Bio


Robbie Rivera, born in 1973 in San Juan, Puerto Rico, had his first encounter with music when he was only 10-years-old. Buying records from acts like New Order, Depeche Mode and U2, it wasn’t long before he started spinning records. “I was 13 and had two turntables and a mixer,” he says. “I did not know what beat mixing was until it happened accidentally. I taught myself.”

While improving upon his mixing skills, he took his first steps in producing music the old fashioned way. Said Rivera, “When I was about 15 years old, the richer kids had the instruments. One of my friends let me use his Roland drum machine all the time and he eventually gave it to me. I also had a real drum kit in my room.” Steadily, he moved on. “I was sequencing beats at 16 and doing my own edits of tracks using a two track reel-to-reel machine.” He continues, “Yes, it was real tape-splicing editing, back the! Definitely not computer kid’s stuff!”

In 1992, Robbie moved to Miami, and in 1996, he released his first record, a real Latin house track on Juicy Music, titled, “El Sorrullo.” The track lead to an endless string of productions which were released on established labels like Subliminal, Filtered, Positiva, Mos, Azuli and Strictly Rhythm. His music was licensed everywhere. “My track, ‘Bang,’ was my first crossover hit, and cuts like “Sex” and “Funkatron” were huge for me at that time. I consider it a highlight in my career that ‘Funkatron’ was used for the closing of the Victoria’s Secret winter fashion show on CBS-TV, while ‘Bang’ reached #13 on the UK charts and made it to the ‘Top 10′ in Australia.”

All of this success pushed Rivera towards an important step. He said, “I had to continuously shop my music everywhere, and I got tired doing that. That’s the reason, in 1998, I officially established my own label, Juicy Music.” The label also gave Rivera the tools to identify Juicy Music’s philosophy. In Rivera’s own words, the Juicy Music sound is, “Tough, sexy, house music!” Nineteen-ninety-eight was also the fortuitous year Rivera wed his long-time sweetheart and current business partner, Monica Olabarrieta. Together, they run the Juicy Music imprint.

Rivera’s first big name remix for Faithless, “Bring My Family Back,” introduced him to an ever growing audience. Many remixes followed, and artists like Felix Da Housecat, Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Gabriel & Dresden, Moloko, Bob Sinclar, Benny Benassi, Sinead O’Connor, Ferry Corsten, Ricky Martin, Santana, Steve Angello, Coburn, Superchumbo, David Guetta, Tocadisco, Pink and Basement Jaxx came clamoring to enlist Rivera’s prowess.

Rivera released his first artist album, Do You Want More, which became an acclaimed success. The cut, “Which Way You’re Going” hit the Billboard chart, while his big room anthem, “Float Away” (re-released in 2007) became a global big-seller.

In 2008, Rivera’s appropriately titled second artist album, Star Quality, was cruising on the dance charts and was picked up for major global releases later that year. The album included, “Back to Zero” and “Move, Move,” two tracks that were favored by fellow big hitters such as David Guetta, Paul van Dyk, Tiësto and Rivera himself, whose crowds sing along to the melodies. The two huge tunes gained traction at WMC (Winter Music Conference) and went on to have music fans humming all summer as they appeared on that year’s most popular mix compilations: Cream mixed by van Dyk, F*** Me I’m Famous by Guetta, Pure Pacha by Pete Tong, Gatecrasher, and Juicy Ibiza mixed by Robbie Rivera. Other releases like, “Aye, Aye, Aye” feat. C+C Music Factory, “One Eye Shut” feat. Laura Vane, and “Escape,” also form part of Rivera’s impressive repertoire since their release.

Rivera’s distinctive brand of sexy, pounding, dirty, electro-tinged house music ignites dance-floors across the globe, while the world’s top artists queue up to have Robbie put his sound to their tracks. Touring nonstop, Rivera’s music regularly packs dancefloors throughout Ibiza, Barcelona, South America, Poland, Puerto Rico, NYC, Brazil, Los Angeles, Chicago, London, Asia, Italy, Tunisia, Canada, Moscow, Australia, Vienna, and of course, his hometown of Miami.

An unabashed workaholic, Rivera is busy in his recording studios when not touring. He incorporates the sounds he hears on-the-road into his music. But the jewel in Rivera’s crown is his label, Juicy Music. Juicy Music’s roster includes artists as diverse as: Antoine Clamaran, Coburn, Superchumbo, Mark Knight, David Guetta, Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso, Stonebridge, and emerging talent, such as Willie Morales, Paul Harris, Louie Padilla, Rooster & Peralta, and DMS12.

Since 2005, Rivera and his wife and business partner, Monica, have been the driving forces behind the world-renown Juicy Beach party at WMC in Miami each March. The 17-hour events at Nikki Beach Club attract a cast of over 7,500 clubbers as well as A-list DJs, and the party has gone on to become one of the week’s most successful events. Likewise, the Juicy Ibiza parties in Ibiza welcomed up to 6,000 clubbers at Amnesia’s beautiful terrace in years past and at Privilege in 2009. The Juicy brand is expanding to new territories, including: within the U.S. (i.e. New York, Los Angeles, Chicago); the UK; and Spain, with new locations being added.

Rivera was voted “Best House Producer” by Beatport and “Best Remixer” by the IDMA Awards (International Dance Music Awards) in 2008. In 2009, Rivera released the fourth Juicy Ibiza compilation, and the release hit the ‘Top 5′ in iTunes sales globally, buoyed by the record deals with Black Hole Recordings and Ultra Records. With a residency at Privilege in the summer of 2009, Rivera saw success with the release of his latest artist album, Closer To The Sun (Ultra/Black Hole). The album garnered critical praise and a great deal of media attention within the U.S. and internationally, with hit singles that included “Closer To The Sun,” “Let Me Sip My Drink” feat. Fast Eddie, “Rock The Disco” and “We Live For The Music.” Those tunes succeeded at radio, on the dancefloor, and also thrived amongst fellow DJs in their respective record crates. Additionally, Rivera’s remixes for Nelly Furtado’s “Manos Al Aire” and Basement Jaxx’s “Raindrops” have also been hammered by Tiësto, Yazz, and the Plastik Population. It’s 2010, and of his plans for the rapidly approaching future, Robbie Rivera has only this to say, “I’ll keep making quality music! Period.”

Opening Set by Pleasurekraft

Thursday April 14, 2011 at Lima Restaurant & Lounge
1401 K St NW Washington DC
Doors Open at 10pm, Ages 18+

Show Preview


From: USA (NYC)

Style: House music in all its forms, always sexy

Famous Tracks: Another Chance, Lost, 2gether, Free, Bang that Box

Best Known For: Long sets, sexy crowds and hands in the air

DJ Mag Rank: 64

2010 saw a host of new high-profile collaborations with the likes of Afrika Bambaataa, Maroon 5, Natalia Kills, and… Danny from McFly.

The Release Yourself Ibiza club night at Amnesia also celebrated ten slick, successful years, signalling an island resurgence for Sanchez. Live shows (featuring numerous spins of his chunky, B-52s-sampling single ‘2Gether’) have been a staple part of the last 12 months, be they his own mammoth Release Yourself sets or performances from his Stealth label roster. “This summer we did three Stealth beach parties at La Plage which were very, very sexy. That was one of my high points of the year,” he purrs.

And what of the future for a DJ with as big a sense of ambition as Sanchez? “I’m really looking forward to 2011. I’ve got a lot of big things coming with a lot of major artists.”

We wouldn’t expect anything less.

 

Bio

Head bobbing to the beat, sunglasses glinting as strobes illuminate and lasers scan the room, Roger Sanchez surveys the scene… The club is a carnival of colour… And emotion. When he’s DJing, re-edits banging, a cappellas soaring – and especially when he’s producing – the S-Man seems to create emotion out of thin air. The club is a carnival of colour… And emotion. When he’s DJing, re-edits banging, acappellas soaring – and especially when he’s producing – the S-Man seems to create emotion out of thin air and will open a world with a magical dark cabaret atmospere. Magic has the power to suspend disbelief and has been an inspiration to artists throughout the ages. No wonder, then, that the multi-award-winning artist from Queens, New York has chosen cabaret noir as the 2009 theme with magical elements to Release Yourself!

‘2009 is a year of big change for Release Yourself,’ says Roger. ‘We’ve moved our Ibiza base to Amnesia and are currently looking forward to giving clubbers a really good time out there. We’ve also been really busy shaping Release Yourself Volume 8 into something extraordinary that reflects our passion for partying and the music we love. The Pre-Party and Party selections are pretty intense, so let the fun and magic commence!’

For almost a decade Roger’s Release Yourself concept has reinvented itself – and not only as an annual compilation, cherry-picked ‘n’ mixed by the master himself to showcase what’s hot and what’s going to be hot in house. Release Yourself is also a radio show with over 1.5 million listeners, and a pioneering International Dance Music Awards (IDMA) winning podcast that can now boast over 85,000 downloads per show. Plus, as all party aficionados know, Release Yourself is a full-on cosmopolitan event that embodies Roger’s rich musical heritage, the output of his label Stealth Records and his adventurous Latin spirit. These parties are set apart by their sumptuous design and, of course, Roger’s signature marathon DJ sets.

Release Yourself club nights are renowned as some of the most epic and well produced on the party island of Ibiza. After blowing up at El Divino in 2001 the party relocated to Pacha, and from summer 2009 the show will continue every Tuesday from 23rd June at Amnesia, IDMA winner of Best Global Club for the past three consecutive years. Here you will be able to enjoy the magic and splendour of Release Yourself out on the revamped terrace of Amnesia, as Armin van Buuren’s Armada night continues its charge inside. This year Release Yourself at Amnesia in Ibiza is the base for a series of parties in Miami, London and Amsterdam.

Roger kicked off 2009 with the release of Roger Sanchez 3D, a triple mix album for Renaissance. Then there was Miami WMC, where peers such as David Guetta and even top pop sensation Ricky Martin stopped by to witness Roger’s storming seven-hour Release Yourself set at Mansion. There was also the Stealth Live! party at Set, which was probably the label’s best ever WMC event. Making Miami even more special was the sunny success of ‘I Can’t Live Without Music’ by The Transatlatins (aka Roger Sanchez and Ibiza’s DJ Oliver) featuring songstress India, on Stealth. Described by journalist Lewis Dene as ‘massive in Miami’, with ‘summer longevity assured’, ‘I Can’t Live Without Music’ went on to secure a #1 slot in the DMC Buzz Chart.

Release Yourself is taking its direction from 2009’s theme of magic, and cabaret with a dark twist – a cabaret noir. As usual the artwork is stunning and this time around is based on a photo shoot that Roger completed with the amazingly talented Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf, whose previous clients includes Diesel, Elle and The New York Times.

Next on Stealth, featuring ‘I Can’t Live Without Music’ – alongside no less than eight exclusive new tracks! – is the 2CD Release Yourself Volume 8. Part one is Roger’s Pre-Party collection. Here, making fine company for the likes of Faithless and Mike Monday, you have exclusive tracks from Tuccillo and Veerus & Maxie Devine. Roger then moves up a gear with the Party selection, where exclusives roll in from Terry Viether & Per QX, Chris Kaeser, Jesse Garcia, Tiko’s Groove, Da Hool and Zenker, and Martin Accorsi. Is it sexy and funky? Yes! Is it as emotive as it is electronic? Most definitely! Are these the biggest tracks on the dancefloor for the S-Man, with fresh international names, hot new producers and cool remixers? Hell yeah! Long live the magic of ‘El Mariachi’, and welcome to Release Yourself Volume 8!
