For his first release of 2021, DESTRUCTO (aka Gary Richards) has teamed with TroyBoi on their debut collaborative single “You’re The One For Me,” out today, June 11 via ALL MY FRIENDS.
The ’80s roller disco-inspired track takes an old school vibe to new production heights by TroyBoi and DESTRUCTO, merging two eras of sonic greatness together. It is accompanied by a video directed by artist Grizz Lee who has shot fashion images and videos for the likes of Nicki Minaj, Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian and more. For the video, he has the viewer following a group of models as they wake up in a loft for a small party / photoshoot / skate session with a glamourous throwback feel.

T-R-O-Y-B-O-I. These letters are chanted by the masses at his shows, but the question is who is the artist incorporating stunning visuals, live instruments, talented dancers and those jaw dropping aerialists? Troy Henry, the elusive producer who has classified himself as a music manipulation specialist got his start making his beats standing up in his London studio apartment kitchen with his Mac Book and a midi keyboard. Today, the TroyBoi Experience is indeed a musical journey of hard-hitting beats, lights, visuals, and the unexpected. While his musical style can be broadly classified as trap, it’s extraordinarily unique, versatile, and fuses various textures from multiple genres. He is of Nigerian, Indian, Chinese, and Portuguese descent, and credits this (along with growing up in London, with its own blend of cultures and genres) for the diversity that is reflected in his music. Beyond his career releases which include his debut album Left Is Right (2017) and series of V!BEZ EPs in 2018 and 19, his productions have caught the ear of major music stars. His 2018 remix of Billie Eilish’s “MyBoi-TroyBoi Remix” has garnered almost 79 million Spotify streams and in 2019, Rihanna featured two of his songs “Do You?” and “Malokara” at her SavagexFenty show, seen globally via Amazon Prime during New York Fashion Week. TroyBoi’s sound has evolved from when he began his musical journey to now headlining at some of the world’s largest festival stages such as Coachella, Lollapalooza (Chicago & Paris), Life Is Beautiful, HARD, EDC China and Electric Zoo just to name a few as well as holding down residencies at Drai’s Beachclub in Las Vegas and Ushuaia in Ibiza, Spain. TroyBoy’s latest is V!BEZ Vol 4 is out now. Look for a new artist project to follow later this year.
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. Look for much more new music from DESTRUCTO to come in 2021.
