Spotlight Mix: Riaz Dhanani
2017 is the break through year for London based producer Riaz Dhanani.
Having had a run of consistently strong releases, Riaz has pushed through the competitive U.K. scene to become one of the hottest prospects in the industry, building a reputation for hard bodied, energetic, peak time tracks and quoted by many as one to watch in 2017. With his tracks instantly gaining support from the likes of Groove Armada, Sidney Charles, Lee Foss, De La Swing, Anthony Attalla, Richy Ahmed and many more, Riaz has the formula that’s gained traction among some of the industry’s top names and is moving dance floors world wide.
With releases already under his belt on leading labels such as Elrow Music and Incorrect Music, 2017 kicked off with massive momentum. Riaz caught the attention of label boss Steve Lawler and released the Beatport top ten “Hot Fuse” E.P. on the mighty ViVa Music, climbing to No.4 in the Tech House chart and gaining the support of heavy hitters such as Marco Carola and Matthias Tanzmann.
Hot Creation’s top selling artist’s Solardo have picked up Riaz’s latest collaboration with Harry Ley for an upcoming release on their “Sola” imprint. The track, “Sour Apple Groove”, has become a mainstay of Solardo’s sets, with them dropping it at their “Solardo Sessions” parties at The Royal Albert Hall, Manchester and in their closing set for Abode at new London venue Printworks. You can catch Riaz playing regularly in the U.K. at venues including Ministry Of Sound, Sankeys and XOYO as well as abroad with a quarterly residency for popular Amsterdam warehouse party Binnin Plaats and a summer residency for Audio Rehab at Eden, Ibiza.
