Destructo’s New EP Blends Hip-Hop with House

Destructo aka Gary Richards is not only one of the busiest figures in EDM, but one of the most forward-thinking. Between founding Los Angeles’ popular HARD festival series to producing his own music, Richards’ approach to curating talent and blending styles has resonated worldwide.
As the release of his West Coast EP nears, Complex caught up with the Los Angeles native at the video shoot for his Problem-assisted track, “Dare You 2 Move.”
Richards discussed the groundbreaking project, which blends some of California’s most influential rappers with house beats, how producing and DJing makes him a better promoter, and the non-stop hustle of today’s scene.
West Coast is set to drop November 2 on Insomniac Records and feature YG, Ty Dolla $ign, Problem, Kurupt, Too $hort and Warren G.
