Inroducing: Rival x VAALEA – Intoxicated By Youth


Valentin Rieff, better known as Rival is a 21 year old German producer and musician. He takes melodic trap one step further by finding creative uses for plugins to curate a unique sound and identity/voice as an artist. With the added mastery of jazz chords and a multitude of instruments including piano, drums, and trumpet, Rival is well equipped to create a unique composition with a variety of influences.

Rival has released yesterday in collaboration with singer VAALEA his new single Intoxicated By Youth and it sounds amazing. I really like the powerful melodies. Besides, the vocals are sublime. Furthermore, I am also a big fan of the uplifting chorus!

Speaking about the track, Rival says: ”Intoxicated by Youth delves into the carelessness you can afford when you are young, how you can use it, and abuse it. Society seemingly favours the young, capitalising on the invention and consumption of goods and services that makes us look and feel younger. Regardless of the inevitability of growing older, youthfulness can be an inspired mindset, but instead for many becomes an obsession or unhealthy denial.”

You can say without any doubt that Intoxicated By Youth has all the elements of a hit. Be sure to stream it as soon as possible!
