About the event

DJ Pat Richmond

My love for music, you could say, started from the cradle. I grew up on the sounds of my parents' radio constantly filling the backdrop of my childhood. Influenced by the diverse tastes of my father, I found myself enjoying the entire spectrum of music- Jazz, Blues, Soul, Reggae, House, and Rock n Roll. 

As I reached my teenage years, I began to develop a real passion for soul and reggae. Alongside my brother-in-law and two cousins, at the tender age of sixteen, we achieved our dream of setting up our very own sound system. From there, we took our music to the streets and played to any and every crowd, picking up our records from Dalston, Hackney, and Body Music in Seven Sisters (and of course 'borrowing' one or two from my dad hoping he wouldn't realise.

In 1989, my musical journey took another twist when I left the rave scene and joined my local church. Here, I became the sound engineer and praise and worship leader and was able to further refine my tastes in soul and soulful gospel house music.

After a 20-year hiatus from the raving scene, my DJ life was born again in 2016 when I was invited to play at the Walthamstow Garden Party fundraiser and after party The Wildcard Brewery. It was then that Raising the Funking Bar promotions was created by my good friend Michael Lomotey and myself. Since then, I've gone on to run several DJ lead events and residencies alongside a wide array of talented guests DJs throughout Waltham Forest and London the latest being the Sunday vinyl session for all those vinyl junkies.

As a DJ I try to take all my different experiences and wonderful memories into my DJ sets and count it a privilege to share my most loved tunes and playing music that people love to dance to. With the combination of uplifting Soulful, Funky & Gospel House as well as Disco, Rare Groove, Funk, Reggae & Soul
