Richard West aka Mr.C was born in London in the late 60′s. He started MCing in the London clubs aged only 16 and soon earned a reputation as a fast talking vivacious rapper working with LWR radio’s Ron Tom, Jasper the Vinyl Junkie & Jazzy M. Mr.C then hooked up with Colin Faver and Evil Eddie Richards to became resident rapper at Camden Palace going on to MC for Colin Faver on the then illegal Kiss FM.
Mr.C went into the studio to record his 1st house track with Eddie Richards as Myster-E in 1987. This inspired Mr.C to become a DJ to learn more about his beloved house and techno music so in late ’87 Richard took to the decks.
Mr.C has since organized, promoted and been resident DJ at: Fantasy (’88), Base (Dungeons ’89), Release (’91), Harmony (’92), Drop (’93), Cyclone (’94), Vapourspace (’94 and ’95), Flavour (The End ’95 and ’96), Subterrain (The End (’95 – 2002) and Superfreq (The End / Junk Club / World-wide 2002 – present). In December 1995 Mr.C opened The End Club in London with Partner Layo Paskin which celebrated it’s 13th anniversary in December 2008.
Sadly The End closed it’s doors for good on January 24th 2009. 1 Chapter closes and another begins.
Mr.C is founder and owner of Plink Plonk Records, co-founder of End Recordings and cofounder and owner of Superfreq Records. Mr.C has recorded under the names, Myster-E, Nu Jacks, Bass Bureau, The Shamen, Mantrac, Somnambulist, Animus Amour, Killer Loop, Mr.C & Tom Parris, and Mr.C & 16B. He’s currently recording solo as Mr.C or as the Sycophant Slags with his production partner Adultnapper with releases on Sexonwax, End Rec, Hallucination Ltd, Superfreq, Bombis & Poker Flat Records and has EP’s due later in the year under both monikers.
Mr.C also runs and promotes Superfreq events, which is now in its 7th year and ran monthly at Mr.C’s club, The End until it closed down in January 2009. Superfreq now has monthly residencies at the brand new Cable Club in London starting June 13th 2009 & weekly at BoHo, Ibiza from June 11 2008. Superfreq is also bi-monthly at Junk Club in Southampton & in Calais, North France.
