RAMIRO - Uniting Souls Music
DJ | Founder | Events Director | Record Label President & A/R Director
As founder of Uniting Souls, Ramiro has worked actively over the past two decades to build community through dance music gatherings and artistic expression, becoming internationally-regarded as a "Seattle house music institution" (-The Stranger) and a “West Coast legend” (-KEXP).
During his college years in 1990's San Francisco, Ramiro became an integral part of the Bay Area's then-bourgeoning, now-legendary electronic music movement, inspired by the creative, conscious elements of the tight-knit SF community (ComeUnity, Wicked, Sunset, The Gathering, Freedom, Stompy, Zendada, Kundalini, etc.). With the help of friends, Ramiro founded Uniting Souls in 1997, producing over 50 events in the Bay Area throughout the mid-to-late '90s, gaining a devoted following, and a reputation for quality music with friendly, fun, down-to-earth vibes on the dance floor.
Since making Seattle home in the spring of 2000, Ramiro has received lots of love from the community, producing & performing at over 700 events - including club nights, underground warehouse parties, art events, boat parties, park parties, and major area festivals like Cascadia NW, Photosynthesis, Hempfest, Shift, and Decibel.
From 2004-2013, Ramiro also co-produced & performed at the annual Future Funk showcases at Decibel, as well as at the legendary Magnetic/Kinetic event series at the Pacific Science Center, home of the famous robotic dinosaurs, Planetarium, tropical butterflies & insect rooms.
In 2004, Ramiro launched the record label branch, Uniting Souls Music, which has featured several chart-topping releases, annual sales in over 70 countries, and licensing deals with some of the globe's top labels & services, including Toolroom (UK), Balance (Australia), Voltaire & Recovery Tech (Germany), Exotic Refreshment (Poland), Beaubar (Belgium), NordicTrax (Canada), and San Francisco seminal imprint Om Records.
Through his DJ sets, Ramiro aims to inspire connection and celebrate the special bonding experience we all share through music & dance. Ramiro’s mixes & sets each tell a story, working the groove & bringing the love, creating a space where all feel welcome. A seasoned veteran behind the decks, Ramiro’s affinity & ability to connect with the dance floor is widely evident during his sets & enjoyed by thousands of dancers year after year. You can find him every last Saturday at his monthly residency Diggin' Deep, at Seattle's much-loved Monkey Loft.
