DJ OF THE WEEK 7.19.10: RIVA STARR

Riva Starr, born Stefano Miele in Naples, Italy, is quite possibly one of the most Internet savy DJ’s in the game right now. A product of the digital age, he was online hustling his own unique remixes of popular music before he was old enough to get in a club. These mixes, which he actively shared on the net via blogs, forums, social networks, and more, caught the attention of big names DJ’s, and it wasn’t long before the young man was partaking in the real social networks of the clubs.

Over the last few years, Riva Starr has been busy building his name as a top remixer, having reworked tracks such as “F**k Me I’m Famous”, “La Mezcla”, “Hey Hey”, and many more. Lest you think Starr is simply some button smashing computer DJ, then I suggest you become familiar with his own works. Riva Starr is single-handedly infusing House with an entirly new sound that is causing a stir in the scene. Drawing inspiration from Italian folk, Balkan, and Bulgarian music among others, makes for some unique and funky, and danceable tracks, that are simply setting Riva Star apart from the norm, if not setting him apart as one of the most fun and creative DJ’s out there. Just listen to his songs, “I was Drunk”, or “Splendido” (video below), and we’re sure you’ll agree.

Riva Starr is the type of personality you simply can’t speak enough about, you just have to enjoy his music to know what he’s really about, so aside from the mix, we’re throwing in a video as well. Enjoy.
