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.
Robbie Rivera is rolling out the red carpet in Miami this March. His perennial Winter Music Conference event Juicy Beach just announced its anticipated Phase 2 lineup, adding the likes of Mord Fustang, Alex Gaudino, MYNC, and Sandro Silva to the list of artists performing at Nikki Beach Club this year. The bill already features marquee acts such as Bob Sinclar, Cosmic Gate, Moguai, and Stefano Noferini, and the Phase 3 lineup is still yet to be announced. Check out the full artist list and ticketing details here.
Robbie Rivera’s Juicy Beach has been a staple of Miami Music Week since he and his wife started the party at Nikki Beach in 2005. This year Robbie is inviting aspiring DJ/Producers to play along side Robbie and other international DJ talent during the prestigious party. The winner will also have a chance to showcase their production skills with a release on Robbie’s Juicy Music imprint.

Best of the Rest is a daily feature from Dancing Astronaut that recaps the most important posts of the day as well as the stuff we didn’t get to. With the rapidity that dance music news and releases come out it’s difficult for us to hit everything — we hope BOTR serves as a catch-all. Make sure to check it out at the end of each day to ensure you don’t miss anything!
Here at Dancing Astronaut, we strive to bring you the best of all things dance music. That’s why this week’s episode of Axis features not one, but two top-notch DJs—Robbie Rivera and Lucky Date. While Robbie is no stranger to Dancing Astronaut Radio, hosting our fourth episode back in March, Lucky Date is making his Axis debut with his signature blend of electro house. For more, click past the break.
Robbie Rivera has taken the classic “Forever Young” sample for a ride with his own electro rendition. Along with his own original mix, the official release comes packaged with remixes from Sandro Silva, Lucky Date, Victor Niglio, and most notably, PeaceTreaty. PeaceTreaty ups the ante, further electrifying Rivera’s spin with screeching synths and heavy-hitting bass to compliment the melody. Head to Beatport for Robbie Rivera’s take on “Forever Young” and explore the various remixes via Black Hole Recordings.
Governors Island has been quite busy this year. Things got off to a rough start, but Made Event quickly remedied problems the following week. Dash Berlin ended June with style and Alesso held his 21st birthday party on the island a few weeks ago. When we made our way back to the island for Juicy Beach, we knew it would be a fun-filled time.
The night was opened by Manuel de la Mare, Paige, Stefano Noferini, and EDX (who played a killer set) before Robbie Rivera took to the stage at 9PM to a decently sized crowd. There was plenty of room to dance and lots of picnic tables to rest at, creating the perfect scene to enjoy some beats from the father of all things Juicy. Check past the break for 5 tracks you need to know from Robbie’s set.
It is almost impossible to keep up with the constant influx of new music that hits our inboxes here at Dancing Astronaut but that doesn’t mean we won’t try our best to keep our loyal readers on the pulse of everything dance music related. There were two huge event announcements today from Goldenvoice and Insomniac, a unique remix of an indie classic from Robbie Rivera, a making of video featuring two of the most beautiful women in dance music today, some nu-disco gems and a radio show from none other than Thomas Gold. Read on after the break for the Best of the Rest from Tuesday, July 17th 2012.
Robbie Rivera’s Dance or Die bus tour has been taking the US by storm since it kicked off immediately after Juicy Beach during Miami Music Week. Stopping first in Atlanta, this weekend it stops in Pittsburgh, PA and Pacha in New York as it approaches its final dates.
