Criminal Mayhem is well known for the sonic worlds created within his music. A big part of Criminal Mayhem's artistic practice is to take in almost all kinds of music while hardly listening to hardstyle at all, trying to be untouched or influenced by other artists of his field. Next to that, Criminal Mayhem creates energetic performances full of contrast, that take the audience on a journey through his distinct world of music.
As a trained musician, Riccardo is always seeking to portray artistic value within his practice and is eager to contribute to contemporary music and art. He is deeply inspired by the clash of minimalism with chaos and is fascinated by composers like Pärt, Górecki, Chesnokov and Schönberg as well as by artists like Tarkowski.
Having signed with the Dutch record label "Theracords", Criminal Mayhem is now ready to showcase his work and to become an entity within scene.
