Named breakthrough producer of 2009 by a legend as tall as Roger Sanchez, you’d expect big things from rising global star Abel Ramos.
For those unaware of Abel, Axwell signed his debut release ‘Rotterdam With Love’ to the bulging Axtone label, and subsequently turned the head of Sanchez with his crystal clear and punchy production technique. Mark Knight, possibly one of the biggest UK luminaries of underground house, signed two of his tracks ‘Fantastic’ and ‘Sound of The Drums’ to Toolroom knights label and even French-man of the moment, David Guetta asked him to remix two of his latest singles, ‘When Love Takes Over’ and ‘Sexy Bitch’. .
If that wasn’t big enough reason to start paying attention, Norman Cook signed Abel’s remix of Fatboy Slim’s immortal classic ‘Right Here, Right Now’ to Skint after hearing it just once. It has to be said Abels steadily meteoric rise has seen him show the world how far an ear for good sound and a solid DJ repertoire can take you, earning bookings for some of the biggest clubs around the world, and constantly wowing the electronic music elite.
For more recent proof, Abel recently signed a label-deal for his popular imprint ‘With Love Music’ under the cosy, experienced wing of Spinnin’ Record the house giant have also spread held artists including Sidney Samson and Sander van Doorn under their watch.
Abel is also part of the recently formed trio ‘The New Iberican League’ with DJ Chus and David Penn, with their debut track released in December, they will unveil their first live performance at the Amsterdam Dance Event at Escape, 22nd October.
Not content with setting dance floors on fire with his inch-perfect DJ’ing skills and creative productions, Abel also commands the radio waves on a weekly basis, hosting his label program ‘With Love Music’ on Spain’s most popular radio station, LocaFM, aired every Monday from 10-11pm (GMT+1) and can be listened to online via www.locafm.com and iTunes.
With all the above and DJ dates this year at venues from Cielo, NYC to Amnesia, Ibiza and Global Gathering Poland, Abel Ramos has more than shown that he is worth his salt, continuing to turn heads and wow audiences on a regular basis. With Love Music’s second release, ‘Where Is The Love’ feat. Rozalla is out now with remixes released in February 2011.
