DJ Riot is one of Portugal’s most loved and premier DJs. A firm favourite in Lisbon and across the world for his frenetic, high energy and dazzling displays on the decks, the bass loving man is the head of underground label Faster Music, an outlet that helps him to concentrate on his first true musical love – drum and bass.

But – in case you’ve been hiding under a rock - DJ Riot (real name Rui Pitt) is about so much more - he's also the tour DJ and main musical force behind Buraka Som Sistema, the Angolan – Lisboan collective who take the sounds of Kuduro, an Angolan form of synthesised music, and hurtled it into the 21st century, lacing it with punishing raps, earth shattering basslines and urban aesthetics around this makeshift form of tribal dance music.

Riot has been busy since we interviewed him way back in February / March, notably with Buraka gearing up to release ‘Komba’, their second full-length effort before the end of the year.
