Collaboration featured on the brand new installment of StripJointsMusic
If there was a “hall of fame” for EDM and house music, Gary Richards—aka, Destructo—would be in it. He is a 25-year veteran of the genre, and is one of the founders of the Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC), arguably the biggest electronic music dance festival in the world. He was handpicked by legendary record producer and founder of Def Jam/Def American Recordings, Rick Rubin, to head the company’s Electronic music division, where Richards would develop such acts as Lords of Acid and God Lives Underwater. He went on to form his own record labels (Nitrus Records and 1500 Records), and in 2007 launched HARD Events, a concert brand which puts on popular EDM festivals.
