Discovering new EDM talent is always a plus.. When I first got on to the maestro known as Mr. Ramirez – I remember one fateful night on the dance floor! Friends of mine dragged me out after a late night of work and to be honest, I wasn’t feeling like going out. Thank god for friends that don’t take no for an answer… I was dragged kicking and screaming at the beginning then the roles reversed when D Ramirez hit the decks in Toronto that special night. You couldn’t get my ass off the dance floor! This ‘Pioneer’ was a DJ Producer I had some listening experience with but didn’t really have a big connecting moment until I saw him LIVE. The Global Groove Network is all about showcasing global talent that I discover in due time and this particular DJ is someone you need to get on your radar and hit the club when he comes to town!

With a career stretching over 20 years as one of the world’s most respected names in electronic music, D. Ramirez is highly regarded as the driving force behind the tech-house sound that today’s music is built on. His career has seen him play to sell out crowds across the globe at some of the world’s most famous nightclubs. From holding residencies in some of the world’s most iconic clubs, such as the famous Sankeys in Manchester and Ministry of Sound in London – this November sees him starting his Pacha residency in London – as well as Ibiza’s super clubs, Space and Cream, and across the pond in Los Angeles and the city’s clubbing mecca, Avalon; the global dance music community can’t get enough of D. Ramirez and his underground sound. Add to that list his numerous guest appearances from Bali to Singapore, and from Russia to Brazil, it’s clear to see that D. Ramirez is a global icon.

Inspired by the noises of his tough-talking DJ sets, his sound has been rejuvenated of late by deep house, house and techno. If you consider his meticulous DJ mixes where loops, tricks and FX are intricately laced with exceptional accuracy or his studio methods where he’s known to tinker with noises for days on end, this exploration of deeper genre seems a logical and natural progression. His work with Mark Knight and Toolroom Records has garnered critical acclaim, most famously with their collaborative track ‘Downpipe,’ which became an underground anthem around the world. From there, it made perfect sense to continue the Toolroom Records relationship, and D. Ramirez has, once again, raised the bar with his innovative, underground sound with his latest track, “Open Your Eyes,” which made its debut of Toolroom’s Amsterdam Compilation.

As well as commercial success with high chart positioning hits and even an appearance on the famous BBC television music show, Top Of The Pops, D. Ramirez has also received a number of illustrious industry awards throughout his career as a producer, from places DJ Magazine (Best Producer and Best Remix 2007), iDJ (Player of the Year) and even an Ivor Novello nomination for his now classic remix of Bodyrox ‘Yeah Yeah’. With his remixes of Roger Sanchez – Lost (D.Ramirez Lost In Rave Remix), which was named as Pete Tong’s Essential new tune, Plump DJ’s – Electric Disco (D.Ramirez Mix), also an Essential New Tune along with Max Linen – The Soulshaker (D.Ramirez Mix), D. Ramirez had his industry peers tipping their hats to him.
