There are few nightclub DJs that have accomplished as much on a global scale as Rich Medina. From his humble beginnings as a young b-boy-turned-DJ in Lakewood, N.J., to his current status manning the decks as one of the most popular DJs in Philadelphia and NYC, Rich has consistently taken music-lovers on a sonic journey through hip-hop, house, Afrobeat, funk, and soul for almost 20 years. As the prototypical traveling DJ, Rich has insider stories from everywhere, tales he'll be sharing with Complex as he journeys.
The past month feels like one giant blurry day to me. I've been on more planes in 2011 than I was on in 2009 and 2010 combined. With all that traveling, I've been blessed to see some really cool and inspirational people and places. In this, my new column at Complex, I'll be sharing some shots, video, and design things that move me for one reason or another. We're kicking things off with a few shots from my travels over the last month, along with my upcoming DJ schedule.
