Mr.C chats Music, Producer tips, Live Streaming on the BOOST Podcast
Superfreq boss, UK legend Mr.C is a veteran of the tech-house scene, (real name Richard West) has repped some of the scene’s biggest labels, with Wagon Repair, Get Physical, Poker Flat among those he’s repped over the years.
Now based in LA, The one-time Shamen frontman has embarked on a rich vein of form of late with new podcast platform, Superfreq releases, live streams and more. He’s been outspoken around BIG topics such as rape within the scene.
He started MCing in London clubs aged 16 & soon earned a reputation as a fast-talking vivacious rapper working with LWR radio’s Ron Tom, Jasper the Vinyl Junkie & Jazzy M. Mr.C then hooked up with Colin Faver & Evil Eddie Richards to became resident rapper at the legendary Camden Palace in London, going on to MC for Colin Faver on the then illegal pirate radio station Kiss FM. Mr.C went into the studio to record his 1st house track with Eddie Richards as Myster-E which was released in August 1987.
I was very lucky to chat to Mr.C about music, labels, streaming, demos and promoting. He also gave me his 5 things producers need to know and we also chatted about the death of Erick Morillo, rape prevention and the scene as a whole.
