Rick Wilhite - Drum Patterns & Memories (KDJ)
Rick "The Godson" Wilhite's position within the ranking of his Detroit peers and amongst the city's respected house music heritage is impressive. Learning the trade from scratch, Wilhite went through the experience of being a record buyer as well as a record dealer with his own store (Vibes - New and Rare Music), worked on the other side of the fence as a producer and editor for labels like KDJ, Stilove4music and as part of the infamous Three Chairs collective (Kenny Dixon Jr., Theo Parrish and Malik Pittman being the other members). Rick has also worked alongside peers and pioneers Derrick May and Juan Atkins, recorded as DOC, Tech-12, Working Mixx or The Godson and has always been a mover and shaker behind the scenes. But on top of all that, he is notorious for being a DJ. One that still carries and loves vinyl, one that knows past, present and doesn't shy away from the future and most of all a DJ that knows what a party could and should be.
