Judge spent most of his life in London DJing at all night raves and house parties[3] before he met German electronic producer and DJ Santé, and the two collaborated on the song "AWAKE"[4]. The song went onto become an underground hit[5] following its signing to Ultra Records and a high-profile remix from Agoria.[6]

His collaboration with Tube & Berger, "Disarray" spent 6 weeks in the Deep House Top 10[7] and led Magnetic Magazine to describe him as: "Dance music's next star vocalist".[8]

His 2015 collaboration with Robin Schulz on the track "Show Me Love" received notable exposure and critical acclaim from Resident Advisor[9] as well as clocking over 23 million views on YouTube.[10] The single "Show Me Love" had chart success in Europe, reaching No. 1[11] in Germany and Poland, No. 2 in Austria and No. 4 in Switzerland. In 2016, Judge went on to release "Stain My Soul" on Subjekt Recordings in May 2016.[12]

Richard was a live act at the Swiss Music Awards[13], the Czech Blog awards and toured Arenas all over Europe with Robin Schulz, had a residency at Heart Club Munich, Pacha Poznan and played his first SE Asia tour in 2018.

In 2019 Richard teamed up with Brazilian Producer DJ Vinne where they released "Won't Let You Down", A cover of 80's U.K. pop group Ph.D.'s 'I Won't Let You Down ', VINNE & Richard Judge rework the track into a thrilling Dance banger with a hair-raising, overpoweringly heavy drop released under Enchanted Recordings.
