Torque Promotions, Bakehaus, & Be Club presents... 'I Was Drunk' ft. Riva Starr (Italy).
Dirtybird / Made To Play Records

Friday 30th April
@ Be Club
8 Commerce St.

Riva Starr IS the sound of chunky, jackin house in 2010 - and this is his debut NZ performance - this makes for an unmissable experience to say "I was drunk, at Riva Starr!"

Having remixed absolutely everything from Major Lazer to The Doors , and with last years smash 'I Was Drunk' , his great album 'If Life Gives You Lemons Make Lemonade' and beatport chart toppers such as his remix of Malente's "I Like it" and Reboots "Enjoy Music" Riva Starr is an unstoppable machine in 2010 both in the Studio and behind the decks!

The theme to this party is fairly self explanatory - a good old fashion Bavarian drink-up!!!

With a huge local lineup including:

Dick Johnson
Daniel Farley
Maya & Vanya
Mark Emerson
Beat Mafia
Ditto* Live

Riva Starr Bio:

Riva Starr is a name that should be very familiar to anyone with an interest in modern house music. Having shot to the top after a string of head turning releases and remixes on some of the most talked about labels, Riva Starr couldn’t be hotter right now. What’s quite remarkable though is how quickly Stefano Miele, aka Riva Starr has established himself so prominently on a DJ/producer circuit that’s notoriously difficult to break into. It doesn’t hurt that Claude VonStroke and Jesse Rose, the two men who sit on top of the pile, happen to be two of his biggest fans.

So, how did the man from Naples rise from unknown to major player in just 2 years? Well, the truth is that Stef is no newcomer to making music, in fact he’s been producing and releasing a wide-range of sounds under different guises for the past 10 years, including 2 albums. Like all good producers he’s earned his stripes and his current status is down to two things, hard work and talent. Having doted up his first two releases for Claude’s ‘Dirtybird’ and Jesse’s ‘Front Room’ in 2007, he followed these up with another two for them in 2008 as well as two more for Fatboy Slim’s famous ‘Southern Fried Records’ and a 12” on ‘Kindisch’, the more techy sub-label of the brilliant ‘Get Physical’ label in Berlin. As well as remixing the likes of The Gossip, Derrick Carter, KC Flight and Fatboy Slim and seeing his DJ bookings go through the roof (if you want Stef to play at your club, you’ll currently be waiting 6 months), he’s managed to rewrite the rules on how to establish yourself as an International DJ/producer.

Like all the great names in dance music the Riva Starr sound is very distinctive, with fans as wide-ranging as Tiesto, Carl Cox, Ricardo Villalobos and Annie Mac, he manages to make high quality accessible house music that unites many different styles and DJ’s. He’s always described it as “Snatch” although it was his good friend Laidback Luke that recently described his style as “Mezcla”, a universal Spanish word that’s used to describe a mixture of different things that seems to aptly apply to Stef’s music with his World influences and eclectic beats. You’ll hear throughout his upcoming album “If Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade” out on Made to Play January 2010, but mainly on the first single ‘I Was Drunk’, ‘Bulgarian Chicks’ and ‘Black Cat, White Cat’, that Stef draws inspiration from the Balkan music scene, an area of music that’s always been a personal interest. He shows his depth of knowledge by using the brilliant Noze on ‘I Was Drunk’, as well as showcasing his self-edited video that uses footage from Balkan director Kusturica (over 40,000 hits on YouTube and counting).

Earlybirds just $15 - out next week from Real Groovy or

You simply don't want to let this one pass you by - whether you're an overground or underground dance music lover, you're in for a treat.
