Richard Nordin was an army brat originally from Pittsburgh, who eventually found himself going to school in Worcester, MA. The mundane, seemingly nonexistent, nightlife scene in Worcester motivated him to finish school as quickly as possible, which would allow him to relocate to Boston, where the nightlife scene was thriving, full of life, creativity, and diversity.
He got his start DJing at the underground venue Red Tail in Manchester, NH. After attending Mmmmaven’s Make It New events, it sparked his interest in producing music. He loved the focus on underground music at Make It New, which led him to take music production classes at Mmmmaven. He not only took Production 101 and 102, but he took them twice.
“The producers I studied with were really gifted and intelligent and I could come in looking at any particular genre and the teachers would bend to whatever genre I wanted to learn production skills in.”
Nordin has gone on to play at Burning Man and notes Kink and House of Prayers as a couple of his musical influences. His long term goal is to utilize his knowledge and creativity to create music for the underground music scene. He started Houseboi, an event held the first Wednesday every month, which he also manages. It features performances that include singing, burlesque, drag, and is queer friendly. The characters are colorful, and the show is welcoming to all humans and their friends.
His advice for anyone interested in learning how to DJ or produce: put in the time, take plenty of notes, do your homework, and treat it like a second job.
