Podcast News – OPERATOR: MindTrip Podcast // 6th July 2020
6th July 2020
We kick off July with a new episode on the MindTrip podcast coming straight from UK by the DJ, producer and label owner Operator (aka Rich Jones). He released music for over a decade on labels like Bas Mooy’s Audio Assult, Blue Hour, Soma, CLR, Kanzleramt as well as on his own imprint Gnosis Records, established in 2012. Operator was born with the intention to focus on deeper, mind bending yet still tough techno sounds. With his exclusive mix he takes us back through time and space with a blend of Detroit Techno, hard grooves and futuristic dystopian textures. Rich has also prepared his debut EP on MindTrip sometime during the second half of this year.
Enjoy Operator’s 2-hour session.
This is MindTrip!
