About Me

  • Bio
    RichoKidd is a local DJ/Rapper/Producer residing from and growing up in Perth, W.A

    He has been following the local hip hop scene since around late 2008/early 2009, and was a fan of international hip hop for many years before that. After listening to releases from artists like Hunter, Downsyde and Drapht (as well as acts from all over Australia), RichoKidd instantly fell in love with not only the music, but the culture that hip hop represents.

    By 2010 RichoKidd had been watching people he looked up to perform, and write music he loved, for around two years. He thought to himself; "I want that! I want the admiration that I give to these guys. I want to be up there performing my heart out to a crowd of people who all know my name". For a long time he felt he would never go anywhere and kept his music pretty much to himself and would occasionally freestyle in front of close friends and parties. It wasn’t until one night after a gig he was freestyling to his friends and a stranger complimented him and said “do you write music, cause I’d love to hear it?”

    After a few years of laziness and half-assness (not even a word) he decided it was time to actually put some effort in. So he started working on his first project Next Level. A FREE digital mixtape featuring some original beats and some jacked. After performing unheard music from the mixtape he decided to take some time off performing to put together the free release.

    After the initial release of Next Level, and a positive reception, he chose hung up his pad and pen and put his hands back on the decks.

    Now its 2015 he has decided to continue with both elements of this thing called hip hop. Currently working on his debut E.P with production from local Perth producer/MC Soma as well as DJing for Parkbench Philosophers and many other projects, I would suggest keeping an eye out for this kid, as he has nowhere but up to go!

  1. ADJF Monthly Mix [April] - Rap & Hip Hop

  3. Name 5 things that make for a good DJ

    I think its going to take a lot more then "5 things" to be considered a "good" DJ. I mean personality, crowd control (or "reading"), music collection, music SELECTION; they're all a crucial part, but it also depends on your ability to listen well, and understand how different music can work together, understanding keys, bpms, etc are also important. The list goes on!
  4. Beginner, need some controller advice

    It depends if you are a Serato or Traktor user too, I have the Traktor Kontrol S4 and I love it, I probably didn't even need to go with the S4 and, if you're just starting out, the S2 might be a bit of a better option as it is a smaller unit.
  5. Back after a few years

  9. SFX Entertainment files for bankruptcy

    The reason all festivals are starting to fail is they don't have an escape plan if shit hits the proverbial fan. If tickets don't sell as well as they projected, they aren't just gonna cancel, instead, they borrow to pay acts and staff and oh so many different variables. That being said, so much more goes into it then we could every really understand. I'd hate to be in the position they're in now.
  10. Source: http://inthemix.junkee.com/sfx-entertainment-has-filed-for-bankruptcy/137527 SFX – the American company that owns dance music brands like Beatport, Tomorrowland and Stereosonic – has filed for bankruptcy. After a year of financial struggle, the company has today filed for a Chapter 11 bankruptcy in the US, a move that will help them to wipe $300 million of debt and continue to operate as normal – at least for now. A deal struck with bondholders will convert part of that debt into equity in SFX, which has been taken off the stock market and will now be run as a privately-owned company. But SFX founder Robert Sillerman will step down as CEO of the company, remaining on-board instead as Chairman. “Of course this was not where we thought we’d be but with this restructuring we have the opportunity to achieve all that SFX can and will be. I’m looking forward to continuing to be part of the new SFX as Chairman,” he said. “We will immediately commence a search for a new CEO to lead us as we continue to set the trend in the exploding culture that is electronic music.” In 2012, as “EDM” exploded in the US, SFX begun acquiring various brands and promoters as part of Sillerman’s $1 billion plan to conquer dance music. The company currently owns or holds a large stake in events like Tomorrowland and its troubled American offshoot TomorrowWorld, plus Mysteryland, Electric Zoo and Australia’s own Stereosonic, who have been contacted for comment. Beatport, which was acquired by SFX in 2013, has assured that the bankruptcy won’t affect their operations. “For all of us here at Beatport, it’s just business as usual,” they said in a statement issued today. “That means entire Beatport platform is fully operational without restriction. The store remains open. The streaming service continues uninterrupted. New releases are being added every day. New videos are being scheduled and filmed. Payments to labels and suppliers are ongoing in their usual manner.” SFX’s highly-publicised financial difficulties include defaulting on a USD$10.8 million loan last month and missing a $3 million interest payment in January. The company’s share price on the New York Stock Exchange fell from $927 million in December 2013 to just $9.5 million in January 2016.

  13. Perth Member - RichoKidd - Newbie (My Big Plans)

    Woah. Bit of a step back in time on this thread. Well, here's a "where is he now" post. I've become a pretty well respected DJ in the hip hop community, as well as an MC. I have now linked up with some other MC's and formed a crew called New Found Heights. I have performed at countless shows and even was lucky enough to support SBX on their last tour. I'm still doing weddings and birthdays for extra coin (which usually goes right back into equipment purchased). It's good to be back on ADJF full time!
  14. Dank Presents ~ BASS SHOWCASE - ft. JFB

    2016 is here and we are starting off the year with a BANG..Dank Presents...~~~~ JFB - (2015 UK DMC CHAMPION) ~~~~3 x UK DMC Champion & all round party rocking DJ!JFB is definitely an artist to regularly look out for. His successes have mainly been obtained from his technical ability to smash lots of differently styled events, crossing all the musical genres from Jazz, Funk, Soul, Hiphop, Dubstep, Glitch Hop, Electroswing, Ghetto Funk, Breakbeat, & Drum & Bass.In recent years the art of turntabilism has become very popular again with new equipment and techniques such as video scratching, instant sample creation and midi button bashing, representing a dramatic change in direction within the discipline for more musical ears. Few other artists have been at the forefront of these fresh developments than Brighton’s very own JFB, a scratch DJ and party rocker extraordinaire who has won the UK DMC Championships in 2007, 2011 and 2015! Yet unlike many turntablists, JFB also knows when to stop beat-juggling and start dropping bombs - ultimately it’s all about making the people dance. This is an artist who’s fully immersed in bass culture and therefore many of the tunes you will hear him spin, will be his own special edits and remixes. He has a multitude of successful videos on Facebook & Youtube, with millions of views! You can check out JFB's scratch routines, live gigs, tracks, video scratch routines & collaborations.. see for yourself by typing 'JFB' into youtube or google. JFB has collaborated with many respected artists, such as doing remixes and dj mixes for Fatboy Slim who quoted 'JFB is the thinking man's Grandmaster Flash'. Plus he was the resident scratch DJ for Rob Da Bank on Radio 1 during 2013/2014. Not to mention his partner in crime Beardyman where they have joined forces for their many Battlejam projects. JFB has played a stupid amount of amazing festivals, clubs, venues & parties such as 'Big Beach Boutique 2008' in Brighton, a regular favourite at Rob Da Bank's Bestival, plus other festivals like…LoveBox, BigBeach Festival in Japan, E4's Underbelly, Secret Garden Party, Big Chill, Beach Break, Greenman, Sunrise, Glade, Eden, Balter, Symmetry, Lindisfarne, Valleyfest, not to mention Glastonbury Hell Stage Shangri-La, Boomtown’s newest stage Banghai Palace and Ghetto Funk’s own festival Shindig. He has also performed at International festivals like Shambhala (Canada), Rabbits Eat Lettuce & Rainbow Serpent (Australia) and Wicked Summer Fest (Italy). On the corporate side, he has been seen scratching throughout the London 2012 OLYMPICS in the BMX arena and video scratched for the UK NFL Fan Rally in Trafalgar Square. In conclusion, if you let JFB loose on a pair of turntables and a mixer, he will make sure your party goes off with a double bang…producing mind blowing results that are just jaw-dropping!
