Gary Richards is a veteran to the dance music scene, whether it be throwing raves since the ’90s or behind the decks as Destructo. Having played his fair share of vinyl sets in his multi-decade career, the HARD events captain makes his AXIS debut by heading back in time for a special, vinyl-only TimeWarp mix.
It’s clear from the tracklist that Richards has dug deep into the crates to find the selections for his hour-long mix as it contains a number of artists that newer dance fans may not be familiar with. However, for those who have been around since Destructo’s early days, this collection of cuts from old school favorites like Happy Mondays, Coral Way Chiefs, Brothers Love Dubs, and more will provide a refreshing break from dance music’s current trends.
