About Richard the Third

As one half of local dubstep warriors, Biscope, producer and performer for Spoek Mathambo and Mshini Wam and all round eclectic mad cap music machine, Richard the Third walks the musical tightrope like a true circus freak.

Being a central agent in South Africa’s electronic music scene, Richard the Third is a regular DJ at the countries biggest left-of-centre music clubs such as the Assembly, Fiction, the Woods and Alexander Theatre.

His sets are a roller-coaster ride of the best of modern bass music: grinding electro, rinsing dubstep and everything in between.

Production wise he has remixed everyone from 340ml to Sibot, puts out his own music on local labels such as African Dope and On A Break Records and has produced the bulk of the music for the upcoming Spoek Mathambo and Mshini Wam album released on internationally acclaimed label BBE.

In his spare time he stays up till four in the morning, practicing staying up till four in the morning rinsing the party out just for you.
