"When I'm asked who would I book to dj at any given party, without a hesitation my answer is Rissa Garcia, label boss of NightChild Records. Perhaps it's her mighty NYC legendary influences that we share in common, or her spectrum of range from techno to classics that's executed so divinely. Mostly it's cause she's simply here for the music and the passion shows every time she plays."
