Rich NxT confirms debut album on FUSE London, ‘Know The Score’

Share

A producer for 20 years and with 11 EPs on FUSE London to his name, vital collective member Rich NxT presents ‘Know the Score’, his debut album.

The 10-track work takes inspiration from every major period of the artist’s life, from his days listening to pirate radio absorbing the sounds of jungle and hardcore, to his ongoing involvement in bands as a drummer going back to his teenage years inspired by his Trinidadian father, a member of the Windrush generation, who played in Calypso bands.

Rich’s all-important (and eternal!) status as a diehard raver also played an essential shaping role, led by his experiences in East London’s vibrant party scene in the mid-noughties, before his pivotal time as a FUSE resident begun in 2008 at 93 Feet East. But most crucially this is the producer looking forward, extending himself in the studio and developing his sound into new and exciting forms.

The long-player also sees him further develop his collaborative work with vocalists, notably Shyam P who previously featured on Circus Recordings and Strictly Rhythm. He lends his voice and lyricism to ‘Natural’ and ‘Other Side’. The former had its big stage debut at Paradise’s event at the Warehouse Project, while ‘Other Side’ became an after-hours anthem at Hoppetosse and BRET, all during 2019.

“This album is an expression of myself and the range of music that has influenced me. A body of work that is just as fun on the dancefloor, as it is at home on headphones. It’s a culmination of the FUSE London EPs I have released so far and also a new beginning.”— Rich NxT

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
