Destructo is just on a different wavelength than us mere mortals. He helms one of the largest event production forces in the country, serves as one of dance music’s most trusted A&R forces, holds down a SiriusXM residency, and lives out the dream of being a world-famous touring DJ all at once. It seems like every week Gary Richards has something exciting to offer — he can link up with Busta Rhymes for a proper hip-hop cut, and then follow up with a club-primed house piece just days later without missing a beat. Presently, Destructo is gracing us with a new take on Oliver and Sam Sparro’s “Last Forever,” dropping off a solid dose of disco with a slick bit of contemporary house influence.
Putting his chameleonic studio capabilities to work, the “Catching Plays” producer takes on Oliver’s “Last Forever” keeping the original tune’s plucking, pronounced bass line as the backbone, but offering a more subdued, house-leaning spin on his take. The remix comes hot off the announcement of LA’s new AMFAMFAMF summer event, and judging by Richards’ momentum both in and out of the studio, 2018 is bound to be a banner year for Destructo.
