Riordan Releases Latin and Techno-Fusion
Up-and-coming techno producer Riordan makes his debut on Insomniac’s IN/ROTATION label with the release of his Latin-influenced track “Paco.” Coincidentally, it was released on May 5, also known as the Mexican holiday Cinco de Mayo.
We are taken back to the days of the 2000s nightclub scenes when European dance music was coming into fashion but with a modern twist. The fiery single is seasoned with romantic flamingo-styled Spanish guitars, thumping drums, a swinging percussion section, and a smooth vocal hook. With all these recipes mixed, we are introduced to Riordan’s flavorful production that leaves us begging for more.
Luckily, Riordan is no stranger to Latin-influenced beats. As he was making a name for himself during the pandemic, the producer rose to prominence with his unique mashups and remixes of Latin music on his social media. As a result, he earned approximately more than 149K followers and three million views across all his videos on TikTok. His previous singles “No Hablo Español” and “Reflection” have both reached over a million streams. “Paco” is his first release under a label and he has spoken about breaking out of his comfort zone during the creation of the track:
“As my discography shows, I have an affinity for Latin samples, but rarely use guitar as the focal point of a track, so it was very fun to make. I tried to be original and experiment with looping, and the way the guitar riff flows into the drop. It took a while after that to perfect it, but it’s been ripping up my sets ever since!”
Under the new label, Riordan is set to reach as many music aficionados and even make it on dance playlists in the foreseeable future, and we are here for it!!!
