The positive light and pure excitement that Ramiro Lopez has for life is directly reflected into his music. The Spanish DJ turned producer has been on the electronic music scene since 1996 after finally taking the plunge into music as a career after spending years mixing music as a hobby. With a passion that arose from childhood days spent listening to radio shows and exploring music, then progressing into mixing, and then taking the stage at clubs across Spain as his talent and energy transpired across lively crowds.
With an eclectic taste in music and a consistently evolving style, Ramiro Lopez has transcended the past two decades as a veteran figure in electronic music not just in Spain but around the world. After transitioning from the club life to the studio life, Ramiro Lopez took on the role of producer in addition to DJ. It was at this point that his passion for music exploded, releasing hits like “Clap Your Hands” via Drumcode and “This & That” via INTEC. Currently, Ramiro Lopez is at the helm of Odd Recordings, an Indo-Spanish label known for showcasing “the raw side of techno” with a fresh take on the genre.
Behind all the music is a person truly inspired by the energy around him and the ability to move crowds. For this reason, his music often crosses over genres as he creates music that awakens the crowd and creates happiness across the dance floor. In an interview with EDM Maniac, Ramiro Lopez states “…the people, feeling the crowd, the audience, all that energy is so important to me.”
Even throughout the downturns for everyone in the music industry during quarantine, Ramiro Lopez has continued to keep a positive light shining by channeling his energy into new music. Currently, he is working on new releases coming out in the early half of this year along with a new album release set for release next year. The new album features sixteen tracks so far and counting.
