Get to Know SHIP FACED Headliner, Robbie Rivera
New York City yacht cruises are rather ubiquitous, the infamous, glittering New York City skyline an irresistible attraction for New York natives and “Big Apple” visitors alike. What will set the sixth annual SHIP FACED luxury boat party apart from fellow yacht cruises of its own kind is not its metropolitan location, the sprawling views, or the caliber of the 1,200 capacity ship—however glamorous—but the world famous live entertainment provided by the boat, affectionately known as the “Juicy Boat.”
SHIP FACED will be headlined by house music aficionado, Robbie Rivera, a producer determined to carve a musical niche for himself in his early breakthrough in the dance music industry, and a figure that accordingly did, and continues to do just that with each release. Think “Go Down,” Rivera’s most recent single that debuted on Armada Subjekt, a label that “the finest in House call home.” The deliciously rhythmic track serves as a sample of what remains to come on the Juicy Boat when Rivera’s tunes will prove a musically smooth sail for all aboard.
A “prolific” producer of house music, the name “Robbie Rivera” bespeaks a catalogue of releases, both original and re-imaginations of original tracks. The Puerto Rican born DJ claims a funk/tribal twist in his house music, elements that set Rivera’s music apart from other DJs similarly working within the genre. Rivera’s sound is frequently defined by his incorporation of Latin elements, in accordance with his roots.
Evolving from playing weddings and “school” events in his early youth, Rivera has advanced to engineer tracks on the industry’s best labels, including the likes of Spinnin’ Records, Armada, Axtone, Juicy Music, Doorn, and Ultra Records. His self explanatory “tagline,” “House Music All Night Long” conveys Rivera’s commitment to the engineering of house tunes both unique and innovative in nature, furthermore indicating his musical specialty.
