It can be said that RIOT is responsible for some of the best Portuguese electronic music. Rui Pedro Soares Da Silva Pité, better known as RIOT, is a pioneer in the zouk bass scene and has left a deserving mark on dance floors around the country and beyond. His success can be understood through the quality of his work. A RIOT DJ set is not only a journey of discovery of the most recent urban sounds but also a reference to the past, and the music he created with Branko, Kalaf, Conductor and Blaya with their band Buraka Som Sistema, a jewel of lusophone music. Their Lisbon sound, clearly influenced by the Portuguese diaspora, truly meant the invention of a new sound – under the direction of Riot, of course. It is this kind of music that seems to embrace the world that RIOT is interested in, even as a solo DJ act. From afro-house to hip hop, from Angolan kuduru to drum’n’bassas long as it makes sense you can find it all in a RIOT DJ set. Always interested in spreading the best music made in Portugal, his sets can also contain remixes, exclusive bootlegs and even versions of musicians like Carlão, Slow J, MGDRVBuraka themselves and others. His is a journey without limits, aimed at seducing audiences with different musical sensitivities. Just a few minutes into his set are enough to realise RIOT truly achieves his aim.
