In a city brimming with the best music innovators past and present, Rick is a prominent Detroit identity who has firmly influenced the revered musical spirit of the Motor City. His now closed record store Vibes, supplied the best of the best with the records that changed the way the world danced. Rick has worked alongside electronic music luminaries such as Juan Atkins and Derrick May and is the oft-forgot, but vital member of the 3 Chairs, with Marcellus Pittman, Theo Parrish and Kenny Dixon Jnr aka Moodymann.
Rick encompasses every facet of a true DJ that we admire and aspire to. A versatile music selector – with DJ sets including R & B, Hip Hop, Techno and his favoured House and Disco. A pioneering producer – with seminal releases on labels such as KDJ, Stilove4music and Rush Hour – and a long time party promoter. Rick has learned over his 24 year career in the music industry that it takes more than a few good records to create everything that a party needs to be.
Rick will be given the keys to One22 and we will let him play for as long as he wants – so expect something big! Boasting an amazing Klipsch Sound System coupled with Boom Boom E&S DJR400 Rotary Mixer this intimate 200 capacity venue is surely going to be the place to be!
Support from Boom Boom Resident Daniel Lupica and special guest Claire Morgan and Magda Bytnerowicz
