Snafu New Years Special - RIVASTARR



2nd January

Doors 11pm

Riva Starr - aka Stef Miele - couldn't be hotter right now. It doesnt hurt that Claude VonStroke and Jesse Rose, the two men who sit on top of the pile, happen to be two of his biggest fans.

Having doted up his first two releases for Claudes Dirtybird and Jesses Front Room in 2007, he followed these up with another two in 2008 as well as two more for Fatboy Slims Southern Fried Records and a 12 on Kindisch, the more techy sub-label of the brilliant Get Physical label in Berlin.

The Riva Starr sound is very distinctive, often carrying that gypsy spirit, drawing influence from Balkan folk/rock. He describes his sound as Snatch!, although his good friend Laidback Luke recently described his style as Mezcla, a Spanish word used to describe a mixture of different things, which aptly applies to Stefs sound, with his World influences and eclectic beats. Youll hear it throughout his upcoming album If Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade out on Made to Play in January, especially on the first single I Was Drunk, which features the self-edited video using footage from Balkan director Kusturica, raking up over 40,000 hits on YouTube. The Balkan sound is just one style that Riva Starr is known for, and throughout his set youll hear many twists and turns for that proper Mezcla experience.

Tickets available from Ticketweb, One-up and The Athenaeum
