He hails from Washington, D.C., but Alvin Risk has proven himself to be a worldwide phenomenon in just a few short years. Since exploding onto the music scene in 2010, there has been no looking back for the mastermind electronic music DJ and producer. In addition to a catalog of remixes for the likes of The Prodigy, fun and Matt & Kim, Risk has crafted original compositions that combine dubstep, electronica, house and moombahton with flawless precision. His distinctive appearance – black-framed glasses and a penchant for black and white argyle sweaters – makes him just as unforgettable. Combining raw energy lively synths and addictive basslines, Risk proves his worth as a first-level melody maker on his fifth EP, Venture. The album shows off his vocal and instrumental skills to perfection. Favoring intensity over subtlety, Risk lives up to his name in more ways than one.
