Riobamba is an Ecuadorian-Lithuanian producer, DJ and cultural activist based in Brooklyn. She’s on the Discwoman roster, and is known for her rowdy and deeply researched live sets, reflecting back nightlife’s power as a site of joy and resistance.

Words from Riobamba herself on the mix:

"It's election week here in the United States, and this recording is an authentic reflection of where I'm at in holding space for both rage and hope. Channelling dreams of the death of the old system, and a rebirth into a foundation that truly serves and uplifts every one of us.”

We created the series to promote and compensate musicians with new weekly mix releases on Soundcloud and Mixcloud - all curated by Benji B.

In an increasingly uncertain business of being a musician DJ or performing artist we wanted to find a way to contribute to supporting the music and nightlife scene.

The effort intends to equip artists to advance their creative and performance opportunities on a global stage, as nightclubs and music venues have largely faced ongoing closures and other restrictions internationally as the COVID-19 pandemic persists.
