Genre: Trance

Richard Taylor’s genres include Trance, Progressive, and Dirty House. Support includes ETN, 2HP, en-trance, and paradigmunited.

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Richard Taylor found music early in life, playing piano, violin, and guitar, all before reaching the age of 16. His musical upbringing hit full stride when his dance calling came in the summer of 2000. One of his best friends brought him to his first trance party, and ever since, Richard has never turned back.

Richard’s DJ style is very emotional; a combination of hard techno and uplifting, melodic trance. Influences such as Mauro Picotto, Marco V, M.I.K.E. and Ferry Corsten have changed Richard’s direction in music, and now Richard finds himself immersed in electronic music. With over a year of playing in clubs, Richard has shown the energy and passion easily identifiable with a true music purist.

Having been dubbed as one of Toronto’s “Best Kept Secrets”, Richard has been turning heads and gaining new fans quickly with his online demo and numerous Toronto nightclub appearances. His first, in the VIP Room at System Soundbar for the November ‘03 installment of Max Graham’s “Shine”, followed by the 2003 Christmas TOTA People’s Choice party, and most notably the 1NT3RF3R3NC3 1 yr when he played alongside dj ESO in the main room.

2004 has seen the rise of this talented young man. His partnership with Peter G (aka dj ESO) has seen their promotion company, enTRANCE bear fruit, in the form of a short but sweet weekly at Pulse, along with others, and a Canadian premiere of Filo & Peri in Toronto. Together, they have been busy creating their own productions; have also playing some of them at recent appearances. Stay tuned for 2005, as enTRANCE goes coast to coast.
