Pure class indeed! But who remember's their track "II"? i don't think it ever got released, i remember it was featured on Armin's radio show ASOT episode 34. Who has more info on this track? please let me know.

EDIT: Track “2” or “II” is actually Riva’s own dub mix of “Time Is The Healer”. Unfortunately this never got released :(

This Trance act is, in my opinion, one of the best I've ever heard. I know I say that about a lot of Trance producers, but it has a particularly strong meaning for this artist. I love the way House and Trance are fused together. Sometimes one more than the other, but you knew that it was always gonna work!

I love their dreamy, sexy songs. I don't have much of their original work. In fact, I only have the Morning Dust EP digitally at the moment. But I can tell you that absolutely every remix I've heard by them rock. Grab a pen, this list of Riva remixes is gonna be something you'll need to remember!! Weekend Player's "Into The Sun", Armin Van Buuren's "Yet Another Day", iiO's "Rapture", Fragma's "Say That You're Here", Dreamcatcher's "Twisted" (because the anonymous guy above really knows his stuff!), Kelli Ali's "Inferno High Love" and Marc Et Claude's "Tremble".

So there you have it. A list of Riva's highlights kindly provided by me! There's still one thing that bothers me though. Why would such an amazing talent want to stay anonymous?

These guys are a very 'unique' act, to say the least. They seem to combine two styles of dance music: House and Trance. In my opinion, this works to great effect because not only are their productions uplifting, their also quite sexy tunes aswell. What I've heard so far has been very good.

For me, I would say the highlights of their works are their remix of Fragma's "Say That You're Here", their 'Bora Bora' remake of their own "Who Do You Love Now" and also their remix of Dreamcatcher's "Twisted". So if you're into House and Trance, you absolutely must check Riva out! Spin some of Riva's music and your friends will love you for it!
