Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Starting out his club life in London back in the 1990’s at Trade (Turnmills), Love Muscle (The Fridge), and numerous illegal raves in the UK and Europe, rickthebeard quickly learned to love House Music in all it’s forms; from Hard House to Handbag to NRG and Acid-Core.
rickthebeard desperately craved the decks and was soon learning and mixing in his front room on cheap decks at every opportunity. This became an obsession and he wanted more, so he joined forces with his closest friend (@NeilDowne) and together they created a mixing duo called Sugarfree. Together they DJ’d at private parties across London and ran a couple of weekly pre & post club events in Central London called Fierce (Soho & Kings Cross), this ran it’s course and eventually came to a natural end. rickthebeard then got on with family life and eventually slowly left his decks behind.
15 years later rickthebeard picked up his headphones again, but this time he plugged them into his laptop and his new decks became virtual ones. Today rickthebeard mixes with mp3 files, not direct drive Technics and vinyl like in the 90’s ;)
rickthebeard is available for a regular residence or a try-out in a dance club somewhere in the metropolis. If there is a club out there willing to take a step into the future then contact rickthebeard now!!
