Dubbed the David Lynch of Techno by Data Transmission, Richard Seeley is fast defining his own eclectic soundscape with his an array of productions.
An old hand behind the decks, Seeley had been dabbling in production for years before a slight shove from good friend Andreas Georgiades, sent his first sound waves spiralling into the industry. His first release, O.C.D on the Juicy Vermin EP on Tim Sheridan’s veryverywrong Indeed label, got a 4-star review in IDJ magazine and hit the spot with dj’s around the world. It garnered support from Mr C (Superfreq/the end), Jeff Samuel (trapez/pokerflat) and Mike Monday (playtime), scored radioplay by Terry Francis on John Digweeds Transitions radio show and Juicy Vermin was licensed onto Ellen Allien’s artist mix compilation Boogy Bytes 4.
Being recognised as a producer before a DJ, Richard took stock of the impact and spent a generous year honing his production skills to an art. Honouring an ode to perfection when it comes to his music and sitting on tracks for a long time before they’re allowed to come out to play; Richard’s ideas form a life of their own, leaping from his studio, into the charts with intention of forming the soundtrack to your best nights out.
Recent salut’s to his work includes Radio Slave charting his track Mas Profundo the title track from the EP on Rek’d (Rekids digital label) at No 1 on his epic Sex Mania @ the Berghain Chart on Beatport & John Digweed opening his Transitions show with Curly Bubbles on Kiss FM. Richard’s abstract escapism knows no boundaries; with VVWI as his first platform, no fish is too strange for their aquarium, allowing him to indulge and cultivates his ‘lynch’ labelled quirks.
Richard’s activity in music and events spans 15 years, with parties in London, his hometown of Dunstable (Seeley prefers Unstable) and Poland under the guise of Juicy Vermin. His penchant for raw chugging deep house and techno is normally the order of the day, night and morning after, and his recent epic year of production has given him fresh perspective in working the main room into an eclectic state.
In the booth, Seeley’s gig journey has seen him rinse some of the best venues in London’s club circuit history; The Key, The Cross, Turnmills, Egg, Rhythm Factory and Matter, playing alongside the likes of Tim Sheridan, Mr C, Shane Watcha, Black Strobe, Morgan Geist, Guido Schneider and Hot chip. Regular bookings in Lodz, Poland at the OIOM Klub have seen him stretch him flex his plastic in Europe, with more Euro-bound adventures on the horizon.
With 2010 galloping along, Seeley will be launching his own Imprint. Glue Music. Expect Seeley’s raw, deep emotion with some low slung vibes for the debut EP by the head honcho himself, with a remix by Bruno Pronsato. Releases by new and established artists will follow with Seeley insisting this is new music that will get stuck on you. Hence the name.
