Italian DJ/producer Riva Starr is back, dropping a massive new release out on Green Velvet’s hot imprint, Cajual Records.

With two prior albums under his belt, a myriad hit singles, and owner of Snatch! Records, the man is certainly a force to be reckoned with.  Known for his quirky flavor and eclectic style, the London-based artist truly does define his unique sound with this album. Gravitating towards more of a club approach, Definition of Sound does not disappoint.  Get ready for 11 stellar, dancefloor commanding tracks, full of groove-laden vibes and earth shattering bass that’ll get your body moving and speakers popping.

Funky and powerful, “In the Midnight Hour” is full of heavy-hitting bass and deliciously soulful vocals by Dajae. “Can You Feel the Sunshine” has more of a disco feel, comprised of uplifting piano melodies and energetic vocals.   Deep and infectious, “You’re Beating” features label-boss Green Velvet, delivering some seriously sexy bass that makes souls smile and bodies groove.  “Without You” will hypnotize you with its sultry vocals layered over blissful strings and mesmerizing beats. Riva brilliantly closes out the album featuring some of Chi-town’s finest – Gene Farris in “After Dark” and infuses DJ Pierre’s quintessential acid house sounds in “Acid Train”.

So go ahead, give it a play, and go dancing into the night.
