The Bass Mint


In 1999, R/D and his former DJ partner were invited to help throw a party for the closing of Perry Farrell’s studio in Venice Beach, CA. They DJ’d for 6 hours, breaking only once for a debut of Perry’s new solo project. Several month’s later, R/D was invited to DJ in the Oasis dome at the very first Coachella music festival. These monumental events drew him straight to Los Angeles and the rest, as they say, is history. He went on to throw scores of parties in L.A., Dj’ing alongside Plaid, Squarepusher, Prefuse 73, Dntel, Jaimie Lidell, Luke Vibert, Nightmares on Wax, LFO, Chris Clark, and many other electronic acts of the early ’00’s.

Eventually R/D started making his own music on borrowed gear, hammering out glitched up IDM and electro on an MPC 2000. Luckily, the first tracks he ever wrote were later released on Andrea Parker’s UK label ‘Touchin’ Bass‘. As the era of Aphex Twin influenced IDM came to an end, R/D virtually hung up his hat, turning to film sound as a creative outlet. But, his musical nature was re-invigorated in 2007 when he moved in with pals edIT and Ooah, just as the Glitch Mob sound was forming. Feeding off the fresh energy of his incredibly talented roommates, he went back to the drawing board, developing his take on glitch-hop inspired tunes aimed at the dancefloor. His new sound fetched him gigs at Coachella with the Do Lab in 2007 and 2009, and put him on the West Coast festival circuit where he shared bills with Flying Lotus, Pretty Lights, Bassnectar, The Glitch Mob, Les Claypool, Cocoe Rosie, Caspa, Mala, Beats Antique, Mimosa, MartyParty and a laundry list of incredible talent.

Recently, R/D has traded the bleeps and bloops of glitch-hop for pure melody and song structure, and as his music matures, so does his career. In March of 2010, R/D unleashed an un-official remix of Fever Ray’s ‘I’m Not Done’, which reached #2 on both Hype Machine charts and reaped 27,000 listens in 3 days on SoundCloud alone. Several months later, he released an original, four track EP titled 'Face Of God'; the title track again landed him in the top #3 on Hype Machine's Twitter charts. So far this year, he has played live for a crowd of more than 2,000 at Coachella 2010 (the Do Lab stage), shared the stage with Nosaj Thing & Elliot Lipp at Lightning in a Bottle festival and played directly after Bassnectar for a crowd of nearly 5,000 dusty ravers at this year's Burning Man festival.

Currrently, R/D is working on an official Glitch Mob remix as well as a remix for Ball Of Waxx records, both due for release in September of this year. He's also cranking hard on a new, full-length album, due in early 2011.
