If you were at Lima the last time Robbie Rivera was here then we don’t even need to say anything… The people, the music, the vibe and energy… It was all there. It was easily the most packed Lima has been since Glow began calling the DC super lounge home.

He dropped everything from ‘Strings of Life’ and ‘Float Away (GnD Remix)’ to remixes of System F- Out of the Blue and Eric Prydz – Call on Me. It was just absolutely amazing. Reading the review from that set gives us goosebumps!!

This event is not to be missed. Come on out and SQUEEZE that JUICE!!!


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.”

Show Preview

One of the clear-cut crowd favorites from Electric Zoo, the #9 DJ in the world is returning to Glow this October to show DC what he’s been working on lately… chiefly his debut artist album! In the world of electronic music these days, to come out with an artist album is a major accomplishment. The business has shifted to a place where livings are earned through live performance and releases are confined to singles and EPs. Yet here is Gareth Emery, giving the people all they could ask for and more!

2010 has been a crazy year for the Garuda chief. The massive success of remixes and mash ups like ‘On a Metropolis Day,’ ‘Lonely Girl’ and the ‘classic’ status given to ‘Exposure’ by trance fans everywhere has no doubt pushed Emery further up in the pecking order of fan favorites and world class DJ/Producers.

But these tracks are nothing compared to his new album. Northern Lights is going to be… going to be… we’re not even sure what to say!! Go to the music section and check it out for yourself!!!



To say Gareth Emery has had a good year would be a vast understatement. Over the past twelve months, the popularity and buzz surrounding the young Brit reached explosive proportions, culminating in him being voted no.9 in 2009’s definitive DJ Mag Top 100 poll: one of only a handful of DJs to crack the world’s top ten before the age of 30.

Was this down to producing pure club anthems like Exposure and Metropolis alongside stunning remixes for Armin van Buuren and Above & Beyond, all of which led to him spending more time at the top of Beatport’s trance chart than any other artist in ‘09? Maybe it was the launch of his new Garuda label and club night, responsible for selling out Manchester’s iconic Sankeys club four times in a row whilst releasing his critically acclaimed compilation ‘The Sound Of Garuda’. Or perhaps it was the sheer amount of people he played to, banking half a million air miles travelling to over one hundred gigs at some of the world’s finest clubs and festivals. Whatever the reason, one thing is for certain: he’s on fire like never before.

Of course, what seems like ‘overnight’ success is usually the result of years of hard work, and Gareth Emery is no exception. He started learning the piano at 4, and whilst he’d completed his classical music training before he’d finished school, his real interest lay elsewhere, initially in guitar-based sounds. This was the UK in the mid-90s with Britpop and indie the order of the day, although as one might expect, Emery was no slouch, following the footsteps of Green Day and Oasis by headlining Southampton’s legendary Joiners venue at the age of just 15 with his band at the time. But it was a chance trip to Ibiza in 1998 that opened his eyes to the appeal of dance music, and after spending the next three years learning to make music with computers and midi, rather than guitars and pianos, he wrote his first electronic classic: the seminal ‘Mistral’, famously made whilst on holiday in France on a £500 laptop. Plenty more were to come.

These days, his records (which are composed, produced, and engineered entirely by him), span the worlds of trance, progressive, electro, techno, and a few other places. Languid, spacey grooves, juddering basslines and original melodies that take your breath away mean that it’s a given that Armin, Tiesto, Oakenfold, and Judge Jules have all been fully paid-up members of the Emery fan club for years. But more importantly, he’s firmly established as one of those rare producers who values quality over quantity, preferring to make five amazing records in a year then twenty average ones, and even happily refusing to release a track if it doesn’t feel “just right”, to the occasional frustration of his fans. It’s this uncompromising attitude, that drive for something unattainably perfect, that has made him one of the most sought-after producers and remixers on the planet.

But if there’s one place where he’s even more at home than in his studio, it’s behind the decks, where he’s morphed into the consummate superstar DJ, unequivocally demolishing dancefloors the world over. From global superclubs like Zouk in Singapore and Guvernment in Toronto, to epic festivals like Global Gathering, Trance Energy and Dance Valley, to the mega-brands like Ministry of Sound and Godskitchen, the utterly unique, instantly recognisable Emery sound continues to pack out more clubs, in more places across the world, than ever before.

The rise of Gareth Emery to dance music’s premier league has been untraditional in almost every sense, and looking at his career, one gets the feeling he almost likes being the underdog. In 2009, when he was advised against launching his Garuda club night in the midst of one of the harshest recessions in living memory, he went ahead regardless, going on to totally sell-out every Garuda party that year. He also chose the road less travelled in 2006, when he turned down numerous offers from established radio stations to instead experiment with a virtually unknown format known as podcasting. It was a gamble that paid off, as four years and 100 episodes later, The Gareth Emery Podcast is now one of the most popular and influential dance music downloads in the world, with Emery’s famously diverse track selection and charismatic broadcasting style resulting in TGEP being nominated for ‘Best Podcast’ at the Miami Winter Music Conference IDMA Awards three years running.

Having also eschewed the lure of corporate major labels since the beginning, (almost all of his singles have been released on his own imprints), he’s living proof that you can amass a truly global following with little more than the power of the internet and some outstanding music. With millions of viewers on YouTube and legions of fans on Facebook, Twitter and Myspace, he’s a modern artist in every sense of the word; one with his finger truly on the pulse of the globalised, digitised planet we now inhabit. He sums it up in a recent interview: “At the start, there was no helping hand: I had no record deal, no money, and no idea about how to make my way in the music business. Basically I was just a kid from Southampton, who was making half-decent music on some very cheap equipment, and told people to check it out. The rest just sort of happened”. Inspirational stuff for talented kids everywhere.

With a list of achievements already far surpassing most DJs ten years his senior, Gareth Emery could easily sit back and be content with his lot, but you get the feeling that won’t be happening. After seeing his Garuda brand become the hottest label and club night launch in recent years (the quantity of Garuda t-shirts you now see at Emery gigs is testament to that), his plans for the next year are firmly rooted in the studio, where he’s determined to finally finish his long-anticipated artist album. “2009 was really all about Garuda. I started the year without a real home for my music, and now I’ve got one – as well as our Manchester residency which really was the surprise success of the year. But whilst Garuda has some amazing releases and nights lined up for 2010, for me, the next year’s all about finishing my album. I’ve been promising it since 2006, and whilst making a LP is undoubtably challenging when you spend half of your life abroad touring, I’m determined to put everything aside to finally nail it this year”.

At just 29, Gareth Emery’s well on the way to conquering the electronic music world, and if he finally cracks that artist album, he might just do it. Whatever happens though, 2010’s set to be a big one, as the worldwide Garuda massive eagerly await to see what’s coming next from this uniquely talented artist. We can’t wait – see you on the dancefloor.
