I'm A House Gangster presents The Gangstercast

The GANGSTERCAST DJ mix series comes from the I'M A HOUSE GANGSTER movement. A HOUSE GANGSTER has the undying commitment and passion for House music, they know that this music is not a trend, it's a culture. The mixes all come from the DJs that follow this culture and love and respect the sound - some are established names on the worldwide scene, some are the future stars of tomorrow, and they all represent the raw, underground essence of real House music. Each mix in the GANGSTERCAST series allows the DJ to present their own take on House music and what it means to them. Featured DJs will include DJ Sneak, Tripmastaz, Ramon Tapia, Doc Martin, The Martinez Brothers, Phil Weeks, Hector Moralez, DJ W!LD, Andrea Oliva, Arturo Garces and many others.




Riki Inocente - Gangstercast 09

Born in 1977 in the UK town of Sheffield, Riki Inocente discovered House music after moving to London.  After a few years of religious record buying he was playing the best underground parties in London - at Ministry of Sound, The Arches, The Aquarium, Limelight, The Gas Club and Bagley’s, as well as starting his own BIG parties.  A spell in France led him to Phil Weeks and Robsoul Recordings who signed the track'Soultrain' for a sampler, which in turn led to hook-ups back in London with Hector Moralez, Chris Simmonds and Jordan Peak.  Producing music with Darren Roach of EBM under the moniker Bluntz & Roachez, the duo have signed music to Sneak's Magnetic Recordings, remixed for DJ Sneak Classics and will release an EP for our very own I'm A House Gangster imprint. Riki's Gangstercast saw him selecting tracks that best represent his own sound: "Deep, tribal, underground house with heavy b'lines and solid drums; Music that makes you move, and messes with your mind."  Speaking of the House Gangster movement he says: "We are a family, I've met HG fam all over the world and the link between all of them is their love for good house music.  It doesn't matter if you make, play, or just listen to it, too many people have devoted there lives to this scene through the years to let men in suits and their puppets take the name of our culture and try and cross brand it with a commercial euro pop sound. I ain't goin' to roll like that.  And that's why I do what I do, and why House Gangsters all over the world are doin' it to."  Amen to that!
