Roger Rivas – First Attack

December 11, 2012

Roger Rivas - First AttackRoger Rivas the organist behind two of Los Angeles’s more cherished groups Los Bullets and The Aggrolites comes at us with the first release off his new label Rivas Records. First Attack stays true to the old school roots in every aspect, from its sound to the vinyl 45 format it’s pressed on.

First attack lives up to its billing with raw energy and a emphasis on the heavy key slamming sound roger Rivas is synonymous with. Mixed and engineered beautifully First Attack is what we have come to expect from the mind and fingers of roger Rivas and is a magnificent showcase of what we can look forward to from Rivas records. The B side of First Attack is the wonderful gem Sabor A Mi (My Taste) and it is just that a small taste of what inspires and drives the man to continue pumping out choice tune after choice tune popular the world over, with its steady rockin sound it delivers in every category already being featured in the rotation of most LA dj’s and clubs. With its limited initial release any true fan would be wise not to delay on snagging themselves a copy.

Be sure to stop by to secure your 45 before they’re gone. You can also end the year on a high note by catching The Aggrolites shows on December 28th in Solana Beach at the Belly Up Tavern December 29th at the Viper Room in West Hollywood and a New years Eve bash in Long Beach at Alex’s Bar.
