Posted by on November 14, 2023

Released via REALM Records, Gorgon City’s label, the fasting-rising talent Riordan has revealed “Needle On The Records,” after teasing it at several festivals in 2023. Influenced by genres like house and UKG, this single builds in cultural cues that will catch the attention of the listeners while grooving to the infectious beat paired with it. Using samples from the original 80’s release, this single is a multi-faceted fascination easy to return to again and again.

The song is one of his most successful to date and gained the nod of approval from names like, Mau P, Gorgon City, Seb Zito, Joshwa, Kyle Watson, and many others.

Riordan shares more about the release:

“This song idea actually started when my Dad sent me the original Needle On The Record track from the 80s, suggesting that the vocal had potential to be made into something new. I had just come back from my first Miami Music Week and was full of inspiration so the ideas started flowing immediately. But this song taught me that good things come to those who wait. It was six months and seven versions of the song later when I finally felt like I had nailed it. That’s the longest it has ever taken me to finish a track, but it was worth it. I sent it to Realm immediately knowing that it was the perfect home for it, and everything seemed to fall into place. “

From headlining Night Tales in London to teeing up for an epic 2024, so much is going right for this artist, and then some. Only 21 years old and a looking at a huge, bountiful future in front of him, Riordan is easily described as one to watch out for.
