Bass-house producer & DJ DESTRUCTO comes to Kings Hall at Avant Gardner on his ‘Twisted Tour’ in Brooklyn this Saturday, February 15.
DESTRUCTO’s ‘Twisted Tour’ is named for his latest single “Twisted.” The track samples Mobb Deep’s “Got It Twisted” from their 2004 album Amerikaz Nightmare. Produced by The Alchemist, the song samples the 1980s Thomas Dolby hit “She Blinded Me with Science” which you can still hear elements of in this DESTRUCTO production.

Since 2011, DESTRUCTO (Gary Richards) has dominated the dance floor on his own terms. He went from the acclaimed Technology EP (2012) and Higher EP (2013) to high profile remixes for artists as diverse as Depeche Mode, Giorgio Moroder, Major Lazer, Rob Zombie, Digitalism and more. 2014 saw the precision-guided producer in the realm of g-house (where rap melds with house music) introduce his singular solo style with the West Coast EP, boasting collaborations with YG, Ty Dolla $ign, Problem, Too $hort, Warren G and Kurupt. Along the way, he’s touched down for shows everywhere from Australia and Fiji to Tokyo and Ibiza in addition to crisscrossing the country on alongside the likes of D.R.A.M., E-40, iLoveMakonnen, Anna Lunoe, Wax Motif, REZZ, Felix Da Housecat and more. Released in early 2017, the RENEGADE EP featured collaborations with E-40 and Too $hort, Ty Dolla $ign & iLoveMakonnen, Pusha T & Starrah, Problem and Freddie Gibbs. Latest releases “F*cking ShIt Up” featuring Busta Rhymes, “Boom” featuring Problem, “Bassface” (with remixes by DJ Koos, Golf Clap and Dillon Nathaniel), “Loaded” featuring Yo Gotti (with new remixes by Walker & Royce and SQWAD) and “Shots To the Dome” with Gerry Gonza are out now, with Chris Lake x DESTRUCTO’s “Y.O.D.O.” out on Lake’s Black Book label.
