Hailing from Philadelphia a city known for birthing internationally known DJ’s such as Jazzy Jeff, Cash Money, King Brit and Rich Medina, Skeme Richards has put in nearly 30 years of DJing, Producing and indulging within other aspects of Hip Hop culture. Diggin and spinning everything from Funk & Soul, Classics, Hip Hop, Breaks, House and all things funky he continuously strives to separate himself from the pack while maintaining a first class status and satisfying his listeners at the same time. Since becoming a DJ for the world famous Rock Steady Crew, Skeme has had the opportunity to play events, parties and festivals worldwide and has mastered the art of keeping dance floors packed by setting the tone early and reading his crowd properly.

Skeme has shared turntable duties with some of the best in the industry including Maseo (De La Soul), Shortkut (Beat Junkies), Tony Touch, Bobbito, Rob Swift (The X-Ecutioners), DJ Nu-Mark (Jurassic 5), Pete Rock, DJ Premier, DJ Eclipse, J.Rocc (Beat Junkies), Miles (Breakestra), DJ Muro, DJ P-Trix, Greg Belson and other highly respected DJ’s.

These pieces have recently introduced him to the gallery scene which many of his items have been on display for audiences to see.

Recently Skeme has put his efforts into Nostalgia King, an online experience with a focus on Funk, Soul, Jazz, international Soundtracks and independent Hip Hop. In addition to the music itself, NK also takes a serious look at art and film and feature visual artists and photographers from across the globe that continue to successfully carry on a long tradition of creating incredible works by hand, while living in a digital era.
