Test Match Special with Richie Vegas (February '19)

Test Match Special with Richie Vegas (February '19)

Chart positions

This show was 83rd in the global funk chart and 97th in the global jazz chart.

Richie Vegas cut his DJing teeth in his late teens - messing about with hip hop and breaks - before plundering his family’s record collections and forging a sound that includes soul, funk, jazz, afrobeat and reggae.

An integral member of the Jiggery Pokery collective running eclectic hip hop nights in Liverpool and beyond - Rich’s distinctive style has found him playing countless gigs over the intervening 15 years: holding residences at some of the finest bars and clubs, and supporting visiting dignitaries such as Lee Scratch Perry, Hot 8 Brass Band, Don Letts, Seun Kuti and Egypt 80.

Test Match Special is an opportunity to showcase a selection of tunes that doesn't quite fit with live DJ sets, explore less-travelled paths and distill 20 years of musical musings. Expect lost monsters, obscure reworkings, stubborn earworms and wickets galore.
