Silent Riot releases, “Burning Down,” a solid, uplifting house tune.
Music genres are always changing within themselves. Rock music today is definitely not the same as it was back in the 80s and 90s, and the same goes for hip hop and even dance music. Dance music that was being produced a few years ago is definitely different from the style that is being produced today. it is somewhat refreshing to actually hear an “older” style come back into our ears, and a prime example of this is Silent Riot‘s new track, “Burning Down.” It’s a house track that takes its influence from the peak popularity of progressive/electro house but infuses it with updated production elements that really make the track pop.
Silent Riot is a San Diego based artist and has done his thing both behind the decks and in the studio for quite a few years. He’s made a name for himself in the local scene by opening for big names such as Dubvision, Riot Ten, and Kennedy Jones. Additionally, his track with Contrvbvnd was supported by the likes of Blasterjaxx and Knife Party. While managing his solo project, Silent Riot is also the co-owner of Recall Records.
The track, “Burning Down” brings together some lush and sultry vocals and combines them with Silent Riot’s progressive/electro house production. While it’s a blast from the past in terms of style, the actual production sounds tremendous, the song is crafted really well and just flows well. This track is pretty impressive and does a great job of sweeping you away in a wave of feel good euphoria from start to finish. Listen to it below, and let us know your thoughts in the comments!

About Silent Riot:
Chris Ertz is not just a music lover, but also someone has found his true calling behind the decks as Silent Riot. This San Diego-based artist is definitely not one to miss, as he has become one of the more revered local acts as of late. Beginning his career back in 2014, Chris found his footing at the now-shuttered venue Somewhere Loud, that made a mark on the scene he in San Diego by hosting a variety of quality acts at their events. Blending a range of subgenres stemming from the bass scene, you can even catch some electro and hip hop incorporated into his sets. His productions are nothing to shy away from either, as they blend electro beats with some bass heaviness that sets him apart from others.
