this EP in January 2010.
