House playlist takeover | Riva Starr for Defected weekend

We hand control of the aux lead to the Snatch! Records boss.

Few people know Ibiza better than those behind market leading Defected. While the all-encompassing label, party series and media outlet calls Eden home, it has set out ambitious plans for summer.

Not only will Defected begin its 2022 campaign with a three-day, five-venue weekender, but becomes the first label given full access to programme and promote Dalt Vila - Ibiza's Old Town.

Ahead of the huge Defected weekend, we handed control of our aux lead to Riva Starr. The Defected regular plays the opening party at Eden on Friday 29 April, as well as six more times.

Selecting some of his favourite tracks, the DJ takes over our House music playlist.


Riva Starr House playlist takeover

Riva Starr | Love Divine | Defected Records

"My most recent original release on Defected. This is a track that keeps on giving. They tell me that it keeps on being played in the clubs around the world and I couldn't be happier."

Santos | Hold Home | Moon Harbour

"This is one of my favourite songs from Santos. The track was released and kept bubbling in the underground for almost two years before the big break (it got big plays at Circoloco and the like). Eventually it rose to classic status. Love it."

Star B | Fire | Snatch! Records

"Star B is my collaborative project with the legend Mark Broom. Sometimes tracks take a different path from what you plan it to be. We were meant to release this in April 2020. Then the lockdown hit and plans were paused."

"We resumed this year at the end of lockdown. We really wanted to put it out when the clubs were open and, oh man, that was a wise choice. Still rockin'!"

Dukwa | My Journey Into Eternity (Deetron Remix) | Undisputed Music

"Man like D never fails. This is a superb take on Dukwa's original. Once you are locked in the groove/melody, it will never let you go."

Catz N Dogz | Toma (Riva Starr Back To Basics Remix) | Pets Recordings

"When I got asked by the guys to do this remix, I really wanted to come out of my comfort zone and deliver a more minimal and bass driven remix. I had so much fun playing with it, as the original really reminded me of my early Dirtybird days."

DJ Duke | Electric Disco | Superbad Music

"Through the years, DJ Duke's gotta be one of my favourite producers. This track is no exception - a triumph of percussions, dark Disco vocals and funky synth to get you locked on the dancefloor."

Looking ahead to the opening party and the rest of the season, Riva Starr had this to say:

"Defected at Eden is hands down one of the best parties on the island. The sound system is spot on, the crowd is well up for it and it's always open for a curveball or two (hey, it's me!) The overall vibe is outstanding, so I look forward to bringing my sound this summer."

Aside from the Defected opening party, you can catch Riva Starr at Eden on 13 May, 17 and 24 June, 15 July, 26 August and 23 September.

Tickets for all seven of those dates and the remainder of the season are on sale and available below.
