Gary Richards, also affectionately known as Destructo, has played a crucial role in Dance Music’s growth, but up until this point, not so much as an artist. Gary is best known as the founder of HARD, the national event company responsible for such amazing shows as HARD Halloween, HARD Summer, and even the Dance Music cruise Holy Ship! Gary’s alter ego Destructo has been playing shows for just as long but on a much smaller scale. It wasn’t until the past two years that Destructo has started to find his own Tech House-Deep House voice that’s steadily setting him apart from everyone else. “Higher” is a deep, dark track filled with percussive layers that you’ll feel in both your chest and your feet. Now that Destructo doesn’t have to worry as much about HARD (he sold it to Live Nation last year) it’s clear his artistic career is taking a front seat and I for one am happy to see him get higher baby. Oh, and this video is top notch. Watch, enjoy, and grab the track here.
