Biografie
Traditionally known for his Kosmiche tinged Electro-Techno sound, championed at his Space Ibiza residency and as part of the extended Ed Banger crew and tour DJ for Radio Soulwax, it might come as a surprise to learn that Riton has released a Mix Tape Album called 'Can't Stop The Clock.' But actually this aesthetic has long been a weapon of choice for Riton "I think it's because I always loved the sampling aesthetic. It still interests me the fact you an make a song without playing one note. I don't think anybody had ever come up with a more radical and punk way to make a song to date. I started buying Dance Records around the time when guys like MAARS would make a track from 100 bits of other records. In this sense 'Can't Stop The Clock' was a kind of a reverse Mix-tape cos normally you might find rappers using other people's beats and samples to showcase there vocals, whereas I had the vocals I wanted and built new instrumentals around them.
So I think that adds a new twist!"

Available exclusively at https://soundcloud.com/ritontime 'Can't Stop The Clock' comprises of 12 tracks made up of original music, built around some of Riton's favourite pieces of music. "Anyone who's been listening to a lot of these Hip-Hop/Urban mix-tapes over the past few years will have noticed that, more often than not, they are better than the actual artist LPs. When you start a project that you know you can't sell you are empowered by musical freedom. It becomes a non-commercial work of love, because you have nobody to satisfy other than yourself. I essentially wanted to make a bunch of songs I would play out in the clubs and got to pick the vocals I loved or just thought I could have some fun with.
