NY’s Robbie Rivera has been releasing house music for a good number of years. In recent times, he’s put out the sort of powerful grooves that have put much of his earlier material to shame. A number of his cuts feature on Juicy Ibiza 2009, an electro and synth kissed house compilation celebrating his weekly residency at the Privilege club on the Balearic island. The Rivera highlight on disc one is the questioning Escape, as remixed by Jochen Pash and Norm, whilst the choice non Rivera offering is Jonas Steur’s remix storming of Micah ’N’ Schmitz featuring Aubrey’s Rush. The Rivera winner on disc two is his fine collaboration with Dero entitled Batacuda, with another high coming in the shape of the John Dahlback Remix of Santiago Cortes featuring Samantha Fox’s sweet Touch Me. This is a no nonsense set of big room material from Rivera and friends.
