At the age of 9 he was being injected by his father’s disco music, (including the dance and techno beats that he had listened to everyday), another DJ was born. Richard began to quench his DJ interests and began hitting the CD decks, which were invading the industry at the time. After a few years of showing passion for the craft and music (Richard's father was convinced that this wasn't a passing fad), had bought him his first set of turntables.
Today, the passion still escalates and is incorporated with constant energy and trademark crowd interaction at every show around the globe. Including US DJ residencies in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, NYC, Connecticut, Florida and Arizona.
