Electro-house pioneer D. Ramirez (Dean Marriott) has been in the game for a while. He’s achieved five top 20 hits and was awarded Best Remix and Best Producer in DJ Magazine’s 2007 awards.

But in the past few years he has taken a step back from that life to concentrate on a new sound that draws on the sounds of deep house and techno.

Working in his studio in the UK, he has just finished his latest track, “Satur8” which truly shows the new direction he is going with his sound. His tracks are made for the club and this one is no exception. At times it feel very epic and just makes you want to move your body in any way possible.

Besides working on his new tracks, he is set to do a mini tour (tour dates below) across North America in August. A rare treat as he doesn’t come here all the time.

If you cant make it to one of his shows, then definitely check out his latest mixtape he has posted, it is quite a treat.
