The D Ramirez name has been synonymous with cutting edge, forward thinking sound since the release of ‘that’ genre defining remix of Yeah Yeah in 2006, but it’s the rich tapestry of production that followed that continues to entice tidal waves across the industry. Including groundbreaking releases on Toolroom, such as 2009’s underground anthem Downpipe with Underworld & Mark Knight, and the inimitable Cevin Fisher collaboration ‘Restless’ (Great Stuff) in 2012 that was a catalyst for the explosion of the recent ‘G-House’ scene.
An undeniable insight garnered through rocking dancefloors in every continent has clearly given him the edge when it comes to production. Whether its securing high profile residencies in some the worlds’ best clubs from Space & Cream Ibiza, Womb in Tokyo and Avalon in LA; or smashing sets at iconic festivals Glastonbury, Global Gathering and Australia Day in Sydney, D Ramirez is a definitive crowd puller across the globe.
As well as commercial success with charting hits and even a Top Of The Pops appearance, D. Ramirez has received a number of illustrious awards throughout his career. Collecting accolades from the likes of DJ Magazine (best producer and best remix), iDJ (player of the year) and even an Ivor Novello nomination for his remix of Bodyrox 'Yeah Yeah'. His label Slave Recordings launched in 2004 exported a series of gems including a best-selling remix album of D Ramirez originals featuring the likes of Darren Emerson and Cagedbaby, establishing D Ramirez early on among the dance music elite.
Harnessing some seriously refined technical skills built from over 20 years making music, combined with a constant thirst for new tricks and the latest kit; D Ramirez’s music production tutorials have become nothing short of a phenomenon racking up over 15 million hits worldwide. Inspiring a generation to take to their keys, most recently his SubBass DJ Masterclass ‘Making House in Logic X’ earned critical acclaim from music journalism authorities.
With his studio now based in London’s creative melting pot that is the East End, enabling him to share a fountain of knowledge and collaborate with the cities’ ‘up and comers’ including Off Recordings ‘one to watch’ Barber; D Ramirez has proved his versatility and longevity in what can be considered the most tempestuous and fickle industry in existence.
