  • Dancing for Money is a london-based party focused on a cultural exchange between Ireland and the UK, aiming to promote underrated artists from both places. DFM aims to celebrate more of what we have in common, alongside the Irish and South Asian heritage of its founders. This is reflected in the line up for our first party, with Cáit and Riva. Cáit Before the beloved Dublin DIY venue Jigsaw’s untimely closure, Cáit’s all night sets at DIP were things of legend. Her selection and technical prowess always bringing an explicably energy to the dancefloor that left the crowd feeling that they had been a part of something truly special. With a hard to pin down style, Cáit’s selection is best described as sentimental and forward thinking; blurring the lines between past and present in compelling ways. Her recent performances at London’s Adonis, Radiant Love (of which she is a resident) in Berlin and an all night long set at Dublin’s beloved Yamamori Tengu solidify her status as both a proponent of dance music’s inclusive and underground lineage and one of Ireland’s most exciting and best DJs.

From there, her taste and appreciation for music became borderless and eclectic, drawing inspiration from her British-Indian background and experiences of living in Hong Kong and South Africa. Her music does not hinge on one genre as Riva sees music as a form of storytelling, protest and is always on the hunt for rhythms that can spread a message, unify and emancipate the listener on the dancefloor. An internal member of Daytimers, a collective that champions South Asian artistry, Riva most recently released her debut track on "For the Community, by the Community" a compilation put together by Daytimers and Big Dyke Energy. Following her HOR debut in Berlin, many exciting projects lie on the horizon where Riva will combine her love for music and socio-political work.
