Transfixed and seduced by the movement and buying his first decks at 15 years old, DJ Filthy Rich learnt his art and style firstly in his bedroom playing and sampling Jungle tracks by DJ’s such as Hype, Groove Rider, Kenny Ken and Randall. This quickly developed into his “sound” which was soon being appreciated by friends and acquaintances at various house parties in and around South London.
These parties were well known for their competitive edge between up and coming DJ’s using the latest “test presses” and “dub plates” in an effort to find something fresh and new. The evolution to Drum & Base meant that at around this time Dillinger , J Magic and Lemon D were huge influences because of their dark and dirty beats bringing a completely new style and sound to Drum and Base.
Dj Filthy Rich’s passion and commitment to the cause soon had him playing small, local clubs spinning Jungle and Drum & Base tunes.
