MTV recently announced the creation of a brand new documentary called HARD10: A Decade of Crashing Sound Barriers with HARD, Holy Ship! and Destructo. The film will cover the life of Gary Richards, the founder and owner of HARD.
Over the past ten years, dance music has seen its rise in popularity sky rocket in the United States. Pioneers such as Gary Richards are the people who continue to push the music forward. Gary has been a vital part of the massive growth of dance music. Richards, also known as the popular DJ Destructo, has been supporting emerging electronic and hip-hop music through events such as HARD SUMMER, HARD Day of the Dead and HOLY SHIP!
