Pioneering and award winning Welsh DJ. Widely regarded along with his V2 Crew collective as the first people to bring and develop the then fledgling UK Garage sound into Wales during the mid to late nineties.
Richie was one of the founder presenters and part of the original line up on 1Xtra BBC, the UK's first national digital radio station, when it launched back in August 2002. He presented the station's weekly flagship garage show 'The Blueprint' for five years, which featured a who's who of the diverse UKG scene at the time, such as Dizzee Rascal, Wiley, MJ Cole, Todd Edwards, Tuff Jam, Kano, Tinchy Strider, Roll Deep, Lady Sovereign and many more.
Richie's direction changed after departing 1Xtra, where he has been pursuing house music. A new podcast is in the pipeline, which will bring the listeners the artists / producers behind some of the hottest music in underground circles.
