2 Man Riot is an electronic music group that was founded in the summer of 2021 by Alex Span and Rutger Steenbergen. The group quickly made a name for themselves with the release of their debut track "Iridescense" on Elpida Music, an imprint of Black Hole Recordings. The track received global support from well-known DJs such as Daniel Wanrooy, Artento Divini, H.X.E., and Suzanne Chesterton, and helped establish 2 Man Riot as a rising force in the electronic music scene.

In 2022, Rutger decided to focus on his solo projects, De Facto and Bombario, but continues to play a role behind the scenes in 2 Man Riot. Despite this change, 2 Man Riot has continued to produce top quality music that has been highly regarded in the industry. Their remixes of tracks by H.X.E. and By Xavier have received rave reviews from the original artists, further cementing their reputation as talented producers.

2 Man Riot's music is known for its unique blend of melodic and energetic elements, featuring driving beats, soaring synths and emotive vocals. Their live shows are also known to be high energy and engaging, with the duo skillfully mixing and blending their tracks to create an immersive experience for their audience.

2 Man Riot's music is a must-listen for fans of electronic music and for those who are looking for something fresh and exciting. With a growing fanbase and a steady stream of new music, 2 Man Riot is a group to watch in the coming years.
