Part 2 of the RizLab project sees RizLab team up with Friendly Fires. To kick things off, Friendly Fires have made an exclusive mix which, as they explain in the accompanying short film, features just some of the artists and styles that represent the past, present and future of dance music. Referencing artists such as LFO, Green Velvet and Blawan; they really do demonstrate their passion and love for innovative dance music.
The culmination of this project between Friendly Fires and RizLab will come at this year’s Bestival where they shall be curating a Friday night line-up with the best that dance music has to offer, with DJ sets and live collaborations from SBTRKT, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, LONE, Frankie Knuckles and A Guy Called Gerald.
