If you’re a deep house head, the name of Ricardo Rey Miranda will probably ring familiar to your ears. With choice records for some of the finest underground labels such as Louie Vega’s Vega Records, Rush Hour’s sub-label Hour House Is Your Rush, as well as Italian imprints Neroli and Bosconi, the CV of the Chicago-based artist inspires nothing but awe and respect.
As his latest effort for Volcov’s ever-reliable Neroli imprint just hit the streets, we’re no short of proud to present a five minute audio-visual portrait shot and edited by the man himself. The video offers a bit of insight on Ricardo’s roots as a musician whilst mostly focusing on his day-to-day activities, following him in the streets and key places of his hometown of Chicago.
Having DJed and collected records for over 30 years in all, Ricardo takes us to some of the Chi-Town’s bastions for house music where he uses to spend his days and nights: digging records at Gramaphone Records, recording at Gorilla Oven Studios, as images caught in the elevated railroad and at skateboard wheels level reveal fragmentary views of the Windy City’s multi-hued facets. An inspirational journey indeed.
