East Coast superstars Anthony Riggi and James Piros, AKA Riggi & Piros, have been making New Jersey proud while simultaneously taking the EDM scene by storm with their larger than life sounds and massive remixes. Not wasting any time getting their careers started, the duo started DJing at just 16, and got into production at 17. After only a year production they had their first Beatport/iTunes release with Clockwork’s “Surge” (Riggi & Piros remix) that charted in the Beatport Top 20, an accomplishment that takes others years to achieve.
Coming in hot their fire track with Borgeous “Feel So Good” Riggi & Piros are ready to take over the scene this summer with tons fresh new music.
Check out their half-hour guest mix they shared with us that has a bunch new ID’s in there including their track with UNKWN which will be out next week. Also check out our interview with the duo and see what the summer has in store for the guys!
How did you guys meet?
We met in kindergarten on the playground, been buddies ever since!
Who are some your musical inspirations behind your music?
The Chainsmokers because they’ve taken dance music to a whole other level.
What song/genre/moment got you guys into EDM music?
We have been listening to techno and dance music since elementary school! But if I had to tell you one our favorite club classics it would definitely be Show Me Love by back in 09!
Thanks for the mix. What goes into making a mix like this and what are a few songs in the mix you think makes it stand out?
Song selection is key, we usually use a program called Mixed In Key which tells you the keys each song. Making your transitions sound much better than usual, highly recommend it!
We have a few unreleased songs in here so we think those will definitely stand out ?
If you guys could play any venue B2B with any artist, who are where are you choosing?
That’s definitely a hard question for us because there’s sooo many dope artists out there. But would have to pick b2b with our main dudes The Chainsmokers @ Ultra Main Stage because they’re the homies & they always turn up
What does the summer/future have in store for you guys?
After getting f the 2 month Bus Tour we decided to Tour less for the next couple months so we can work in the studio all day, everyday.
So this Summer will be strictly releasing music only. Probably going to be releasing more music this Summer than we did all year!! We have so much unreleased music & it’s finally time to unleash it all…
But after all the music comes out, we’ll be for sure playing ALOT shows/tours. A lot surprises for the future. We can’t wait.
What kind stuff do you guys like to do besides make music?
Photography, hiking, working out, cooking & when we’re in our hometown we love going to local bars with our homies!
What is your favorite home cooked meal? Favorite Junk Food?
Coming from a super Italian family, pasta Sundays are the best haha but would definitely have to be our parents Penne Vodka!!
Favorite junk food is In n Out hands down. The fact there’s no In n Out in NJ is such a tease!
