Puerto Rican New Yorker Sandy Rivera arrives at Edinburgh superclub Progression on April 22. Hailed by clubbers for his many fine cuts and dance floor destroyers, this house music mastermind will be well received in the capital. In the year 2002, the well deserved success of Finally (Defected), produced under his Kings of Tomorrow guise finally saw the success it deserved, making Rivera one of the hottest DJ/Producers and an overnight success. The triumphs did not stop there, with a gold-plated house music anthem picking up a clutch of gongs, including a Pacha Award for Best Ibiza Tune and a Muzik magazine award for Tune of the Year. After a string of equally successful tracks including the instantly addictive I Can't Stop supported by the likes of Tim Deluxe and Mutiny, Rivera is riding high. Rivera puts his success down to the fact that: "It's all about the knowing what's good and what's not. I can't guarantee all my records will be big hits, but I can always guarantee they will be quality music," an ethos which is endorsed by Progression's au fait clubbers and will certainly exemplify why Progression was nominated as Best Scottish Club 2005 by MixMag Music Awards. Progression regulars and house music fans alike will be thrilled that this dance music Svengali has arrive in town, so get your tickets now before they sell out.
