Episode 96 of the Gangstercast series is brought to us by London based producer Riki Inocente. Riki is a pure self-taught producer, re mixer and DJ, his music has been moving dance floors all over the world for the last decade. He is forever experimenting new ideas drawing on the wealth of knowledge he has and life experience within the house movement, his releases include re mixes from DJ Sneak, underground label boss Hector Moralez and Grammy nominee, and house legend DJ Todd Terry.
Soon after Riki was introduced to DJ Sneak, ‘We Iz Underground’ was released on Sneak’s flagship label Magnetic with remixes from Hector Moralez and from the label boss himself. The record was produced by Riki Inocente and Darren Roach under the alias of ‘Bluntz & Roachez’. Later that year they were asked to do a remix of one of Sneak’s original cuts ‘Bodytalkin’, a project he released on DJ Sneak Classic’s label. In 2013, Riki dropped his first Gangstercast and now he’s back to deliver another.

When we sat down with Riki, we asked how the mix represents him as an artist, he replied with “Tough, dark and twisted, like me. I didn’t really choose the tracks, I just had a mix I know that all the tracks I have are bullets so I knew it was gonna turn out fresh.”
He went on to explain, what the House Gangster movement means to him “the House Gangster movement represents freedom of creativity, being able to be myself and be part of a family. That to me is what it’s all about, the bigger picture. It is about being loyal to yourself, your supporters, and importantly, the music and its culture.”
