When a house music legend like Roger Sanchez names his Breakthrough DJ/Producer of 2009 (DJ MAG), it’s time to sit up and take notice - meet Abel Ramos. Born in February 1973 and raised in Madrid, Abel started DJing at a local club, aged just 15, playing anything that was synth-driven from Human League to Nitzer Ebb or Acid House. It didn’t take long for Abel to establish himself as one of Spain’s most talented DJs, catching the ears of thousands along the way and winning awards such as Best National DJ from Spain’s answer to Mixmag, ‘Deejay Magazine’, gaining top gigs for the likes of Sensation, Rock In Rio, Global Gathering, and frequenting places as far afield as Australia. Abel has also established his SOLO event, which now attracts over 5000 people to the yearly show. Abel Ramos has also been known for working alongside big music industry names of today such as Axwell & David Guetta!
Now Abel Ramos teams up with Joan Reyes who -in just one year- had a Beatport #1 that became the 2nd best selling track of the year, plus razed half the planet with a hit like " Oye Mira " and scored two major electronic music awards such as Best Breakthrough Producer of the Year being the only Spanish artist nominated on Beatport Music Awards surrounded by names like Swedish House Mafia, Deadmau5, Wolfgang Gartner or Avicii! Also remixing some of the best Dance artists, he is known for publishing under major labels and visiting many clubs worldwide at only 23 years old!
In February 2011 he received the DeejayMag award that recognized him as the Best Breakthrough Producer of the Year, as well as get the second position as Best Breakthrough DJ and third as Best Producer of 2010 and entered into the Top20 best Spanish artists list alongside names like David Penn, Abel Ramos, DJ Chus and Wally Lopez. Months later, Joan received the DJOner award that also crowned him as Best Breakthrough Producer of the Year, culminating the fantastic season that 2010 meant to him. Joan Reyes has managed to place his name in the dance scene with quality and originality, rejecting any kind of label and pigeonhole their sound, defining his style as "music for everybody" and creating a world after its own way of understanding EDM.
