Destructo (Gary Richards) began DJing and producing undergrounds in the early 90s in Los Angeles, most notably creating RaveAmerica at Knotts Berry Farm. Rick Rubin subsequently handpicked Gary for A&R in electronic music at Def American Recordings, launching a noteworthy career with such acts as Lords of Acid, Messiah, David Holmes, Basement Jaxx, Dub Pistols, God Lives Underwater and founding 1500 Records and Nitrus Records.
After carrying his success to the metal world with No Name Mgmt, Destructo returned to his roots in 2007 by creating HARD. HARD events such as the HARD Haunted Mansion have become synonymous with cutting edge electronic music and unforgettable experiences, where the talent rosters reflect Destructo’s own impeccable DJ sets.
This year alone, DESTRUCTO has rocked crowds alongside Rusko, Diplo, The Bloody Beetroots and Fatboy Slim as well as performing at international festivals WEMF and Australia’s Stereosonic. To kick off the New Year, he’ll helm the inaugural and epic HOLY SHIP!, which sets sail from Florida to The Bahamas and back. With a rocket-pack strapped to his back, DESTRUCTO’s mission is to conquer dance floors all across the globe. “I want to make people really dance,” he concludes. “I’m not talking about doing a little shuffle but genuinely rocking. I want them to bang their heads and have the time of their lives.”
Ultimately, with his album on the way and massive performances on the horizon, DESTRUCTO is doing exactly that – giving fans the time of their lives – and that’s one hell of a legacy.
