Event Details

As the producer behind some of house music’s finest tracks, from 'Finally' and ‘Fall For You’ to ‘Changes’ - Sandy Rivera needs no introduction and we’re ecstatic to announce his first Brisbane set in over 10 years for Zen & the art of House across Oasis and La La Land. Two parties, one ticket!

As the weather begins to warm up we are hitting the water on board Oasis with one of the most highly regarded producers of his (or any other) generation, Sandy Rivera’s place in house music history is already assured. Recording under both his own name and his legendary Kings of Tomorrow moniker, Rivera’s unparalleled creativity and gift for forging timeless house records has placed him in a league of his own, without him the house landscape would boast a far less richly coloured vista. For many, Rivera will be best known for the seminal ‘Finally’, Kings of Tomorrow’s magnum opus and a record that stands as one of the finest vocal house records ever made. Released on Defected Records – ‘Finally’ still resonates more than a decade later.

However, ‘Finally’ only scratches the surface of Rivera’s exemplary catalogue. Long-players ‘The Calling’ (1997), ‘It’s In The Lifestyle’ (2000) and ‘Trouble’ (2005) demonstrate Rivera’s wide-ranging talents and ability to incorporate a vast array of stylistic influences into his music. Elements from soul, funk, disco, techno, pop and everything in between are commonplace in his records, drawing on the influences of his Puerto Rican heritage and New York upbringing to craft records that are at once familiar and utterly unique.

Collaboration has always been a key part of Rivera’s recording career, ‘SOTOM’ alongside Danish artist Noir and ‘I Remember’ with C.Castel – released on Rivera’s own Blackwiz Records – standing as recent highlights. Reach a little further back into the Rivera canon and you’ll find a sometimes-overlooked gem, EBTG & Soul Vision (Rivera and Jose Burgos) ‘Tracy In My Room’ – a truly iconic record with Soul Vision’s rolling production perfectly complimenting Tracy Thorn’s sultry vocals. Recent times have seen Sandy focus on the re-launch of his label Deep Visionz, which has gone from strength to strength with big singles such as ‘Take Away My Pain’, ‘So Good’ and ‘Closer’. 2017 kicked off with a huge single for Defected – a straight-up club smash ‘YEAH!’.

In years to come, Sandy Rivera will be looked back on as one of the true greats of the scene; a pioneering artist whose passion for house music is continually realised in the music he creates. We can’t wait to hit the water with Sandy this September for Zen & the art of House ft. Sandy Rivera. Tickets are limited and sure to fly for what is going to be another sold-out show with a true legend of the scene. Two parties, one ticket. What's not to love?!
