Rude a.k.a. Messi a.k.a. Space Slave Trade is Joshua Padarathsingth from Richmond, Virginia. An interesting character who produces both visual and audio art and has been a part of the unique Richmond scene along with friends Narwhalz of Sound and Shams since the mid 2000’s. Releasing a variety of independently produced albums and a few splits (including one with Pop Quiz’s own Search, Click & Destroy for Richmond’s Flish Records in 2007), his work has explored crazy noise music, miami bass, techno, hip hop and even old school electro such as his “Rushing Into Romance” on Pop Quiz 58. Expect much more great things from this blossoming young artist!
