RIETA


Read the RIETA Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


What's up?! My name is Jonathan Rieta and I'm a DJ from San Jose, California.


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


My influences throughout the years have been really all over the place.

Growing up with two older brothers, I would just listen to what they were listening to. During those years, I was listening to a lot of Rap/Hip-Hop and R&B. Groups like A Tribe Called Quest, The Pharcyde, and Bone Thugs n Harmony were some of the heavily played artists.

During high school, I transitioned and became more influenced from the Punk Rock scene. This is where I really developed the love for music and had an interest in creating music. I learned how to play the guitar and ended up joining a couple local bands.

As the years went on, all my influences from Rap/Hip-Hop and Rock gave me an open-mind when it came to music. Now, I really just listen to anything and everything. I've grown and developed a love for Electronic music, but there are way too many sub genres to list on here.


What´s new right now?


I have a new mix that I will be dropping on Valentine's Day called Paper Heart. It's a little different from the other mixes I've created before, but I'm super stoked on the way it turned out. I hope people will dig it.

I'm also planning to get more into music production this year. I have a couple remixes that I'm currently working on that will be dropping soon, and hoping to drop a couple original this year too, so stay tuned!
