Midnight Ritual celebrates its second anniversary with visit by Riobamba from NYC

The critically acclaimed artist, cultural activist and DJ Riobamba will be visiting Bristol at the end of January as part of her 2019 European tour. She will be heating up the celebrations for Midnight Ritual’s second anniversary at the Old Market Assembly on January 26th with a hard-hitting set of ground-braking reggaeton and bass-heavy tropical electronica. Lauded by renowned blogs and magazines like Resident Advisor, Vice, FACT, The Fader and heavyweight institutions Boiler Room and Red Bull Academy, as one of the main artists to follow in 2019, the Ecuatorian-Lithuanian DJ/Producer will be sharing her vast musical knowledge with the lucky Bristolians that make it into this intimate gig. Known for her activist work in improving Latinx cultural representation in the US through her many Brooklyn-based projects and new label Apocalypsis, there couldn’t be a better place to host Riobamba than at Midnight Ritual, a locally-grown project that from the very beginning has sought to bring to the city the best of Latin Tropical and Global Bass underground acts as a way of celebrating immigrants and their contributions to culture and nightlife in Bristol.

Pablo Villierezz, AV artist under the monocle “Panther Panther!” and founder of Midnight Ritual states that the night “is a safe space for all those in-betweeners, all of those people who have found love, life and work elsewhere and are now straddling two or more places they call home. It is also a bridge, for those who are navigating the whole us-them paradigm and just need a little help crossing over to the other side. Its music for and by immigrants as well as all other people who identify with its hybrid flavour; it is also music that explores what it means to be human in the 21st century, where traditional and digital cultures meet, where global and local interact, young and new, familiar and unknown: a leveller where we all get to meet and dance”.

Midnight Ritual was modelled after the original cumbia parties that took place in Buenos Aires and Lima before 2010: multi-sensory experiences where futuristic visuals and projection mapping joined to create amazing experiences of deep communion with leftfield music and local communities. For the past two years, every other month the Old Market Assembly has been transformed as a site for tropical wonderment within space age atmospheres where ritualistic dances are carried out in jest over bass-heavy frequencies with very Latin flavours. Some of the best DJs and producers in the scene such as Rafael Aragon, Sidirum, Guacamayo DJs and Yeahman have played at Midnight Ritual, making Bristol one of the must-go cities in the international Tropical Bass touring circuit.

Experience a truly unique night with Riobamba at Midnight Ritual: in-house band Xaman X will provide the warm-up hype with their use of traditional Colombian marimbas and gaitas and hardware electronica, whilst London based DJ Mango Park will be providing support on the decks for Riobamba. There will also be playful ritualistic nonsense by local performing artists Simon Panrucker and Katie Storer and beautifully mapped visuals on our constantly changing screen by the Hot Cheeks team. Don’t miss it for the world!
