Richie Blacker joins the Spotlight Mix


The Belfast-based selector, DJ and producer, Richie Blacker who lives and breathes the classic Acid House, Rave and Italo House of his home turf and is one of the most significant up-and-coming talents in Ireland’s House & Techno scene.

Hailed as Danny Howard‘s Future Fire artist for 2021, Irish producer Richie Blacker has had a breakthrough year. Skyrocketing with his Summer Of Rave EP via Unsound Mind, the release was championed by Skream across multiple events way before its release. It landed at no.1 in the Beatport Chart for a month and continued the chart-toppers with tunes on Sasha‘s Last Night On Earth, Anjunadeep, Nothing Else Matters + more.

Just as comfortable connecting with crowds at large-scale raves, festivals and intimate clubs, Blacker takes listeners through every unpredictable twist and turn a set can take as he is a versatile artist who floats through the realms of this electronic underworld we call house & techno, and the emotionally-charged feeling he creates along the way with his music.

He has a fine ability to fuse together techno, rave, Italo disco and melodic house undertones in his DJ sets and productions. No signs of slowing down anytime soon, Richie is a skyrocketing talent to keep an eye on.

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.
