Dance music mainstay, Robbie Rivera, returns to top form with his latest release “What To Do Now.” Featured on MTV’s Clubland, Rivera’s latest is pure pop dance from the moment its synth lead comes chiming through your speakers.

With over 75 countries represented at Tomorrowland, TomorrowWorld organizers are doing their part to ensure that diversity carries over across the Atlantic, and no stage shows as much breadth as Saturday’s Anthem Stage. Names from the UK, Sweden, Puerto Rico, Spain, Estonia, Columbia, Miami, New York, San Fransisco, Missouri and Atlanta itself are all on the bill, with musical stylings that only loosely share the progressive stamp. Whether you want to get groovy with a 20 year veteran of the scene or go hard with a not yet 20-year-old producer, go for a trouse, Brit, or a fan of the 16-bit, our guide to the Anthem Stage has got you covered.

Just a few short weeks after a star-studded Juicy Beach success, Robbie Rivera has announced he’ll be heading back to Miami to keep the party going. Rivera has signed on for 2013 residencies at LIV and Story, and will be kicking them off with an appearance at Story on April 5th. For those of us who can’t swing south in time for the first date, the house master has released a Juicy Beach mix of Faithless’ 1995 hit “Insomnia” to satisfy your taste for all things Juicy. If the mix whets instead of satisfies your appetite, purchase your tickets here.
Robbie Rivera is on a roll. Fresh off the Phase 2 announcement of his stellar Juicy Beach lineup, the Miami house icon has a new single out as a reminder that he’s just as good at providing the soundtrack to parties as he is at organizing them. “A Thousand Miles” is a top-notch production that comes in three flavors, including the soaring Robbie Rivera, Frank Caro & Alemany Mix and trance-inspired Maurizio Gubellini & Delayers Mix. Robbie Rivera’s groove-driven NYC Dub version is my personal favorite, pairing an infectious lead with crisp percussion and well-crafted builds and breakdowns. Miami Music Week can’t come soon enough. Head to Beatport in the meantime to catch this release out today on Cr2 Records.
