Having recently done a mix for Ninja Tunes Solid Steel Radio Show while having also been premiered on both Boiler Room and FACT, the Detroit-native Rioux has recently announced the release of a dance oriented two-tracker on his Human Pitch imprint titled "Cold Sweat/Fluid Being." The 12" marks Rioux's last dance singles release of the year before the artist embarks on his debut LP which will be release in the fall of 2016.
Fluctuating between rasping techno sounds and disarming instrumentation, these "contrasting movements" are meant to represent the "binaries of his own masculinity and femininity." Rioux explains further by saying:
"I believe all human beings are comprised of masculine and feminine tendencies. I enjoy the push and the pull of each. I perceive music, just like I perceive life, in these terms."
You can stream the single "Cold Sweat" in the player below and be sure to check out more from Rioux by visiting his SoundCloud page here.
