Rich NxT: “Know the Score’ album”
“This album is an expression of myself and the range of music that has influenced me. A body of work that is just as fun on the dancefloor, as it is at home on headphones. It’s a culmination of the FUSE London EPs I have released so far and also a new beginning.” – Rich NxT
A producer for 20 years and with 11 EPs on FUSE London to his name, vital collective member Rich NxT presents ‘Know the Score’, his debut album.
The 10-track work takes inspiration from every major period of the artist’s life, from his days listening to pirate radio absorbing the sounds of jungle and hardcore, to his ongoing involvement in bands as a drummer going back to his teenage years inspired by his Trinidadian father, a member of the Windrush generation, who played in Calypso bands. Rich’s all-important (and eternal!) status as a diehard raver also played an essential shaping role, led by his experiences in East London’s vibrant party scene in the mid-noughties, before his pivotal time as a FUSE resident begun in 2008 at 93 Feet East. But most crucially this is the producer looking forward, extending himself in the studio and developing his sound into new and exciting forms.
The final work explores the full breadth of the house genre, traversing breakbeats, low-fi sound explorations, uplifting vocal cuts and plenty of his own trademark wonky acid excursions.
