Today we have another fantastic interview for you guys. We sat down with producer Rich Pinder, responsible for the track ‘Lost Soul‘ alongside Billy Kenny that we raved about a few months back.
Our readers would love to get to know you a little bit better. Where are you from, when did you start producing, and what’s your favorite track you’ve made so far?
Im from Doncaster South Yorkshire, I took an interest in music production about 5 years ago and only in the last 2 years or so have i been more serious about it. My favorite track so far would have to be between ‘NO NO NO” or Nothing although i do have a couple of nice unreleased bits.
What has been your favorite gig so far in 2014?
My Favorite gig this year…..erm there has been so many and i have worked with some great promoters/brands this year but the one that stands out the most for me has to be S2S Festival @ Bowlers Manchester, crowd there was awesome.
We’ve been really impressed with not only your original tracks, but also with your collabs with Billy Kenny. How did you meet up with him? What’s it like when you are in the studio together?
Thanks, Me and Billy met about 4 years ago when we had our first studio session. I’ve learnt a lot from Billy, sessions are always good as we share a similar taste in music and bounce off each other well.
Speaking of Billy Kenny, your collaboration ‘Wondering’ is coming out soon on BlocBeatz. How did this track come to be and how did you get hooked up with BlocBeatz?
Blocbeatz actually contacted me regarding my collab with Chris Gresswell ‘Back’ and then spotted ‘Wondering’ so given the sound of these to tracks it seemed the right the label to go with given there previous releases.
What’s in store for the rest of the year?
2014 so far for me has been a great year having some great release on some wicked labels, I’ve played some great events all over the UK and in June i went out to Austria to play a rooftop party in the Austrian Alps. I’ve got some great things lined up for the next few months, collaborations, remixes and original tracks working with the talented Chrystal (RogueHeart) who I’ve work with previously. Im playing in Holland for the PUUR Festival alongside Hector Couto & Josh Butler, Malia in August for INSOMNIA in the sun with Sleepin’ is cheating’ then over to Hanover in Germany for This Ain’t Bristol as well as all my UK dates.
Now for a kind of fun one. If you weren’t making music, what would you do for a living?
Funny you should ask this haha, i actually work in the day for a local company specialising in crash repair parts for cars.
What are your favorite tracks at the moment?
I have so many lol, I really like Josh Butlers stuff also Jamie George x Tom Shorterz – Wot You Do, i could go on for ages here but those stand out for me at the moment haha.
We’ll be supporting ‘Wondering’ and ‘Back’ as they release soon on Blocbeatz!
