RICH JONES


Rich Jones has been beavering away in the studio honing his art for nearly a decade, and has been recently making a name for himself on Alan Fitzpatrick’s 8-Sided Dice label, with a string of big room baiting Techno bombs, and consistently being in Richie Hawtin’s twitter tracklist since summer 2009. One of the new truly underground breakthrough stars of Techno to emerge from the South-Coast UK scene, along with local producer-friends Reset Robot and Alan Fitzpatrick, Rich has wowed the international Techno scene with his powerful, yet intricate and hypnotic, musical work-outs. His track ‘Choronzon’ was a massive hit during the summer of 2010, and, aided by a beastly remix by another UK Techno stalwart, Harvey Mckay, the ‘Choronzon’ Ep went onto be one of 8-Sided Dice’s most popular releases to date. His music has been played everywhere from Fabric in London, to the Womb Club in Tokyo, via clubs and festivals the world over, with scene kingpins such as Richie Hawtin, Adam Beyer, Slam, Joel Mull, Cari Lekebusch, Dubfire, John Selway, Mark Broom, Josh Wink and many more supporting and playing Rich’s plethora of hypnotic Techno tools. With releases and remixes out on 8-Sided Dice, Sleaze Recordings, Phobiq, and DID Records, and a forthcoming release on the mighty Soma, Rich has cemented himself firmly as a major player in the international Techno scene, and a true UK innovator, with his unique sound. Splicing intricate percussion layers with tribal tinged grooves, on an aural foundation of dystopian futurism, Rich’s Sci-Fi Techno soundscapes will be soundtracking the hottest nights on the planet for a long time to come...
