ABOUT THE TALENT
Riton (Henry Smithson), a DJ, remixer, and producer, is considered one of the most established talents in Europe. Consistently bumping low end and lush, rhythmic keys, smoothly tying in hip-hop, he has collaborated with artists from M.I.A. to Kylie Minogue and consistently provides energetic live performances. This year, he released “Rinse & Repeat,” a tech-house banger, featuring Lagos / New York vocalist Kah-Lo, topping the dance chart for weeks. He has two releases on Ed Banger Records, which has shaped modern house music, and was also featured on Nest HQ, an independent label associated with Skrillex.
Houston Press Music Hall of Fame inductee DJ Sun (Soular Productions) has worked as a recording artist and DJ for two decades, winning the Houston Press Best DJ Award on multiple occasions and the Best CD by a Local Musician Award for his album One Hundred.
