D Ramirez's career as a hugely busy producer and DJ is not to be sniffed at. Having played on every continent he has performed at festivals like Glastonbury and Global Gathering and held residencies at the world's top clubs; both Cream and Space in Ibiza and Avalon In Los Angeles to name a few.
As well as commercial success with charting hits and even a Top Of The Pops appearance, D. Ramirez ha
s also received a number of illustrious industry awards throughout his career as a producer from the likes of 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'. His work with Mark Knight and Toolroom Records has also garnered critical acclaim, most famously his and Mark's collaborative track 'Downpipe' which became an underground anthem around the world. Other notable collaborations have been ice-cold house tracks with James Mowbray and Matt Tolfrey, plus two co-productions on the 2011 Underworld album 'Barking'.
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. 2012 has much in store for D. Ramirez already, a relocation to New York in May will see him begin a new collaboration series with some of the city's most exciting producers. Look out for his new productions for Germany's Great Stuff label as well as remixes and productions for Umek's 1605 to name a few - 2012 looks set to be the most exciting year yet!
