— Tell us more about yourself. What is a story behind the artist "Richi Risco"?
— I suppose that my interest for music has been on my insides since I can remember. From an early age, I've had the necessity to collect music, search for new things and make my own compilations with cassette tapes so I could give them to my friends. To be honest, I've always looked at music as one of the most beautiful treasures of this world.
I've had a punk adolescence and I've also listened to a lot of Reggae, Hip-Hop, Funk, Disco... until around the year 2000, when I got interested by House Music. Specifically at that time, the House music coming from San Francisco with Grahound Recs and the big DJ Garth. The first thing I loved about that style, is a key term in my personality as a DJ/Producer: the fusion of various genres. That San Francisco House had a lot of Funk, Afro, Disco... That first approach, got me also interested on New York's, Detroit's and Chicago's scene. House music changed my life!
