Stoked to announce my Surface DJ Tour for this spring! The discotheque will be roaming around North America full up with mojitos and sunshine! Find your buds - where are we gonna party? 🌴🍹⛵️🌊🌴🍹⛵️🌊🌴
My new song, Cocaine Girl, came out on Friday. It’s the first piece of music I’ve released since my accident, and to me it sounds like the hazy time I can’t really remember in the weeks after I broke my neck. . During that time I got to some pretty low places and music, as it always does, pulled me up. I hope maybe this can help you too and soundtrack something in your life. An endless night maybe, or even just a moment with your eyes closed and headphones on. This song is about the plunge into the unknown.
Cocaine Girl, our new single, is out today everywhere! . Thank you for being so patient with me while I found myself. Shall we go on a journey together this year? There’s a lot of new music to share...
Cocaine Girl. Our new single - out on Friday.
Vamos Mexico! Bringing the full band to @coronacapitalgdl 💃🏻🌴💃🏻🌴💃🏻🌴💃🏻
High Seas Tour 2018 was the best summer boat tour we’ve ever done. We hit the most cities in our history and played on a crazy variety of boats and locations. We crammed 1200 people onto boats in San Francisco and New York for the biggest boat parties we’ve ever thrown, while also making our debut in Chicago and San Diego. We even partnered with The Yacht Week for two weeks in Montenegro on catamarans. . My favorite part is making so many new friends and seeing old friends show up in new places. There is nothing cooler than getting to spend beautiful afternoons under the sun with people who are going to their third or fifth of these - exploring their way around North America right alongside me. . Thank you to everyone who came out and continues to believe in what we’re building. Soooo, 2019, who’s up to do it all over again? Where should we meet up?!?
I made a best of 2018 playlist on Spotify if you’re interested. It’s full of my favorite music that should’ve gotten way more attention than it did. Link is in my story or on twitter, where I highlighted some of my other favorite things about 2018. I hope you’re all having a really wonderful holiday and looking forward to 2019 as much as I am. Sending lots of love out there to everyone 💛
Happy holidays to everyone dreaming of warmer days. About to go into hibernation until I get to tell you all what’s on the way in 2019 #newmusic #newmixtape #biggerboats #livetours 🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊 . 🤙🏼@jonnyrios
It was raining in LA so I went to Costa Del Sol in the Dominican Republic this weekend to play some tunes on a beach. Thanks @corona 😘
Hard to believe this remix turns 7 this week. So many memories are tied up with this song, from all over the world and across years of space and time and people. I remember playing at Armando Records in Bogota in 2013 with the band and just being blown away by the crowd singing louder than we could play. The thrill of @themagicianclub including it in one of his early Magic Tapes. Countless singalongs in Mexico City, especially at Corona Capital in 2016. . If you’ve been riding with me since this one, thank you! It’s rare to take a musical journey with people for this many years and I feel really blessed to get to have this back and forth with you at all. Or maybe you’re hearing it for the first time today? My story has a link to listen if you wanna give it a spin 💛. . I think remixes still matter, and it’s a real shame this song isn’t available anywhere other than on SoundCloud and YouTube. I’d love to see @nikiandthedove’s label release this one on Apple and Spotify - or at least let me! Comment and tag @nikiandthedove if you think so too!
Guess who’s finishing up new music? 2019 fixing to be a good year 🍾
There’s no place I’d rather close out my High Seas tour for 2018 than Los Angeles. We sold out the entire tour yet again, and I’m so thankful that I get to bring my two passions together in one place. Thank you to every single person who came this year. Now... what can we do next year to go even bigger? . 📷: @macmotions
Last High Seas boat party of 2018 is Saturday in Long Beach CA. Bringing it all home to close it out 😭 . 📷: @jonny.rios
This July I continued my partnership with @theyachtweek in the beautiful country of Montenegro. I lived on a catamaran for 3 weeks, sailed from harbor to harbor playing that liquid disco and exploring one of the hidden gems of the Adriatic. For a sailor who loves to DJ a day party, this is basically a dream come true. . They’ve really done an incredible job curating a truly holistic experience and I have to say this was a trip of a lifetime. From early morning boatside yoga, to wild circle raft parties, running through rosé fueled beachside discos. Of course for me the best part is just living on a boat, throwing the sails up, and exploring a new place, especially one as breathtaking as Montenegro. . Building such a good relationship with @theyachtweek has been one of the more fulfilling pleasures of my entire career and I’m looking forward to seeing what comes next! Next year I really hope to announce even earlier and maybe do a Goldroom fan only presale so you guys can get in on the action before anyone else. Sound good? Let me know if you’d be down to come in 2019! . Finally a huge thanks to @paulyloz, @henriquedagostini, @wil_curtis, and the rest of the Yacht Week staff for making me feel like a part of the family. Lastly thanks to @catkoppel for shooting and editing this beautiful recap!
