Riico is a DJ/Producer based in Montreal, Canada. Having been trained as a classical musician from a young age, Riico developed a love and appreciation for all things music very early on. As a child, his mind was open to all styles of music, ranging from R&B and hip-hop to rock and jazz. His world, however, took a drastic turn when he was introduced to electronic music as a young teenager, and he has not looked back since.
Drawing heavily from likes of Hernan Cattaneo and John Digweed, Riico’s style is an intricate blend between deeper shades of progressive house and techno, always seeking that perfect balance between groove, harmonics and rhythm. He constantly thrives to push the boundaries of conventional DJing, and aims to take crowds on a journey through space and sound.
Since 2013, Riico has played at several of Montreal’s hottest venues, and for the past year he has held down a residency at Newspeak in collaboration with electronic music collective FrontRite, where he has opened for international DJs such as Finnebassen and Cid Inc, as well as hosting a monthly locals-only night, where he offers a platform to his favourite Montreal-based DJs to showcase their unique sounds. Catch him at Newspeak on November 5th opening for Eekkoo & Jeremy Olander.
