Riva Starr - Naples Play Bass EP
July 8th saw House music’s sharp shooting DJ/producer Riva Starr return to his acclaimed Snatch! Records imprint with his brand new EP entitled, ‘Naples Play Bass’.
“Naples is my native city and it’s been an enormous influence on my music over the years and still is. I really wanted to pay homage, so I’ve gone back to my roots and aimed to make this EP reflect the same energy and vibe of my beautiful city.” Riva Starr
This vibrant two-track EP sees the London-based Italian-born DJ/producer continue his fine form and deliver another exceptional offering, following recent appearances on revered imprints such as Damian Lazarus’ Crosstown Rebels, Jamie Jones’ Hot Creations, Green Velvet’s Cajual Records, Matthew Dear’s Spectral Sound and Matthias Tanzmann’s Moon Harbor Recordings amongst others.
The EP’s lead track ‘Hagakure’ kicks off proceedings, taking the listener on a funk-driven journey full of looped-up disco-tinged House samples, warped sound effects and powerful bass frequencies.
‘Nite Like This’ is next up and concludes the release, boasting a distinctive summery sounding House groove with an alluring filtered chord-riff and a never-been-heard-before vocal, which was recorded in the late 2000s, from the legendary late, great Daft Punk collaborator Romanthony.
All in all, both tracks complement each other perfectly and make another fine addition to Snatch’s already potent repertoire. ‘Naples Play Bass’ EP is exclusively available via Beatport from July 8th and the rest of the world two weeks later.
