Tutor Mike Richardson has been involved in the music business for approaching a decade now, working as both a sound engineer & event manager, more recently concentrating on DJing and production. He has international recognition releasing music and taking in club and festival gigs all over the UK and abroad. With an eclectic taste, Mike brings together house, techno, electro, garage and even drum & bass, in ways that are sometimes surprising,… but always …bang on the money. His weekly ‘Retune FM Radio Show’ on Manchester’s Unity Radio, has brought with it an army of devotees, anxious to see where he will take us next.
Have a listen to Looking Back – Mike Richardson & Howard Sessions feat KT Forrester (Lost My Dog Records) to whet your appetite.
Mike has also released music on Retweak Records, and 3am Recordings and is currently developing a live set and a stack full of new tracks which he will roll out over the coming months. Having just got back from a tour of Thailand and with another to the US and Brazil on the horizon, this year looks set to be his best yet.
