Fresh Friday Presents: Sandy Rivera
May 9, Fri | 10pm till late
Whichever way you look at it, you know who Sandy Rivera is. Whether it's the words to 'Finally', the album you have by Kings of Tomorrow, the stunning production that infiltrates ALL the way through 'Take Me Back' or the untold mixes that have penetrated the dance charts over the past 15 years; you KNOW who Sandy Rivera is, and he shall be gracing the desks at PLAY this coming Friday.
Rewind a decade and a half - take it back to the days where dance music was underground, music was made purely from love and the future king of tomorrow was launching a label called Blackwiz. Take it back to a time when something amazing happened – a New Yorker with a Puerto Rican heritage started making records. Following a short run making hip-hop tracks and learning the piano to gain a higher level of musical understanding, Sandy dropped his first LP in 1997. Labeled 'The Calling' and featuring the man himself on vocals, it set dance floors on fire and brought with it confirmation that something very special had arrived.
Sandy's second album 'It's In The Lifestyle' came out under the Kings of Tomorrow guise and featured soon-to-be classic, 'dance music at its best' offerings including the iconic 'Finally' and the brilliant bassline infused 'Young Hearts'. The Julie McKnight vocal mixed with the outstanding production and an array of mixes catapulted 'Finally' way into the year 2000 and beyond winning a mix of awards including Muzik's prestigious Tune of the Year.
Sandy rightly became firmly positioned as a legend in the music scene and every genre of sound that surrounded it. With a set list that knows no boundaries – tech, minimal, chill-out, soulful house and progressive – never before has an appointment with the dance-floor been such a journey.
