In today's LA Weekly online I do a Q&A with Miami house/trance/tribal artist Robbie Rivera, whose new album, Closer to the Sun, is out this week on Ultra Records. He'll be at Giant at Vanguard Saturday. I asked him how he likes his warm-up DJs to play when he spins. Here's what he says:
"Opening DJs sometimes go crazy, playing hard, peak-time stuff -- and I hate that. If you're going to warm up for a DJ, you should play warm-up music that's appropriate to the setting and set time. I prefer 126 beats per minute -- nothing too hard, no big breakdowns. Warm-up music, that's what I like."
