Casa Vida Presents Boxing Day Business
2019 hasn’t quite finished for Casa Vida, although it has been our busiest and most successful year by far. Boxing Day see’s us return to our night club home of Cambridge Fez club. In the early years the Fez gave Casa Vida the opportunity to grow our brand and in that time we brought some of worlds biggest DJ’s and producers to the city. What better way to close our year by returning to where it all began and with one of the rising stars on the UK house scene Riaz Dhanani our headliner.
Introducing Riaz Dhanani:
A name steadily rising up out of the mixing pot of modern Tech-House; Riaz Dhanani is a London based artist that has come on leaps and bounds in recent years. Known for his fresh and intuitive approach to production, which has already been advocated by some of the game’s biggest hitters.
An artist that may appear relatively new on the scene in comparison to others, Riaz has been grinding away in the background for quite some time. He has carved his way through the competitive UK scene with a plethora of credible releases and is now widely regarded as one of the industry’s hottest prospects.
His need for creating robust, peak-time jams is a hunger that is becoming apparently untameable; his release catalogue already includes the likes of VIVa Limited, Defected, ElRow Music, Lost Records, NoExcuse and several other commendable outlets along with inclusion on several compilation albums.
Add to that foundation of quality productions, a strong wave of support from artists such as Marco Carola, Solardo, Matthias Tanzmann, Groove Armada, Sidney Charles, Lee Foss, De La Swing, Anthony Attalla, Richy Ahmed and many more; Riaz’s tracks have rightly gained him exposure on a virtually global scale with his flag being flown by many of the industry’s most respected professionals.
Very much like himself, Riaz’s ‘District 9’ imprint has also hit the ground running. With releases from Davina Moss, Mirco Caruso and Anek already gracing the label; the future is looking extremely bright for both the label and Riaz.
Riaz still has so much more to give, with upcoming releases on Sola, Roush, NONSTOP, Under No Illusion to name but a few, along with playing regularly in the U.K. at venues including Ministry Of Sound, Sankeys and XOYO as well as abroad with a quarterly residency for popular Amsterdam warehouse party Binnin Plaats and a summer residency for Audio Rehab at Eden, Ibiza.
