Out Now Magazine Spotlight series featuring Rivessi for an interview
Where are you from?
I was born and raised in south east London, however now I am living up in Lincolnshire.
When did you start making music?
I first grew a passion for playing piano when I was around 7 years old. I fell in love with my creative side and enjoyed coming up with new melodies. Over time I ended up moving on to using production software where I experimented with creating different styles of music. I spent quite a significant amount of my free time in school at the studio. It really was my dream.
How do you describe your music?
I think there is so many different ways to describe the music I create. I love making many different styles from deep house to future or tech house. I love all kinds of EDM music and I enjoy experimenting with different styles. I think that is what my aim was with my upcoming track ‘Say Goodbye’. I wanted to mix different styles of house including tech and future house and I believe I captured them well in this track. It comes out on 12th May on all platforms.
Favorite moment from your career?
My favorite moment so far is being given the opportunity to work with Brøder on a few tracks already. Our first track released on March 11th 2022 and we have a second collab coming June 3rd. Brøder are fantastic producers and awesome to work with.
Who is your biggest musical inspiration?
I do not really have one main inspiration but I think some of my favorite producers that I look up to are Disclosure, Joel Corry and Goodboys.
What is your producing software?
At the moment I use FL Studio but I have also worked with Ableton.
What other things do you do besides making music?
Other than producing music I work on PR for other artists, models, influencers and anyone who wishes to gain some public attention through the media.
What is your favorite track of all time?
I do not have a specific favorite track of all time, however I do have a favorite at the moment as of writing this which is ‘Need You’ by Jewels.
What are your goals for the future?
My goals are to always keep improving on my music and hopefully collaborate with a wider variety of artists and producers.
What advice can you give for young music producers/DJs?
My best advice is to accept and appreciate criticism. In the beginning you have to understand that your music will not be the best it can be. There may be some things that need fixing or do not sound great. You will be turned down by multiple labels and told plenty of times that your music needs work. It’s about listening to all the criticism and using it to improve on your work.
