London based DJ and Hot Creations A&R, Richy Ahmed will follow up Kode9's Rinse:22 with the 23rd edition of the mix series – a seminal moment as the series begins to move away from purely hosting Rinse FM regulars to feature a wider array of DJs and producers . Described by the man himself as a “snapshot of what my club sets are like”, the mix glides through a selection of 19 tracks with a pumping piano house track from Outboxx kicking off proceedings before pulling together tracks from Danny Tenaglia, Mark Jenkyns, Subb-an, Kim Ann Foxman, Hot Natured and more, including some of his own work.
"The thing I look for in every track, that's universal in every type of music that I play—I look for the groove," Richy says. "I like it jacking, I like energy. It's all just got to have that thing in it that makes my head nod and my hips swing, you know? It's the drums that get me. I love the way that drums fit with the bass, whether it's a tiny ripple of sub-bass or a big kick in a techno track, or live disco drums, it doesn't matter—it's the way they sit together and talk to each other."
