Riton has teamed up with MNEK and House Gospel Choir for his latest dancefloor anthem, ‘Deeper’ via Ministry of Sound – and you can listen to it now on the Shoot Music – New Releases Playlist.
‘Deeper’ follows the success of Riton’s previous singles ‘Money’ and ‘Rinse & Repeat’. The latter was a UK Top 10 single, the third most played single on BBC Radio 1 in 2016 and was a record breaker on the Radio 1 Dance Chart, spending a massive seven weeks at the top.
Surpassing 50 million streams to date, ‘Rinse & Repeat’ also earned the producer a coveted GRAMMY Award nomination for ‘Best Dance Recording’ at this year’s ceremony. Not stopping there, Riton is also riding high after producing and releasing Kah-Lo’s debut single ‘Fasta’ (currently on the Radio 1 playlist, Annie Mac’s Hottest Record, Clara Amfo’s tune of the week) on his own imprint Ritontime.
Over the course of the summer, Riton played Tomorrowland, V Festival, SW4, Bestival and performed in Ibiza, where he took over the decks at Pacha, Ushuaia and Amnesia. He is also set to play two dates at The Warehouse Project in Manchester alongside two London dates at The Egg (20 October) and Electric Brixton (December 1).
A singer, songwriter and producer in his own right, MNEK is known for fusing pop, R&B and dance music, working with a range of musical talent from the likes of Beyonce, Dua Lipa, Diplo, Rudimental, Jax Jones and Stormzy. In 2015, he became a household name with his multi-platinum selling single ‘Never Forget You’ with Zara Larsson which has had over 550 million streams to date.
Aside from collaborating with some of the biggest artists in the game including Loyle Carner, Gorgon City, JP Cooper and Hurts, House Gospel Choir have built their own fanbase as an artist entity. From touring this Summer with Annie Mac, opening West Holts at Glastonbury and performing with Annie Mac B2B Disclosure at Radio 1’s Ibiza Takeover.
