Ricoshëi’s debut hit single “Perfect Like You” was released in 2014 on DJ Koze’s highly-acclaimed imprint, Pampa Records reaching #5 on the industry-leading, Hypem.comoverall chart the following week. It consequently went on to hold chart positions on Beatport, Decks.de andJuno.co.uk’s top charts for several months and has accumulated well over 1M plays. Their most recently released EP, “Ghosts” garnered much attention and support from top-leading club djs such as Groove Armada’s Tom Findlay, Route 94, Nick Warren, Kiki and Joris Voorn to name a very select few as well as positive press reviews and a staggering rating of 9/10 on Ibiza-Voice. Their music has continually been featured on the regular programming of globally recognized radio networks such as iHeartRadio’s “The IndependentFM”, Los Angeles-based “KCRW”, Sirius Radio’s “XMU” Channel 35, Toronto’s “CHRY 105.5FM” , Italy’s “RAI Radio2”, Ibiza-Sonica, Lebanon’s NRJ 99.1 FM, Germany’s Fritz Radio FM, Vienna’s FM4 and in the UK on BBC Radio6. Most recently, German music website, Trndmusik.de named “Perfect Like You” their #1 song of 2014.
With 2015 well underway, the duo comprised of Nikko Gibler and Jake Patrick have launched their new label, “What’s That?” through which they will be releasing “original music that showcases all-shades of electronica and other greatly unexpected genres. We [RICOSHËI] won’t limit the label to any one particular sound.”
Throughout February and March 2015, Ricoshëi performed 16 sold-out shows across America during which they supported Eric Prydz' "Pryda Generate Tour". The tour visited major cities across 9 US states as well as Toronto & Montreal in Canada. “Exchange” in Los Angeles, "New City Gas" in Montreal, Denver’s “Beta”, “Verboten” in Brooklyn, NY, "The Mid" in Chicago and “Coda” in Toronto were only
some of the venues that hosted the tour during those 30 days. The one-month tour came to an end with an epic closing party at San Francisco’s “Mezzanine” on March 14th 2015.
Within weeks of Pryda’s “Generate Tour”, Ricoshëi headed out to Miami Beach where they performed at Pete Tong’s infamous “All Gone Pete Tong” pool party during MMW2015. Around that same time they would perform at “Luciano & Friends” – an all-day party at the now, world-renowned Hyde Beach located inside the SLS Hotel.
In the last 18 months their success has earned them slots at some of the biggest festivals around; including Coachella, Lollapalooza, The BPM Festival, SXSW and Mexico City’s massive Corona Capital. On May 23rd 2015, Ricoshëi will perform on the main stage at Mysteryland USA in Bethel, New York. This will take place exactly where Woodstock ’69 took place and with artists such as Ritchie Hawtin, Diplo, Empire of The Sun, Kygo, Matthew Dear, Nicole Moudaber, Robin Schulz & more...
Whether its a dj set or a live performance, their shows perfectly reflect their passion for music as they usually perform on stage with guitars, keyboards, drum-machines, controllers and their already unmistakeable vocals.
