BRAND NEW UK COMPILATION

Delivered by

I say this on what's probably an

annoyingly regular basis:

One of the greatest strengths of the
UK Gospel music scene is its ability
to offer up as part of its mainstream
music genres that in many other
markets will either be virtually
nonexistent, or - at best - on its
remote fringes.

Case in point: House Music.

Gospel Standards

While House is no doubt still the primary preserve of the club scene, House remixes of new and classic Gospel standards spill out of the club circuit on to our mainstream social feeds, blogs and radio - a tradition dating back at least a couple of decades, if not more.

The uplifiting message of the Gospel was perfect inspiration for clubbers, and it was only a matter of time before some of the more adventurous DJs and producers started fusing both elements.

Maverick DJ

Back when church and club music had only just started to merge (much to the chagrin of many of the faithful), the spearhead of this transition was the maverick DJ.

One of those foolhardy souls was Richard White.

Vinyl Preacher

Richard started out as a DJ in London’s first Christian Clubs in early ‘90s under the name of the 'Vinyl Precher', going on to work as a Studio assistant on Choice FM (now Capital Xtra) Gospel show from 1993-1997.

On leaving radio he went on to start a music management company in 1997, managing vocalists for Dance music releases and working with various independent and major labels and a number of different producers.

Each 2 Their Own

2001 saw the creation of production outfit Each 2 Their Own with the release of the Soulful House-flavoured The Promise EP following in 2003.

A long music hiatus followed while Richard worked on TV Projects, but Each 2 Their Own continued, releasing several bootleg remixes of familiar Gospel artists on Social media (from Four Kornerz to Mary Mary to Heather Headley to Kirk Franklin).

After receiving a great club and radio response and tens of thousand hits with no real promotion, the journey had to continue.

Stomp Music Returns

Richard is back, and now signed as an artist to Stomp Music (launching mid 2015).

Stomp has put the proveribal pedal back to the metal: January and February 2015 saw Each 2 Their Own release two DJ-only promo tracks as tasters for forthcoming material: Andrae Crouch's 'Got Me Some Angels' and Yolanda Adams' 'Be Blessed', both receiving DJ, Club and radio support in the UK, US and across Europe.


Radio Show

Richard as Each 2 Their Own has just started a new weekly radio show on Saturday nights on Kent Christian Radio: EACH 2 THEIR OWN IN SESSION, as well as being regular ‘Mini-mix’ contributors to UCBExtra as part of the BEATS show.
