Many artists in today’s very noisy music industry find it hard to gain support from heavy, influential players. For Montreal’s most exciting young producer, Richie G, this has truly never been a problem. Championed by legends like John Digweed, Eric Prydz, Sasha, Hernan Cattaneo, Guy Gerber, and more, you’ve likely heard a Richie G track played out at your favourite club in the past year.
It has been a whirlwind of success for Richie. Officially remixing Guy Gerber’s “Steady," as well as Hernan’s "Citycism," one of his highlights came in a huge push of support from the Queen of Techno herself, Nicole Moudaber. He released a smashing three track EP on Mood Records, stepping away from the more emotional side of deep house to delve into club-life techno.
Richie G’s latest track, “Puzzle Love,” will be released on Bedrock’s brand new Underground Ibiza Sounds compilation on July 7th. Contrasting a menacing kick with atmospheric synth pads and punishing drum programming, “Puzzle Love” is a hard-hitting techno track that is sure to be one of the highlights of the comp. Incredible vocal sampling from Richie, followed by that distinct, dark synth work true to his sound wraps this track as a dancefloor heater. Think peaktime at your favourite dark club, or afterhours well into your Ibiza nights. There’s no accident that “Puzzle Love” is included in a compilation named after the Mecca of dance music, because that’s right where it belongs.
