Richard Storm, a Texas native, loved EDM music pretty close to the start of the conception of the EDM movement in Texas when he first heard Microchip League - New York, New York at a mall in 1987. After joining the Air Force, Richard moved away from Texas to Germany, in 1993, and started learning how to DJ while living in Germany. At first, he DJed only using CDs with CD turntables until 1995 when he first bought vinyl. He has been a vinyl freak ever since. He djed at small parties until his skills were honed enough to DJ in the clubs and the bigger parties throughout Germany.
He eventually left Germany in 2001 and became actively involved with Surreal Entertainment in Arizona (Tucson & Phoenix) and High Caliber Productions in TexasMexico (El PasoJuárez). This involvement included DJing and helping with the bookings of out of state DJs and local DJs within the area. He also formed Unified Music International and booked DJs for his parties in Arizona and Colorado.
He left Arizona in 2006 to go back to Germany and hosted weekly live mix shows for FM radio Example FM from Warrington (UK). He was voted Example FM’s trance DJ of the year by the Example FM listeners in Warrington. He moved back to Arizona from Germany and DJed in various cities in Arizona, Texas, and Georgia. He is now back to Texas and is now working really hard in school.
