Rich Main


Rich Main is a London based DJ who has played at venues such as Pacha Ibiza all the way to small intimate locations like Soho Farmhouse. Also known as Kalyde, he is a house and techno producer/DJ who has risen through the ranks at a remarkable pace, quickly making a mark on the scene with his engaging mixes and instantly recognisable sonic direction. Despite being a relative newcomer to the scene, Rich signed his first deal in 2015. Since then he had a stream of successful releases on some of electronic music’s most sought after imprints;  including MadTech,  Elrow,  AVOTRE and Lost. He has  also  remixed industry  heavyweights like Sidney  Charles,  Fatboy  Slim and Flashmob, all  whilst garnering unanimous praise for his distinctive style and productions skills. Outside ofthe  studio, Kalyde has had  widespread  success  with  a  succession of  mixes on benchmark radio stations Rinse FM and BBC Radio 1, the latter providing continued radio  airtime  for  his  latest  releases,  including  more  than  a few  spins  and  ongoing support from taste maker Annie Mac & Pete Tong.

After being tipped as one to watch in early 2016 by BBC Radio 1 presenter Monki, Rich’s international touring schedule has gone from strength to strength with him now  becoming  a  regular  fixture at  some of  the  world’s  clubbing  hotspots, including playing the main room at infamous London institution; Fabric. He was also chosen to spearhead  the  15th  anniversary of Fatboy  Slim's  album 'Halfway  Between  The Gutter  And  The  Stars’: to  celebrate  the re-release, Kalyde  produced  the  official remix of ‘Star 69’, released on Skint in June 2015.

Looking  forward to 2017,  Kalyde  continues to  reach new  heights  with an  ever growing  repertoire of  stand  out  productions,  including  a  forthcoming  Digital  & Vinyl release on  German  Label  BLANK  which is  already  getting  support  from  Techno legend KiNK.
