Exclusive Premiere: Riven – Blue Panther (Time Has Changed)

Artist: Riven
Title: Disco Acid EP (Ft VONDA7 and Beatamines Remixes)
Label: Time Has Changed
Released: 22nd September 2017
Genre: House / Techno

Luxembourg’s Riven makes his debut release on Timid Boy’s Time Has Changed label with his powerful ‘Disco Acid EP’, containing 3 original new tracks, along with 2 stellar remixes from VONDA7 and Beatamines. ‘Disco Acid’ is ripe with cleverly crafted beats that percolate under Riven’s infectious 303 sorcery, teased with cut up vocals. ‘Blue Panther’ is a techy ride, loaded with a dark sub-bass and menacing voices and ‘Jungle Ride’ is a pressure driven house groove armed with an intense, long tension building breakdown to devastate the floor! On the ‘Disco Acid’ remixes, VONDA7 cooks up an edgy, driving Techno feast with acid undercurrents and Beatamines works the room with his bubbling effervescent tech style.

“It sounds like playing Pac Man on an old arcade machine… on acid” – Riven

Thierry Loesch, aka Riven, is one of Luxembourg’s premier underground dance music artists known for hypnotising every club he spins at with his dark, techy vibes. He started out Djing on the local Luxembourg scene in 2008 and then, together with his friend Pierre Bellion, founded the Lauter Unfug Label and events company which quickly became one of the most proliferating Underground Music brands in Luxembourg and features many international artists. Riven’s residency at the Lauter Unfug events has lead to gigs at clubs like Kosmonaut, Trésor, Ritter Butzke in Berlin, Silodom in Saarbrücken and festivals including the Amsterdam Dance Event, Amphitronic and Nature One and e-lake. In 2016 and in 2017, he was voted as “Best Electronic Music DJ” by Luxembourg’s main nightlife awards. As a producer, Riven’s productions have been supported by top heavyweight jocks and his ‘Acid Break EP’ (incl. Timid Boy and Tyree Cooper remixes) in 2016 hitting the Beatport Top 10 Charts. Riven is busy in the studio working on some new projects and his next Lauter Unfug release, ‘Purple Palms EP’, features a remix from Raumakusik.
