Released on fellow DJ Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak label, the album is home to ten tracks, including the dubstep-fused lead single “Glocks”.

Musically, the album is a combination of both the DJ’s signature electro house and dubstep styles, alongside some more hip hop-sounding tracks.

Riot Ten has revealed that it is a “defining moment” to finally release an album, after spending the past few years dropping EPs and standalone singles.

“This album is literally who I am as a musician. It means everything to me,” he said.

“I’ve put out countless EP’s over the last 3 years, way too many singles to even count, so to finally deliver a full length album is a defining moment for my career and growth as an artist.

“This album will showcase my roots, as well as my energy, and I can’t wait to share it with the world.”

Riot Ten got his big break after releasing his debut EP, “Hype Or Die: Headbangerz” in 2016, which included the single “Like Kanye”, featuring vocals from dancehall artist Bunji Garlin.

His follow up EP, “Hype Or Die: The Dead” was released in 2018, reaching the top ten on the US iTunes Dance Chart.

He quickly followed this up with yet another EP the same year, titled “Hype Or Die: Genesis”, which coincided with his sell-out Hype Or Die US tour.

The DJ has also performed at renowned festivals such as Coachella, Electric Zoo and Sunset, so it’s fair to say his career has got off to a pretty good start.

Riot Ten will also be touring across the US in support of this new album. To find out more about the tour and to purchase tickets, click here.
