Puerto Rican-born Miami resident Robbie Rivera is set to release his new artist album Closer To The Sun, after another action-packed summer of his weekly Juicy parties at Privilege in Ibiza, and a hectic global tour schedule. Featuring collaborations with the likes of Fast Eddie, Laura Vane, Moony (DB Boulevard), it’s progressive house music with a twisted, fucked-up attitude – the Juicy style.

With everyone from Paul Oakenfold to David Guetta clamouring after his roof-raising productions, Robbie has never been more in demand. With another huge Ibiza season under his belt, remix requests flooding in left, right and centre, another hugely successful Juicy compilation and slew of Juicy releases, and gigs at some of the world’s biggest events, 2009 has been one of his biggest years so far – and this hot new album is set to be the icing on the cake.

From the Killers-style uplifting synths of the title track to the cool hip-house vibes of Let Me Sip My Drink and Keep It Going, the big vocal hooks of tracks like The Rain to the instrumental beauty of Departures and the huge riffs of dancefloor killers like 6AM and the hard-hitting I Am A Badass, this album is a non-stop, high-octane journey through Robbie’s eclectic sound – fusing trance with house rhythms, electro synths, progressive melodies and proper songwriting. As is usual with his productions, the album has found support from a huge cross-section of DJs from across the genres – and deservedly so. It’s the sound of one open-minded DJ/producer’s globe-trotting life distilled into 12 tracks of cutting-edge electronic eclecticism.

A world tour to support Robbie’s new album begins in North America Oct 31 in his home town of San Juan, Puerto Rico – where he headlines the Coliseum’s 10,000-capacity Halloween event. Thereafter he travels to all major US and Canadian cities, before moving into South America and more in 2010.
