Cold Sweat 07:52
Fluid Being 06:22


Shapeshifting between minimal and maximal forms, tension and release, "Cold Sweat" & "Fluid Being” transpose techno logic to classical instrumentation and disembodied vocals. Through the friction of myriad contrasting movements within each piece, Rioux explores the binaries of his own masculinity and femininity.

"I believe all human beings are comprised of masculine and feminine tendencies. I enjoy the push and the pull of each. I perceive music, just like I perceive life, in these terms."

Echoes of Arthur Russell’s Dinosaur L and Detroit House can be traced in the mesh of musical trapdoors. Swerving around convention and towards the unexpected, Rioux thoughtfully orchestrates a dancefloor experience that keeps its audience on the tips of its toes. Not a second is left wanting color or detail.

A Detroit-area native, Rioux is set to release his debut solo LP this Fall via his label and New York event series, Human Pitch.
