Spanish DJ/producer Ramiro López (listen to his Big Shot Guest Mix here) has pushed his career forward in many ways this year. His 2014 collaboration with Coyu called “That’s Not Happening” got a second life courtesy of a phenomenal remix by Nicole Moudaber. Among other releases López dropped Apt 13, a sweet lil’ two-track EP on Chus & Ceballos’ Stereo Productions. Plus, he shifted the Odd Recordings label he co-runs with Arjun Vagale into next gear. Before he got on a plane to play his debut gigs in San Francsico and Los Angeles this weekend, López took time out from a studio session to answer our burning questions — by video (!) — about his pair of West Coast gigs, realizing his dream of releasing on Adam Beyer’s Drumcode in September and a summer filled with memorable gigs at Amnesia in Ibiza and all over South America.
Ramiro López plays F8 Club in San Francisco on August 26 and Exchange LA on August 27 with UMEK and Oscar L.
