About

Richard West aka Mr.C was born in London in the late 60's. He started MCing in London clubs aged only 16 & soon earned a reputation as a fast talking vivacious rapper working with LWR radio's Ron Tom & the LWR Soul Syndicate, Jasper the Vinyl Junkie & Jazzy M. Mr.C then hooked up with Colin Faver & Evil Eddie Richards to became resident rapper at the legendary Camden Palace in 1986, going on to MC for Colin Faver on the then illegal pirate radio station Kiss FM. Mr.C went into the studio to record his 1st house track with Eddie Richards as Myster-E which was released in August 1987. This inspired Mr.C to become a DJ to learn more about his beloved House & Techno music, so in late '87 Richard took to the decks. Mr.C has since organised, promoted & been resident DJ at: Fantasy ('88), Base (Dungeons '89), Release (91), Harmony (92), Drop (93), Cyclone (94), Vapourspace (94 & 95), Flavour (The End 95 & 96), Subterrain (The End 95- 2002), Superfreq (Worldwide 2002 - Present) & Super Disco Freq (LA 2010 - present).

In December 1995 Mr.C opened the legendary night club The End in London with partner Layo Paskin & then AKA bar 3 years later, which celebrated its 13th anniversary in December 2008. Sadly The End & AKA closed its doors for good on January 24th 2009. 1 Chapter closes & another begins.

Mr.C is founder & owner of Plink Plonk records, cofounder of End Recordings & cofounder & owner of the Superfreq label. Mr.C has recorded under the names, Myster-E, Unity 2, Nu Jacks, Bass Bureau, The Shamen, Mantrac, Somnambulist, Animus Amour, Killer Loop, Mr.C & Tom Parris, Mr.C & 16B, Sycophant Slags & Indigo Kidz. Mr.C is best known as front man of the pop group The Shamen with whom he notched up a string of top 10 hits including Move Any Mountain & the UK number 1 smash hit Ebeneezer Goode. With Colin Angus as The Shamen, Mr.C also won a highly coveted Ivor Novelo for Songwriters of the year UK in 1992. Richard's currently recording solo as Mr.C & is also doing collaborations as the Indigo Kidz with Affie Yusuf, with [a]pendics.shuffle & with Omid 16b & has recent releases on Poker Flat, Wagon Repair Records, Get Physical Records & Adjunct Audio as well as his own Superfreq imprint. Mr.C has just started another new production project with Noel Jackson under the name East LA Tek, the first EP of which will be out in the spring of 2014. In 2013 alone Mr.C has released his long awaited solo album Smell The Coffee, 3 solo singles & 2 Indigo Kidz releases on Superfreq. His Hechizo track for Get Physical, as well as remixes for Mikael Stavöstrand & David Scuba for Riff Raff, remixes for Joint Custody, Xo Chic & House of 909 all on Superfreq. This year Mr.C has released remixes as both Mr.C & Indigo Kidz on Affie Yusuf’s rebirth EP which was released on March 3rd 2014. With a stream of productions still to come out over the coming months, Mr.C is well a truly creating shockwaves with his recent production output.

Mr.C runs & promotes Superfreq events, which will celebrate being 12 years old in March 2014 & ran monthly at Mr.C's club The End until it closed down in January 2009. Superfreq functions bi-monthly in London, a bi-annual residency at the legendary nightclub Fabric & the rest of the time hopping around London’s warehouse venues.

    @Mask_Of_Anarchy, it has been know to happen & there's nothing to be scared of. When you're gazing into the minds eye, don't push your vision so far outwards, just about 4 or 5 cm in front of your eyebrows & relax a little more.

    @frankie Floorbanger, those early techno tunes where murder to mix, recorded to tape that stretches slightly, so the tempo isn't 100% constant & the tape edits are all over the place but that makes it more fun to mix, got to keep your eye on the ball. Also check the 2 copies live turntable remix of Nude Photo, starts from 17:40. ;)
