Rizla Ops

Rizla Ops is a DJ and producer based in London. Experimenting with club fuelled, off kilter bass music, the emerging artist has releases on Voitax, More Cowbell, Classical Trax, Gimme a Break and Basilica. Pushing for sonic experimentation on the dancefloor, the Rizla Ops sound is always in flux but can be broadly pinned to an emphasis on percussion, groove and texture.

‘I enjoy challenging and subverting people’s conception of genre but in a way that isn’t abrasive and organically leads listeners into new environments of groove, rhythm and emotion. Way too often dance music exists to cater to one specific market. Those kinda monocultures have their place, functioning as a crucial building block of community, but my favourite dancefloors are the ones that create a real sense of risk. For me, the things that push scenes forward are discovery, diversity and experimentation - all things I try to accomplish in my own work.’
