46 Robbie Rivera

 

We recently had the distinct honour of working with a legend of dance music. A true innovator of styles and veteran on the scene, Puerto Rico native Robbie Rivera is just about to drop 'Sexy Anytime', a massive new jam with Billy W on Juicy Music. Not only did we get to chat with Robbie, but he also dropped a very nice mix of some new goodness, ladies and gentlemen, Fingers on Blast #72 by Robbie Rivera!


-First of all thank you so much for taking the time to chat with us. What has been keeping you busy lately? 


Hi! Lately I've been working like a mad man in the studio and boosting my label Juicy Music with new releases every other week. 


-What’s a typical day like in the life of Robbie Rivera, on tour or at home, if there were such a thing? 

 

Monday to Thursday I wake up at 8am and go to the gym. The rest of the day is divided between making music and speaking to my agents about tours, press, releases etc. By 5:30pm my dog Roxy is staring at me for a walk. By 6:30 I leave the studio and meet my wife with friends for dinner or hangout. Friday I leave for shows till Sunday

-There's a lot of debate about the state of dance music lately, do you have an opinion on where it's headed?  How does it feel to see something you’ve been a part of for so long become so internationally massive? 

There's definitely a debate of what is the next genre that will take over and get saturated... Well, I hope this does not happen! Right now it's great because many producers are finally being original and are producing great electronic music, while others are still producing the same commercial sound that, well, has already been done. I think 2015 will be all about house music, deep house, tribal house, progressive house and techno. The response electronic music has had on radio in the past few years feels great. Let’s see what happens in 2015.

-How do you stay inspired?  What keeps you going? 

The fans inspire me and keep me going. I have been around for awhile and I feel like 2015 is going to be a great year for me musically. My job is awesome, but it's not easy. There is a lot of competition but this helps me as well!


-What are your favorite cities to play in?  Is there anywhere you haven’t been that you would love to go? 

Some of my favorite places to play: Ibiza, Miami, Los Angeles, Chicago, London, Buenos Aires, Puerto Rico.  I would like to perform in Japan as I have not been there yet.

-Thanks so much for chatting with us, is there anything else we need to know?

Thanks to my fans for all their support, and make sure to pick up "Sexy Anytime" on Beatport December 8!

 

"Sexy Anytime" will be out on December 8th through Juicy Music.
