What's going on Dance Music Fans?! We hope you are having a kick ass start to the festival season. As you know, we love bringing you our weekly Artist of the Week series, showing you the best in the up and coming dance music world. Today, we are bringing back a REPEAT, yes, a REPEAT Artist of the Week (they're that damn good) to our series. Please help me welcome back, Booyah Riot to our featured Artist!
The group’s sixth original release is truly eargasmic. Channeling pop and deep house vibes, Booyah Riot’s “Don’t Waste My Time” is food for soul for anyone that feels their relationship is stuck.
““Our newest release was really about us continuing to learn and grow as artists, trying different genres, vibes. Whatever we feel like doing at the moment. Don’t Waste My Time was something we have all felt at one point in a relationship, so we hope other’s feel it too”
This lyric-focused track shows a softer side of this Miami-based DJ/Producer trio. It describes a woman that is confronting her partner about their level of commitment: “Take it or leave it, man up and make your move”.
Soft strings lead in with crisp vocals that move the song forward. Once the track drops, electronic, pop and deep house elements come together to deliver a groovy feel good vibe.
Though they have only been working together for a couple of years, Gio, Kong, and Wilemind have been making waves throughout many EDM circles. Previous releases, “2AM” reached #11 on the Billboard Dance Chartsand their remix of “Macy Gray’s – “I Try” was featured on EDM Sauce, By The Wavs, and Rave Rafting, to name a few.
We got an awesome chance to sit down with the trio again to ask them more about their creative process and where they delve their inspiration from:
“Ideas come to us very randomly…anytime, anywhere. If at least 2/3 of us feel it, we run with it. Sometimes it begins with a melody, sometimes with a concept, other times with a just a lyric.”
As for 2019, Booyah Riot is hoping to make a massive splashdown this Summer in the Festival Circuit:
“We had a great 2018, playing amazing gigs like XS, Lavo and Encore Beach Club as well as some amazing events like Mad Decent and No Sugar Added. In 2019, we hope to match or surpass our #11 Billboard Dance chart single “2AM” and looking to start touring…we don’t know how that works lol…so hopefully we meet someone that does soon. We love performing, we can’t wait to play our first festival, so that’s on the top of our list!”
