When Richard Judge’s band headed for one farewell European tour, things got
a little out of hand... Following the final rather messy night in Barcelona,
instead of heading home to ponder his career, Richard made his way to the
island of Ibiza.
On the first afternoon, the indie boy found himself in the middle of a crowd of
people in the old part of Ibiza town and before he knew it, he was raving out to
Loco Dice at Ushuaia and thinking, ‘I want to be part of this, I want to be
making this kind of music.’
Back home in London he immersed himself in the club scene. All night raves
were followed by spinning records at home. Judge made a name for himself
with his after hour sets in whoever’s house the crowd of party goers gathered
and who still didn’t want the night to end.
It was after one such early morning session, heading home to East London on
the N8 night bus, the theme to the song AWAKE came to him. Always wanting
to get hold of the spirit of these late nights or early mornings, he managed to
capture it after a friend introduced him to German electronic producer & DJ
Santé when the two collaborated on AWAKE. The song went onto become an
underground hit following it's signing to Ultra Records and a high profile remix
from Agoria……the indie-turned-electronic artist was well and truly born.
His collaboration with Tube & Berger, Disarray spent 6 weeks in the Deep
House Top 10 and led Magnetic Magazine to describe him as: "Dance music's
next star vocalist." And before you knew it, his upcoming collaboration with
Robin Schulz "Show Me Love” catapults the “indie-via-electronic undergroundvoice”
on to a much bigger stage… No.1 in the German airplay and no2 in the
sales charts in the spring of 2016, with Top10 and Top20 chart entries across
continental Europe…. bodes well for a promising future for the young singer!
Continuing on the path with further collaborations with the likes of Agoria,
Eagles & Butterflies, Nic Fanciulli, Noir, Spada and more with Tube & Berger
forthcoming, the focus is fully on making most of Richard Judge’s new found
limelight in the clubs.
"At the moment, people know the voice but not the artist behind it,” Richard
Judge says, "electronic music and clubs have dominated my life in the last 4
years, I’m a natural performer, and being a DJ who is also singing will push
some boundaries and will allow me to combine all aspects of me. Watch
The release of Richard's deephouse smash “YOUTH” in October on Sony
Germany completes the journey of the pop singer who became club DJ, then
made his mark as a hugely successful featuring artist and finally drops a
dance hit in his own right, certain to set the airwaves alight and reach the
masses already familiar with the unique sound of his voice.
