DJ MADSKILLZ - Carinval Chaos incl. Ramon Tapia remix on Formatik Records
After the huge success of the catalogue number 005, Formatic Records has carved the next dance board. The beginning of the new year gives thanks to the constructing DJ Madskillz- presenting the bottom of a noble carnival-wagon, which drills itself through the castle walls of lethargy like a trojan horse. Behind it the client in person jumps out of the bellies strong vehicle and brings the Format:B remix, making even more tumult in the- without a doubt from luck traced- party bodies. The communal phenomenon that DJ Madskillz describes as carnival chaos is also being picked up by Ramon Tapia, who (as usual) bits the celebrating horse from behind making it spit fire in front during peak-time. A movement with pyrotechnical potential in the yet young post New-Years-Eve-2010-Era.

Outstanding Ramon Tapia Rmx - MARTIN EYERER & BENNO BLOME – Pianoroll Remix
No doubt, the original track from Martin Eyerer & Benno Blome is definitely very different and special. And the idea of putting a jazzfunk organ on top of a driving groove received big respect from countless tastemakers. Like from Audiofly, who loved it so much, that they did an edit, which will now get its proper release. A brilliant work by simply adding some bits and pieces to the groove which now makes it 10 times more effective and easier to play. Additionally wonderboy Ramon Tapia found a great way of fusing parts of the original organ with a big bassline and pushing percussions. Looking forward for Ramon’s album in winter 2009.

Ramon Tapia - Second Chapter EP - OUT NOW!
Right after Ramon Tapia’s amazing success with his mini album “Mini Jack” and also his great contribution “Mi Esposa” for the Munich Disco Tech EP Vol. 3 on Great Stuff, he’s back with his second EP for Tomcraft’s label Craft Music. Three stunning tracks, which are roadtested and improved during his dj gigs during the past months and which prove again his big talent. 2009 should be his year..
Ramon Tapia alias El Carlitto, son of a Chilenean musician who had to run from his home country as he stood up against the regime, and a Dutch woman who was brave enough to fall in love, is a funny character, a very ambitious one: No one would have guessed he, the young jeweler working behind the counter of an Antwerp record shop, would one day release records on labels as renowned as Soma Rec,Remote Area , Turbo Rec, , 100 % Pure , Greatstuff ,Intacto and ofcourse not to forget his own label ( Aella Music ) that he runs together with Hermanez . But he does! And he does not stop there! With remixes for Mauro Picotto , Silicon Soul ,dj Sneak , Ni Fanciulli , Armand van Helden and many more under his belt, things are looking more than good for the energetic player.
With a happy past in gabba and Michael Jackson and Quincy Jones roots, Ramon has a firm understanding of diversity and a very broad taste in music, readily amplified by his open mind and soul. His Latin background and his Dutch upbringing perfectly explain his cultural curiosity and his deep rooted sense for groove and rhythm. Shimmering through in his intrinsic productions is his love for structural buildups and breakdowns and harmonies which underlay the driving beats.
Mission: “To make people move by taking them on a trip in my musical head without even going into my head,” laughs Ramon, who started getting into making music to “have more feeling for the music. I started with some guy I knew from the shop then I learned step by step to create my own sound. After a while I got the impression that the people I worked with never did the things that I had flying around in my head, so I started to do my own stuff. It gives me a huge satisfaction when I see people smile when they hear my music.”
“A lot of music has had a huge influence on my productions: I like everything from oldskool rap, Ice T/NWA, Snoop, Boards of Canada, totally freaked out stuff, everything that makes sound and moves me. I will buy and play electro, house, minimal, whatever you wanna call it, I like everything. I also love the old Latino stuff, the folk of Latin America.”
It shows: Ramon’s music indeed makes people smile - and bounce. It’s filled with the joyous exuberance of the high octane party spirit that initially inspired Ramon to get involved when he was young. It was actually down to his two elder sisters whose musical taste had a huge influence on the youngster. Returning home from the most renowned clubs of the Nineties their gleaming eyes told tales of exuberance and liberation, making Ramon aware of the power of the electronic beats.
Completely fascinated by the sounds of Front 242, Frank De Wulf, Kraftwerk, A Split Second, Tyree Cooper and Kevin "Reese" Saunderson, it was only after his move to Belgium’s techno power capital Antwerp that Ramon started to buy vinyl and become involved in DJing. Working in a record shop while studying to be a gold smith, he realized that music was his life, subconsciously tracing his father’s foot steps.
His dad, the only other musician in the family and whose music was provocative enough to enrage the repressive military government of his home country Chile, is possibly one of the main reasons why Ramon does not get disheartened on his way to the top. “I just want to do my own thing and play.”
