Tonight sees PoD bring you Richy Ahmed at Button Factory. Ahmed is firmly established as one of the top DJs at the forefront of British house music at the moment, consistently re-defining the scene, taking cues from disco, techno, funk, electro and hip-hop.
He has played a major part in the renaissance of British House in recent years one that has given rise to a whole new breed of DJs and producers.
Hailing from South Shields in the north of England, Richy continues to make regular appearances at events across the UK as well as touring internationally.
He spent many years cutting his teeth at the UK’s most exciting venues for underground dance music, including Rainbow Venues in Birmingham, The Warehouse Project in Manchester, Glasgow’s Sub Club as well as London’s most respected clubbing institution’s XOYO and Fabric.
Richy then branched out internationally playing major events, from BPM in Mexico to the exclusive Blue Marlin venue in Dubai to Panorama Bar in Berlin, cementing his rise as a globally acclaimed DJ, and as a result has been polled in Resident Advisor’s Top 100 DJs for the last two years running.
In 2013 he released his debut EP ‘The Drums’ on Jamie Jones and Lee Foss’ Hot Creations label. The lead track went on to be crowned as Pete Tong’s ‘Essential New Tune’. He followed this up in 2014 and signed his ‘Sneaky Acid’ EP to the label for their 50th release. As a key member of the Hot Creations family, Richy is an A&R for the label and has been the main resident and one of the curators for the line ups for Paradise at DC-10 over the last three years.
Last year also saw Richy broadcast on the legendary BBC Radio 1 Essential mix with his own unique take on the iconic series – armed with a completely individual sound that fuses the energy of house and disco with infectious funk-inspired grooves. You can catch him tonight at Button Factory with RTE Pulse enigma Dan Stritch and Aaron Nolan.
Each week resident Kaily (just back from his Scottish tour) brings you an array of guests with the musical menu being Disco and House and everything in between.Admission is only €6 and this week Cameron Steele and Ian Dowdall join Dan and Kaily.
