Sad news has just reached that our good friend Richard Vale (A.K.A. DJ Spex) has passed away. For those of you that know him, will know him as a quality & informed DJ, a nifty producer & of course Spex was a seriously good guy.
Personally, I will always be grateful for meeting Richard in person & always be thankful to him for keeping me in the game. If is wasn’t for the enthusiasm he gave to my shows & label, you would not be listening to the DCA show on UK Bass Radio. He pushed me to raise my game again last year, get in touch with & join UK Bass Radio to broadcast again.
You will never be forgotten my friend.
I will play a tribute show for Spex on 2nd Jul 2006. [Archive coming soon]
Update 1: Say what you want about Facebook, but it seems one of the steadiest places for tribute pages these days. This is a closed group, but if you want in, get in touch.
Update 2: Satin Storm has also posted up a Cutters Choice interview by Spex here.
Update 3: Check out the Spex Spotlight show on MixCloud. Yes, he produced enough tunes for a while show dedication to his tunes.
