Founded in 1997, Uniting Souls is internationally regarded as a "Seattle house music institution" (The Stranger).
“UNITING SOULS has contributed to setting standards as to what the Seattle electronic music community has to offer on a local & international level.
It is because of organizations like Uniting Souls that Seattle is a favorite stop among touring electronic musicians.
With e-mail, smart phones, cheap flights, declining costs in music production, and the explosion of information technology, the face of the global music community is rapidly changing, but it is collectives like Uniting Souls that are evolving right alongside to help define and retain humanness in the often impersonal world we’ve created.”
- The Stranger (Seattle’s Largest Weekly)
UNITING SOULS specializes in creating world-class events designed to build community & foster connection through the creative energy of love & house music. Originally founded in San Francisco by Ramiro & Michael Tello in 1997, Uniting Souls has called Seattle home since 2000.
Over the past 20 years, with the support of many amazing artists, friends & family, Uniting Souls has solidified its reputation as one of the West Coast's premier underground house music organizations, producing over 500 events, including club monthlies, boat parties, underground warehouse parties, outdoor parties, and festival showcases, known for their intimate, incredibly good vibes.
Our long-running monthly DIGGIN' DEEP happens every last Saturday at the Monkey Loft (Seattle), and is entering its 8th year in 2017.
We also produce DEEPER ROOTS, a bi-monthly event at Substation on the 2nd Friday of the month.

In 2004, Ramiro launched the record label branch, Uniting Souls Music, whose releases have topped the charts & sold in over 70 countries, and been licensed to some of the world's top labels & services, including the UK's Toolroom, Australia's Balance, Germany's Voltaire & Recovery Tech, Canada's NordicTrax, Belgium's Beaubar, and San Francisco's legendary Om Records.
UNITING SOULS MUSIC is an independent record label based in Seattle, specializing in house music. Evolving from Uniting Souls the event production company, USM is fueled by our desire to showcase the talents of skilled producers within our friends & family, our local Pacific Northwest community, and in the electronic music community-at-large; artists whose vision, innovation, creative spirit, and affinity for expression through dance music yearn to be shared with the rest of the world!
