TOTD // 02/02 // Rich NxT

Published: February 2, 2018, words by Watch The Hype

As one of FUSE’s original residents, Rich NxT played a major part in the brand’s evolution, helping take it from its afterparty roots to one of the most respected events and labels on the planet. Taking influence from London’s drum and bass and jungle rave scene, and later the minimal and house scenes, the DJ/producer also runs two of his own imprints: NxT Records and What NxT. His trademark sound has supplied many defining moments for the labels, and now his latest release ‘The Brigade’ EP marks his seventh contribution to the FUSE establishment that has generated great anticipation among the followers of his sound. Coinciding with ‘The Brigade’, Rich NxT has chosen four tracks for us today and below he explains his rooted theme:

“We all have the tunes which we just can’t stop going back to. It’s always a big buzz when I realise it’s been a while since I last played one and decide to take it that weekend. All of these tracks are from between 2005-2009 which was a time where I picked up lots of lasting influences.” – Rich NxT

Rich NxT ‘The Brigade’ EP is out today on vinyl on Fuse London.

“I was heavily influenced by the output of M_Nus during this time. I loved how so many of the releases were intelligent and atmospheric with subtle funk and playfulness in the groove, which would always elevate and set the music apart from the rest.”

“This is one of my favourite tracks of all-time which just destroys time and time again. It’s an unusual groove, not banging on the 4 and not a roller or breaker either. Some magical combination that you can’t quite put your finger on, that meets as one solid lump of sound. And the drop… well….wow!

“The loop just goes on. I first heard this at the legendary Public Life in London. It felt like the track went on 20 mins and never stopped driving. A real gem – well produced, straight up and not afraid to showcase the lovely melody.”

“I dug this back out aboard Hoppetosse in 2016 for the first FUSE party there and I really love it. It’s a 15 minute journey through groove, acid, weirdness, funk, minimal. It’s insane and amazing, and the wicked thing is everyone gets it on the dancefloor!”
