Richie QBall has been part of the North Wales techno scene for many years.
Playing filthy techno and acid, he is a monthly resident on Fnoob Techno Radio with his Forward Thinking Podcast, and weekly resident on OTB Blackpool's Charley’s Beats live streaming every Friday, raising awareness for mental health.
He is also resident with cumbrian free party collective's sound system, The Volume Junkies.
Having featured on Hard Force United, DeF CrOnic Acid Series, Pounding Tekkno as well as various Psychotropic Beats Collective shows.
He has played for the Hyper Freq Soundsystem, Impactic Soundsystem, Psyborg Soundsystem and for North wAliens Soundsystem - part of the North Wales free party scene.
QBall’s style is fast and furious, tight in the mix and definitely worth checking out.
This month, to celebrate the birthday of TGR, we threw a little party... Unfortunately, Rawlinson couldn't make it, so big thanks to Ali Boom for stepping in at short notice.
Ali Boom kicked off the first hour, followed by a vinyl set from TGR, with myself playing the last hour.
All shows are available for download, at no cost.
All feedback welcome!
Peace, Q :)!
With Groove Criminals only a week away, this month i invited Triple B to join myself and TGR to lay down some beats on techno.FM. Feel free to leave a comment or grab yourself a download :)!
Cheers, Richie Q.
This month we have 2 hours of up front up tempo beats. DJ, producer and Fnoob resident Bucko kicks off the first hour with what i can only describe as a banger. The second hour sees myself ramp up the tempo again unleashing some filthy acid for your pleasure.
Due to unfortunate circumstances, my guest was unable to join me, so i thought it a great opportunity to delve into the archives and show case some of my favourite releases on the Cluster, and Cluster 909 label. Featuring releases by K.N, Chris Liberator, D.A.V.E. the Drummer, A.p. & Josh Inc. to name but a few, this was a 3 hour banger of a show...
The good people at Techno.FM agreed to let us broadcast our party for you live on New Years Eve 2017/18, so here is a free download of our 4 hour show for your listening pleasure...
First up was Tecnonaut with a gritty old skool vinyl set, before handing over to FunkT resident DJ ODD-E-C for what can only be described as a frenetic hour of relentless driving bass. You can tell he enjoyed this set... New Years Eve was seen in with a back 2 back vinyl set from FunkT boss TGR & Richie Q.
And yes, it was only my second time with a mic, and yes, i need practice... I Know! ;)
Happy New Year!
Peace and Love, Q x
This months show comes live from Audio Farm 'One Tribe' festival, set deep in rural Cheshire, featuring an hour long guest mix to start the show. Spiral Tribe's very own Crystal Distortion popped in and dropped us a set full of funky beats which had us all rocking, before FunkT resident TGR & Richie Q took over for 90 minutes of vinyl mayhem.
Big respect and massive thanks to Audio Farm for their hospitality, and to Crystal Distortion and Jeff 23 for dropping in.
And last, but never least, a massive shout goes out to the Waliens camp, because without them, this show simply wouldn't of happened
