Live from Liverpool: NEXUS - Aura

Test Match Special

Richie Vegas

Show

Richie Vegas cut his DJing teeth in his late teens – messing about with hip hop and breaks – before plundering his family’s record collections and forging a sound that includes soul, funk, jazz, afrobeat and reggae.

An integral member of the Jiggery Pokery collective running eclectic hip hop nights in Liverpool and beyond – Rich’s distinctive style has found him playing countless gigs over the intervening 15 years: holding residences at some of the finest bars and clubs, and supporting visiting dignitaries such as Lee Scratch Perry, Hot 8 Brass Band, Don Letts, Seun Kuti and Egypt 80.

Test Match Special is an opportunity to showcase a selection of tunes that doesn’t quite fit with live DJ sets, explore less-travelled paths and distill 20 years of musical musings. Expect lost monsters, obscure reworkings, stubborn earworms and wickets galore.
