Richard's journey into psych began as a teenager when he worked for the legendary UK psych label Bam Caruso, who released dozens of psychedelic and freakbeat compilations alongside artist albums from the Seeds, the Left Banke, the Walker Brothers, John's Children, July and many more. "It was like attending psychedelic university," says Richard. He also co-edited Strange Things are Happening, a pop art magazine that pre-dated the likes of Mojo and other reissue magazines.
In partnership with Erol Alkan as Beyond The Wizard's Sleeve, Richard has firmly cemented his position in the Psyche-scape. Their series of re-edit 12" mini albums were not only instantly snapped up in stores but also led to a series of high profile remixes for artists such as Chemical Brothers, Goldfrapp, Franz Ferdinand and more.
The "You Are The One EP" opens up with lead track "You Are The One" a is a slow-jam cosmic bliss out. "Mushroom Family" adds a touch of 70's sheen and evokes a trip in a field of joy with the sun shining down. Things round off with 'More Cowbell' which takes things in a more dance-floor, groove-driven direction which leaves us all wondering which trip Richard is taking us on for the rest of the album.
Weaving a Psychedelic, Balearic and occasional Krautrock path, prepare for the album in 2010.
