Our guest this week is Richard Vission.
He’s a DJ, remixer, producer, label owner, club promoter. He’s host of Power Tools — the longest running dance music mix show in the country. He’s worked with megastars from Lady Gaga and Madonna to Major Lazer. And he’s made hits for multiple generations of dance artists — from Crystal Waters and Martha Wash in the 90s to Luciana and his latest discovery, the neo-freestyle duo Wild Style. Did we just coin a new genre? We think so.
It might not surprise you, then, that our interview explores how Richard built a career that spans multiple decades, how he’s weathered the ups and downs and managed to stay engaged and energized.
For one, you’ll learn that he’s in it because he loves the music and not for the trappings of success. You’ll also learn how he’s honed his craft and learned to accept and seek out feedback that helps him get better and better.
