Who is Ritchie Brains? According to Exit Music label boss and music producer dBridge, Richie Brains is a collaboration between label artists Alix Perez, Chimpo, Fixate, Fracture, Om Unit, Sam Binga and Stray.
“The idea of getting these guys together came about around 2 years ago. I’d been (and have been) releasing great music from all of them, and most have collaborated with each other individually in some form or another, but I felt that there was a common thread in their sounds that would work great as a whole. So I sent them all an email suggesting they got together.”
The resulting work is a hodgepodge of dance, drum n bass, funk, footwork, jungle, and techno vibes. The track “Buss It” is one of the standout tracks, a throwback back to early 90s Prodigy.
As for the band name, “Richie Brains just sounded like the name of a great electronic punk character to us,” said dBridge.
