Riders of the Night
Chris Lake & Nightriders - NYC (Original Mix) [Rising]
FireFlowerz - Over (Nightriders Remix) [OMG!]

Chris Lake has done a fantastic job of pushing his label, Rising Music, with its artists picking up some nice steam in the EDM world. We’ve covered Marco Lys, Nelski, and others, but today it’s time to shine some light on Boston-based duo Nightriders. Hey was their last musical entry on LessThan3, but that was just a warmup for the bangers we’re posting today!

Matt Johnson and Joe Faria’s new collaboration with Chris Lake is just flat-out fun. Titled NYC, this track is sure to be a crowd pleaser in the Big Apple and beyond. The drop phrase feels something like Barbra Streisand, but the drop itself is totally disco. Brace yourself for the buildups in this one–they are absolutely massive. Turning our attention to the Nightriders remix of Over by FireFlowerz, released back in March, you’ll find that it’s got that same groovy disco touch to it. Their tracks always seem to be bangin’ at just the right intensity–you could party to them all night long without even noticing the time pass. Excellent use of vocal splicing and sampling and a massive mid-tune buildup and drop are sure to please time and time again. Show these guys some love!
