Destructo: "In the past, it was just a big party. Now it's about the message"
Gary Richards sheds light on what's ahead after a year of big changes
Los Angeles hero Gary Richards (also known as Destructo) has had quite a year of changes. After leaving behind his own company HARD - the umbrella company of HARD Summer and Holy Ship! - and making the jump over to a new position at LiveStyle, the company created from the remnants of what was formerly known as SFX, it's no surprise that Richards has plenty updates to share about upcoming music, tours and of course, brand new event excursions.
Also included in this week's episode, co-hosts Valerie and Harrison also discuss a variety of current and controversial topics like drum 'n' bass artist Mistabishi's racist comments, Madam X's uninvited interruption on Holy Ship and a DJ taking his shot to DJ Prince Harry's wedding.
Our top premieres this week feature standout gems from Harvard Bass & SHADED, Sebo K, Tiga and Darius Syrossian.
