Destructo (Gary Richards) began DJing and producing undergrounds in the early 90s in Los Angeles, most notably creating RaveAmerica at Knotts Berry Farm. Rick Rubin subsequently handpicked Gary for A&R in electronic music at Def American Recordings, launching a noteworthy career with such acts as Lords of Acid, Messiah, David Holmes, Basement Jaxx, Dub Pistols, God Lives Underwater and founding 1500 Records and Nitrus Records. After carrying his success to the metal world with No Name Mgmt, Destructo returned to his roots in 2007 by creating HARD. HARD events such as the HARD Haunted Mansion have become synonymous with cutting edge electronic music and unforgettable experiences, where the talent rosters reflect Destructo's own impeccable DJ sets.
Tittsworth is excited to announce the launch of his new party, Tittsworth & Friends, which will be based in his hometown, Washington, D.C. The regular residency will focus on forward thinking and eclectic electronic music played by himself and select guests at U Street Music Hall. In addition, Tittsworth will also curate a new night this fall in Hong Kong with a residency and rotating guests that will highlight some of LA's best DJs. Aside from trotting the globe, Tittsworth has upcoming releases with Tok and Doorly and has recently played along side Green Velvet, Jimmy Edgar, Catz n Dogz, Harvard Bass, and Jacques Greene.
