Shane Armijo – better known as Richter, is an emerging drum and bass producer and DJ from Los Angeles, California. Representing Insomniac and Bassrush, the largest bass music festival/club promoters in America, Shane has toured internationally playing shows like Hospitality In The Park, the infamous Get Hype Boat Party, and Fabric. His eccentric productions have garnered international support from high-profile artists such as Andy C, Pendulum, and DJ Craze.
With a slew of upcoming releases United By Bass wanted to see what is inspiring the young phenom these days so we reached out and Richter was kind enough to give us a look at which 5 tunes are currently at the top of his playlist. His list doesn’t disappoint and we want to thank Shane for taking time to sit down with us. Check out his list today and make sure to give the man a follow.
Thereʼs something truly special about an old school sounding tune with a brand new modernly-engineered mix down style. Love this one because it brings me back to the 2008-2011 sound that really ignited a huge rise in the movement itself.
High Contrast can truly do no wrong. Heʼs obviously one of the greatest to ever do it, and by remixing this he made me fall in love with a song that I never even knew I liked! This one is gonna be in my playlists for home listening and the club for a long time.
Would be wrong if I didnʼt plug something new of mine 😉
This one has been supported by Pendulum, The Prototypes, Rene LaVice and many more – and it just came out a week or so ago! Hope you enjoy!
This one is suuuuuuper special because itʼs (as far as I know,) never been done before like this. His tempo automation and beautifully-transitioned production style is 5 minutes of pure rollercoaster. Turno has been on a serious upwards rise!
Flite is another name thatʼs been on an upwards trajectory in my books for a good while now. He crushed this remix for an already amazing tune! What a banger.
