I've took some time away from four on the floor to experiment with some other styles, namely Drum & Bass and Drumstep. It's been an interesting journey trying to pick up how differently things are done but I'm thoroughly enjoying the ride so far. Iv'e just completed my first track 'Zone' with another 'Like A Bosscilator' well under way.
Introduced at an early age by his brother Steve Helstrip aka The Thrillseekers, Richard was signed to the label ATCR at the age of 13 with the tracks Unity Theme and Surreal under his Guise Free Radical. With a helping hand on the remix side of things from brother Steve the tracks went on to appear on compilations such as the huge Gatecrasher: Disco Tech and DJ Tiesto's Magik 6.
A few remix requests were to follow including the massive anthem 'The Eternal'. A new found passion for tougher, harder music was soon to become a strong influence in current productions and here resulting in a yearning to explore different paths. Since then he has been developing his style experimenting many different areas, genre's and directions now trying to fuse different elements from different origins. This side is Freek Animal. Off the back of this new era Richard also worked along side Toolbox Record's wizard, Wil H to create a pounding Hard NRG stomper under the Alias Audiophilez for Definition Recordings.
After a long hiatus, the original Free Radical has returned signing 2 new beauties which will be debuting on Red Force Recordings on Tuesday 21st June. With lots more to come, watch this space.
