At 5pm est. we welcome Nigel Richards to our Friday Rotation. Nigel Richards is an internationally-recognized DJ, producer, and entrepreneur known for his unique music style and contributions to the dance music industry.
Richards discovered his passion for dance music during his undergraduate days at the University of Rochester in New York. There, he hosted a radio show titled “City Sounds from the Underground,” for three years on WRUR FM. The show exposed Richards to all genres of dance music, and Richards developed relationships within the industry as the station’s Program Director.
In 1993, Richards opened the doors to 611 Records, the iconic record store for dance music DJs, in his hometown of Philadelphia. Richards’ knack for branding evolved 611 Records from a local record store in Philadelphia to an international lifestyle brand synonymous with dance music and the DJ lifestyle.
Richards, who describes his music as “sexy, spooky, dark techno,” recalls the experience that inspired him to pursue his career as a DJ. In 1993, the same year that he opened 611 Records, Richards was asked to travel to Stuttgart, Germany to perform for 8,000 people. The energy from the room inspired him to devote his life to delivering music to the masses.
As the demand for DJ Nigel Richards’ music grew, 611 Records attracted more attention from DJs across the country and the globe. Richards saw the opportunity to grow the 611 brand through apparel. Richards explains, “When the store was open, we put the 611 label on everything.” As Richards traveled to new states and countries to play music each week, he sold 611 t-shirts and tossed 611 Records releases into the crowds. By the mid 1990s, Richards was distributing 611 apparel to dozens of stores across the country.
DJ Nigel Richards has released over forty vinyl records and performed in all fifty states and in more than twenty countries. Today, he continues his cause releasing music digitally with bits of sneaky 7″ limited vinyl collectors editions. His releases on labels such as Communique, USA, Omnis, Ireland, Phobiq, Italy, Incense, Spain, and many others will surely mean that his sounds will continue onward and worldwide.
His web presence is focused on his podcast available thru itunes or nigelrichards.podomatic.com and his 611 Lifestyle apparel brand at 611lifestyle.com.
At 8pm est. we head back to Germany for another edition Blindspot 150 feat. Ida Engberg
