For those of you who missed it, and those who just want to relive those magic moments over and over, Riobamba’s Pirate Radio Live set is now available for your listening pleasure.
Based in Brooklyn, Riobamba is an Ecuadorian-Lithuanian producer, DJ, cultural activist and star of Bodega’s first-ever Pirate Radio Mix. As the former Music Editor at Remezcla and Fulbright researcher studying digital production as a “subversive tool for healing the legacy of civil conflict and displacement,” her resume reads like a highlight reel of proactive, humanistic quests for justice and equality through music. Today, she runs APOCALIPSIS, the forward-thinking, NYC-based record label/creative agency, and is a proud member of the techno-feminist booking agency, Discwoman. Her long-running Boston-based, global bass night “Pico Picante” is going on its 10 year (pandemic pending), while her recent European tour was sadly cut short for the same reason. She’s shared stages with visionaries as disparate as Toro y Moi, Swizz Beatz and The Knife, and now you can hear her most recent self-isolation set here below.
