Radio 1 recently broadcast a fascinating documentary on the man, which you can now stream through Soundcloud. Listen below to Radio 1’s Heidi talking to Richie about his life to date, ranging all the way from Detroit to New York to Berlin.
Full disclosure – several of the interviews in Detroit were conducted by Zara Wladawsky, a member of the Dummy family. Those interested in Detroit techno should read the Dummy Guide, which she wrote.
