Hailing from the breakbeat epicenter of Orlando, Florida, Filthy Rich is quickly making a big name for himself both domestically and internationally. He has been deejaying around North America for the more than a decade, playing one-off parties and holding down residencies. Filthy Rich has jumped head first into the world of music production, knocking out solid releases for Funk Wax, Yes Mate Recordings, Kinetic, as well as some cheeky underground “remixes”. He records under various aliases including Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Darkliner, Pokey Lottapuss, and Mellow Drumaddict.
Filthy’s biggest accomplishment came in late 2001 when he and production partner Dave London were signed to a multi-record deal with the UK’s Distinctive Breaks. They are in good company being label mates with breakbeat heavyweights Hybrid and Way Out West. They are proud to be the first North American breakers to be signed to this exclusive label. The single entitled “Twisted” was released this two 12”s featuring remixes by Future Funk Squad and appeared on the Y4K album.
Filthy Rich & Dave London’s recent releases include remixes of the UK progressive breaks hit Monsoon: Africa, Sipping Soma : Super Conscious, Speedo’s Fat Beat (as heard on the Levi’s commercial), as well as the two breakbeat mixes of Oakenfold’s Perfecto classic Ascension “Someone”. Rich gave Oakenfold a copy of the remix when he played in Orlando. A week later Paul called him personally to give praise and proceeded to play the record live from New York City on MTV for millions of viewers watching at home.
Touring to support the music he loves to produce, Filthy Rich will be on the road visiting California, Las Vegas, New Orleans and north of the border to Canada. Rich will be jumping back in the studio with the ever popular Dave London to lay their trademark twists on some new original productions.
Filthy Rich lives for the beats, his pulse thumps at 138 BPM. He loves to rock a party, getting dirty on the decks with his signature style of “sleazy listening”. Whether it’s Funky or Nu Skool breaks, or even UK hard house, Filthy Rich is sure to please the crowd. Hide your daughters
