Being a central agent in South Africa’s electronic music scene, Richard the Third is a regular DJ at the country’s biggest music clubs such as The Assembly, Fiction, The Woods and Alexander Theatre. As one half of local dubstep warriors Biscope,, producer and performer for Spoek Mathamobo & Mshini Wam, Richard the Third’s sets are a roller-coaster ride of the best modern bass music: grinding electro, rising dubstep and everything in between. He has put his own music out on local labels such as African Dope and On A Break Records as well as producing and remixing with numerous other South African artists, including 340ml and Sibot. He describes his music as, “Somewhere between the warm waters of dub and downbeat and the rocky mountains of banging dancefloor electronica” Check out his track Boss, featuring Ribone.
