(Big Fish Recordings // Canada)
Don't let the name fool you as this rapidly rising electro star is far from lazy – in a little over 3 years since he first went into the studio Lazy Rich has scored more chart-topping releases than most DJ's achieve in a lifetime. The vibrant energy found within his productions has opened his name to a diverse range of support within the electronic scene; fans of his sound include heavyweight underground players such as Armand Van Helden, Felix Da Housecat, Sander Kleinenberg and Carl Cox through to household names like Paul Oakenfold, Fedde Le Grand, Roger Sanchez and David Guetta.
A UK native now residing in Canada, Lazy Rich has gone on to scale impressive heights in a short space of time. With remixing credits under his belt for Fatboy Slim, Deadmau5, X-Press-2, Studio B and Miles Dyson, Rich has quickly found his music featuring on radio shows such as Pete Tong, Judge Jules and Kissy Sell Out on BBC Radio 1, whilst being record-checked on compilations from Ministry of Sounds 'Clubbers Guide to Summer 2010' and the Hed Kandi Series through to album packs like Wax:On and Big & Dirty House Sounds 2010; proving his unique ability to produce credible underground music whilst appealing to wider audiences with both his record sales and radio airplay.
With his solo productions Rich has since demonstrated his prowess as a forward thinking, cutting edge producer talent. His style of gut-wrenchingly intense, obnoxiously funky and audaciously epic house music has put countless big records in his musical arsenal already, and paved the way for him to create his own niche in the scene.
Using his rapidly rising profile, Rich has put his new found opportunities to much use launching his own imprint 'Big Fish Recordings'. The label is a platform for developing his own sound whilst building a production family with a plethora of artists from across the globe - making the label "one to watch" for the future.
But it isn't just his productions which have been receiving such high praise of late. Throughout Canada and America, Rich has made regular appearances for clubs from New York to Los Angeles, which has led to a solid fan base throughout North America's club scene. Elsewhere Rich has been performing electrifying shows to capacity crowds at events throughout Asia, Australasia and Europe with shows for clubs in Ibiza, South Korea and UK.
With a slew of new production projects forthcoming along with slated remixes for Bob Sinclar, Hatiras and Adam K, as well as the demand for Rich's DJ sets reaching fever pitch throughout the international scene with promoters in destinations such as Brazil, Guatemala, Mexico, China, Russia and Spain all vying for his name on their line ups, the future looks incredibly bright for this rapidly rising star.
