Interview: Elio Riso, from Argentina to Space Ibiza

Mon 02.11.2009

A longtime DJ and much-respected Space Ibiza resident Elio Riso chats to DJsounds’ DJ Daisy Heartbreaker from his studio in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Subjects on the radar include his rise to prominence, catching the ear of BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong, working with Carl Cox, and the progression of his productions and remixes.

As a DJ, Elio performs around the world, from Miami to Ibiza, and in 2009 was a regular spinner at Be @ Space, We Love… and Carl Cox’s Join Our Revolution parties.

As a producer, he has released tracks on such labels as Low Pressings, Stealth and Cr2 Records, and he’s remixed for such artists as Roger Sanchez, Sonique, Tom Novy and Axwell & Bob Sinclar feat. Ron Carroll.

Elio’s recent production ‘Space Pianist’ has already appeared on Cr2’s Live & Direct Miami 2009, as well as on Carl Cox’s mix compilation: Carl Cox and Friends at Space Ibiza.

And during November/December you can catch him playing at various venues across Latin America. Words: LRC
