Filthy Rich is an artist and producer who commands respect and whose soul breathes and thrives on his unfaltering passion for music. His DJ performances are flawless and he never dictates his own tastes to the crowd, instead he is aware and in tune with their reactions, making him incredibly popular with the coolest underground clubbers and big room house lovers alike. His tight mixes and twisted sounds mean no-one ever vacates the dancefloor dissatisfied. Switching from jackin house to sleazy tech-house, to dirty electro with the odd old classic thrown in, Filthy Rich delivers perfection on the decks time after time.
Like only the truly determined can, Rich has effortlessly risen to the top with skill and precision. Over the years this has earned himself prestigious residencies with international brands such as Kissdafunk, the glamorous Hat Club, and underground masters VeryVeryWrongIndeed. He is a bi-monthly regular spinning at London’s Ministry of Sound supporting the likes of Roger Sanchez and Steve Angello, proving he has the versatility to crowd-please wherever he goes.
The Filthy Rich infamy is rapidly swelling around the globe. In the last year his international dates have included such far-flung hotspots as India, Mexico, Ukraine, Dubai, Denmark, Brazil, Israel & Miami.
A multi-dimensional artist, Rich is known not only for his dancefloor triumphs but also for a cache of hot productions. His talent and skills in the studio have seen his tracks signed to CR2, Toolroom’s 'Leaders Of The New School' label, Big Love, Nervous, Audio Damage and Dutch imprint Spinnin.
In the last year, he held the topspot in the DJ Download and Trackitdown charts for several weeks with ‘Music Is Moving’ on Big In Ibiza. The track was originally released back in 1992 and has been remixed by everyone from Tony De Vit (R.I.P), to Tall Paul to BK. Filthy Rich was brought on board to bring the classic dance anthem bang up to date with a 2009 twist. That hit was quickly followed by a remix of the Southside Spinners’ classic ‘Luvstruck’ on Floorplay, which has now been signed up for inclusion on the forthcoming official re-issue package.
Control Freq (Rich’s own label) adds yet another component to his successes. His Control Freq label reflects Rich’s intensely enthusiastic and forward thinking attitude to dance music. Open-minded, fresh and refusing to stick to one sound – the one thing that is guaranteed is music of the finest quality. Huge tracks from Prok & Fitch, Adam Sharpe and Dirty Secretz were particularly well-received, while forthcoming club monsters are on cue from Benny Royal, Disfunktion and Rich himself.
In total, Rich has clocked up an electrifying discography of over 50 productions and re-mixes. In addition to being played on Radio 1 and gaining support from the likes of Steve Lawler, Tiesto and Carl Cox, he has also completed winning remixes for artists including Peter Gelderblom, Sidney Samson, and Seamus Haji.
Rich is also one half of the incredibly respected techno d.o.n.s … SPEKTRE specialising in driving techno. Spektre’s razor-sharp beats in both their DJ sets and live performances have drawn favour from heavyweights like Sven Vath, Carl Cox, Dubfire, Laurent Garnier and James Zabiela. Spektre experiments unmercifully with new sounds, their releases and live sets have been menacing dance floors ever since the project was born. Their productions have featured on Renaissance, Global Underground, Yoshitoshi, Great Stuff and Blufin as well as releasing a ‘Live At Glade Festival’ album on VVVWI.
The future is set to hold an abundance of tempting offerings from the Filthy Rich studio - with his thirst for new music and a whole host of tricks up his sleeve. Rich’s strength is his diversity and this ensures he is going straight to the top. Without a spare date in sight for the next six months, it’s clear, when it comes to Rich, rules are made to be broken and the future is FILTHY!
