Canvas continues its weekly House and Techno flagship night with special guest Sandy Rivera together with resident Tony Tay. Expect a dance floor focused blend of four to the floor beats, exploring the sonic boundaries between Detroit, Chicago, Berlin, NYC and London.
Legend. Sandy Rivera’s place in house music history has been assured. Recording under both his own name and his legendary Kings of Tomorrow moniker, Rivera’s unparalleled creativity and gift for forging timeless house records have placed him in a league of his own, and without him the house landscape would boast a far less richly coloured vista.
For many, Rivera will be best known for the seminal ‘Finally’, Kings of Tomorrow’s magnum opus and a record that stands as one of the finest vocal house record ever made. Released on Defected Records – a label with which Rivera has enjoyed a staggeringly fruitful relationship over the years.
In years to come, Sandy Rivera will be looked back on as one of the true greats to the scene; a pioneering artist whose passion for house music is continually realised in the music he creates. For now though, with the 20th anniversary re-brand of Blackwiz just around the corner and the re-launch of his seminal label Deep Vision, he’s still busy creating his legacy: long may he continue.
