In 1995, age 12, he started to collect many kind of music such as dance, old school, classical music and also was spended every bucks of his pocket money on music cassette. He used to spend hours after school in his bedroom, listening to what he had bought, many nights without going to bed or till early morning with his cassette player on his hand. Cassette player had become his best friend along the period.
As the 90’s became the 00’s he followed the musical trend from funk to dance, to hip-hop. In year 2002, he moved to China, along with so many others, he discovered the pure thrill of acid house and techno. Disco was the first music that captivated him but Richavo began DJ’ing and choosed to play hard house music and hip-hop in the biggest dance club. Hard house is China’s favorite form of music. After he stopped DJ’ing and moved back hometown to work with his parents to run his family business for 5 years.
