Lauren Ritter - Rift Vision 002 The Remixes
Lauren Ritter, Octo Octa, Jenifa Mayanja, Lawrence, Rrao, Tenesha The Wordsmith Birthed in Brooklyn from her home studio during lockdown, producer and stay-at-home DJ Lauren Ritter unveiled her own, newly-minted label Rift Vision last winter with four deep, glittering, dream-like compositions. As the world begins to re-open, Rift Vision returns with a stellar cast of guest artists to provide their own take on her four originals. The inimitable Octo Octa kick-starts the project, giving “Vespers” an injection of energy with groovy, bouncy percussion that underpins the track’s warm and buoyant pads. Bumako visionary Jenifa Mayanja gracefully pairs vocals and rhymes from Tenesha The Wordsmith and JB!! AKA Dirty Moses with warm, floating, and glistening melodies that refresh “Thirst Trap” for the summertime. On the B side, Dial founder Lawrence brings his signature subliminal and smokey sound to club-focused “Quartz,” making a perfect cut for early-morning dance floors in Berlin, Brooklyn, and beyond. Slink NYC’s co-founder Rrao closes out the journey with a vibrant and bubbly spin on “Value of a Piece Taken.
