What happened to RPO ?
« on: February 05, 2014, 12:13:48 pm »
Used to love his dark tribally releases. Just went to his Beatport and Facebook pages and they haven't been updated in 8 months, both abruptly stopping last June. Anyone heard from him since last summer ?

I loved his tribal tracks too.
I'm afraid he has either stopped djing and producing or even passed away as some DJs made some "tribute mix" for him

I can't get any more info on internet   :-[

That's a really good question... been thinking about what happened to Rick since I've realised that almost on every live set I play his amazing works, hope all is fine  ::)

I played my favourite RPO tune in Brighton on Saturday, called 'Forgotten'.  That vocal always makes my teeth itch... in a good way!

Was going to bump this thread when I saw his latest release recently. Good news indeed.

Not sure if I'm imagining this or not but RPO's production quality has improved quite a bit since before he went on his hiatus. Misty Rising and Arty Grain specifically, are fantastic.
