Richie began his DJ career way back in 1987 when early house music was all the rage in amongst an era which had many independant music shops stacked with many shelves full of the latest tunes on vinyl. Having seen the way music has progressed since then, there has always been an ethos in respect to the vinyl culture.
This ensures that wherever possible you know that Richie will always turn up to perform a DJ set with a bag full of 12" vinyl records. To see a DJ perform with vinyl, and to see a tune spinning and relating it to what you hear has a great impact on how an audience relates to the music. You will always notice an element of musicianship in amongst Richies DJ sets.
Thanks to the vinyl revival, and the relaunch of the legendary Technics petition (in which Richie oversaw the UK side of the petition started from a friend in Israel) the need to 'go digital' has now taken a back seat.
Speaking of the vinyl revival, Check out Richies show every Friday from 10PM on Air 107.2FM where you will be treated to a live set on the turntables.
