Born in Banbury, Oxfordshire, England, on June 4th 1970 Hawtin emigrated with his family when he was nine to Windsor, Ontario, where his dad Mick still works as a robot technician in the General Motors car factory (his mother, Brenda, is in real estate). Richie cheekily borrowed his dad’s persona for his house alias Robotman. His brother Matthew, who shares the Windsor fire station studio complex with Richie, is a visual artist. By 15 Richie was creeping out of the house to cross the border and go clubbing in Detroit. By 17 he was DJing at The Shelter, a dark basement club where he mixed House and Techno with Industrial music by Nitzer Ebb and Front 242. He had his own show on Detroit’s – inspired by a late ‘80s Detroit radio DJ called The Wizard, now better known as Jeff Mills.

The first acid house records were produced in Chicago , Illinois . Phuture , a group founded by Nathan " DJ Pierre " Jones, Earl "Spanky" Smith Jr., and Herbert "Herb J" Jackson, is credited with having been the first to use the TB-303 in the house-music context (the instrument appeared as early as 1983 in disco via Alexander Robotnick ). [22] The group's 12-minute " Acid Tracks " was recorded to tape and was played by DJ Ron Hardy at the Music Box, where Hardy was resident DJ. Hardy once played it four times over the course of an evening until the crowd responded favorably. [8] Chicago's house music scene suffered a crackdown on parties and events by the police. Sales of house records dwindled and, by 1988, the genre was selling less than a tenth as many records as at the height of the style's popularity. [23] However, house and especially acid house was beginning to experience a surge in popularity in Britain. [24]

Belgium-based but beaming the love of house all over the world with a blend of funky rhythms, groovy sax and smooth vocals: Dj Licious knows good vibes come from nothing but house music. After founding the celebrated clubbing concept SHOMI in Antwerp, his deejay career directed him to the Belgian “Defected in the House” parties, proudly pushing house music on a national level. By mixing fresh tunes in his own radio show on Radio FG, spinning his favorite tracks at clubs and festivals worldwide (Tomorrowland, Privilege Ibiza, Laundry Day, Summerfestival, Versuz, La Rocca, WMC Miami, Pacha World Tour, and many more), Dj Licious does what he loves most: let the music do the talking.
