D.Ramirez (aka Dean Marriott) is one of the hottest properties in Dance music today, with three top twenty singles to his name (including a number 5!) you could easily be mistaken that his music is big, simple and made for the masses. But far from it, Dean has become one of the most bankable remixers on the planet and is currently regarded as one of the most credible producers around.
The biggest development in Deans career came in the late 90’s when he felt he had done all he could with the funky house sound he’d been tagged with and became enthused in the New York tribal sound that was re-emerging. The D.Ramirez moniker was born! Armed with a new guise and a new sound, Dean dropped a string of fantastic releases that led to a frenzy of signings on labels such as Yoshitoshi, Junior, Underwater, Choo Choo, Phonetic, Thrust, Whoop!, Lot 49, Four:Twenty and Toolroom.
Dean also runs his own label Slave Recordings. Now up to the twelth release and with countless radio plays and DJ support, Slave has established itself as one of the most respected, Underground labels, and amazingly Dean also finds time to DJ all over the world in the finest arenas the clubbing world has to offer.
2006 was a massive year for D.Ramirez with underground and chart success with his remix of Bodyrox 'Yeah Yeah', stella remixes for Roger Sanchez, Ferry Corsten & The Plump DJs and his own release 'La Discotek' which made Dean the producer on everybody’s lips, in fact IDJ named him ..4 Player of Year!
With his Sessions mix, Dean places an array of current tracks in the mix including releases from Swedish boys Axwell and Steve Angello, Nathan Fake, Tim Deluxe and Roger Sanchez amongst others and his own remixes and exclusives from his Slave recordings label. It’s a very strong mix and one of the finest ‘Sessions’ to date.
Dean is now touring and will be taking him from Hometown of Sheffield to Glastonbury, Ibiza, Australia and beyond. There will be an official Launch Party at Ministry of Sound.
