SONG OF THE DAY: Rivaz – “#1 (Colors)” 

When you get a track as epic and beautiful as Rivaz “Colors,” you just know there will be a vocal version coming.   The track has been buzzing since Winter Music Conference, and when we first heard the uplifting and euphoric track, we had flashbacks to the first time we heard “Children” or “Sunchyme.”  A major record at Ibiza this summer, vocalist Corrine does the topline duty, singing about her personal empowerment being a desirable woman standing out from the crowd of women out there.  Yeah, that’s kind of elevating the lyrical theme, but let’s just go with that.  Corrine sounds like a cross between Rihanna and the singer from Karmin- with a touch of Bebe Rexha.  For a tougher tribal take with a bit more of a big room electro vibe, check out Robbie Rivera’s remix. While on the Rivaz tip, be sure to check out two other tracks he did this summer, “Tell Me Twice” with Benny Benassi and Heather Bright, as well as his remix of “Boom Boom” by Ray Foxx and Rachel K Collier.

INTERVIEW: Nari and Milani (2013)

When you talk to an Italian DJ/producer, you can feel their passion and love for the music.  Italian duo Antonio Romeo and Maurizio Zoffoli started working together in 1996 under different pseudonyms.  Back in 2003, they launched the Nari and Milani name and have achieved success with hit singles (“Let it Rain” and “I Got You”), remixes, and a solid DJ touring schedule.  Their weekly radio program “I’ll House You” is available on their Soundcloud page and is definitely worth subscribing to.

RS: How did the two of you meet up?
Nari: We met at a radio show, Ronni was a host and so was I. We both lived in the same city and had the same passion for music. Years later we found that we worked well together and decided to create and produce music.

RS: You worked with R3hab and MYNC on the new “Miami” track, how did that come about?
Nari: At the time that we decided to make the track we were in Europe, R3hab was on tour in Australia, and MYNC was on tour in America so we connected on Skype. We made the track, MYNC made the melody, and R3hab rebuilt the track and it was finished in 21 days.
