Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Richie has been a firm lover of DJ'ing from the young age of 14, to buying his first pair of Technics 1210's at 16 playing and collecting vinyl to now at 29 his sole purpose when DJ'ing still being to provide people with music to make them sit up and think whats that tune when listening to his sets or mixes. He started out listening to old Progressive House mixes from the likes of Sasha, John Digweed, Nick Warren, Danny Howells, Dave Seaman, Hernan Cattaneo, Luke Fair and Paul Oakenfold collecting Global Underground and Renaissance cds etc, staying up late listening to old essential mixes on radio 1, listening to any sets he could from these guys back then and following the likes of them from club to club. Even today although the direction of his music has changed slightly he is still a firm lover of the Progressive House/breaks Sound of the late 90's/early 2000's and you will most likely hear him drop one of those old Progressive/Breaks tunes in his sets towards the end of a mix or night, however he has taken a more Deep House, Nu Disco, Disco Prog route in his musical and DJ'ing style as sounds and DJs evolve. He loves to play sets that keep people dancing never relenting on the melodies and uplifting vibe he conjures up with his tunes.
In 2010 into 2011 Richie gained a residency in his home City of Sunderland in the UK at a local trendy bar called Bar Justice. Aswell as playing in London for Nuestra Casa various times which is a firm favourite amongst the dance and clubbing scene in London due to its upfront sounds and diverse selection of DJ's who have played for it, the likes of Desyn Maseillo, Danny Howells, Rowan Blades,Steve Porter, Balerik (Erik Molthe), Tom Morgan and Medway all playin for the night in the last few years. You can still find Richie supporting and a regular at the night even when not DJ'ing himself.
Richie also puts together a monthly Podcast on Pure.FM called Seamless showcasing his musical taste and direction aswell as showcasing his favourite Deep Nu Disco and Disco Prog producers/DJs who are making waves in this scene at the minute in hour 2 off the show, so keep an eye out for this first Monday of every month between 5-7pm and any of Richie's gigs in the future.
