Fast rising producers Brooks and Jonas Aden have joined forces for a brand new mainstage banger, “Riot,” a song that is certainly designed to incite raucous behavior out on the dancefloor. The accompanying music video is also hilariously tongue-in-cheek as it pokes fun at those planning on storming Area 51. None other than Martin Garrix premiered “Riot” during his Ultra Miami set earlier this year. If that’s not a seal of approval, I don’t know what is.
The track opens with some light synth keys creating a tension that only gets tighter when the rock inspired vocal track comes on. After the verse, the production goes up a notch as we get the synth notes that will become the drop fading in and out. The synth notes bounce up and down during the drop along with a fuzzy bassline, and the vocal refrain, “Together, we can start a riot!” The groove and energy of the drop is carried over to the second verse before we get a sort of bridge, the “put your hands up and clap” part of the track as I like to call it. After that it’s another drop and the groove keeps on going.
