Artist Focus – Riton

19/09/16

Riton emerged with the Ed Banger crew as one-half of Carte Blanche with DJ Mehdi, their seminal single ‘Gare Du Nord’ becoming one the biggest-selling Ed Banger releases. A series of singles and EP under his own moniker with a host of respected labels followed alongside global tours and residencies.

Recent musical endeavours are as varied as co-producing Mark Ronson’s collaboration track ‘Daffodils’ with Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker, touring with Ronson on the 2014 Back To Back tour and taking part in krautrock collective Die Verboten alongside SoulWax.

Riton’s latest move found him in New York where he holed up for six months in an isolated studio above a dumpling factory recording new music. ‘Rinse & Repeat’ is the first track to emerge from this period of creativity ahead of more music to come, including upcoming remixes for Disclosure and Frances.
