Hey Ramyen, how are you, what’s good and bad in your world right now?

Everything is going well! Summer is here and my schedule is packed! I’m thrilled. My event brand MELLOW is doing great, and we’ve launched a new media concept called JOLLY ROGER, which I find incredibly exciting!

Can you remember the first time you really fell in love with electronic music, where it was, who was on, and why it hooked you in?

I remember that with an old friend Yoran, we used to listen to sets from major festivals on repeat, including Carl Cox. We were in college at the time, and it really energized us, even the after-movies were on repeat.

What have been the most important lessons you have learned as a DJ and producer in your career so far?

I’ve learned that nothing is guaranteed, and that you have to constantly reinvent yourself both artistically and from a marketing standpoint. Frustration and surprise are two emotions that I’ve also learned to create, and it’s very interesting.

What was the last record or DJ set you heard that really stood out and made you think ‘wow’?

I recently discovered a DJ I didn’t know about, Fafi Abdel Nour, who played on the Minimal stage at Marvellous Island. His set was sick!

What inspired the new EP on Indie House Records – what was the aim?

It all started from a joke about a cocktail that is made in a well-known restaurant in Paris called Ferdi. Then, Jordan, the singer, wrote the lyrics, and it turned into a really interesting summer track.

It has had high profile support – Jamie Jones, Paco Osuna, etc. – what does that mean to you?

It’s always touching when artists support the tracks we produce, it gives a sense of accomplishment. But I love it even more when my close friends sing along to the lyrics of the track!

What defines your own signature sound, what do you want to be known for?

I would like to be remembered as the guy you shouldn’t miss, the set where something special is about to happen, the ultimate party experience.

What gear do you use, is that important to you in any way whether in the booth or studio?

I’m more of a synth, Logic Pro, drum machine kind of guy. The Roland TR8s is a really interesting drum machine. In the booth, I’m also classic, but it’s true that we quickly become addicts to new technology, like the V10 mixer and CDJ3000.

What’s next for you after this, what do you have on over the summer, what are you working on?

Alright, it’s time for promotion! Every Tuesday, I’ll be at Pablo, every other Saturday at Indie Beach in St. Tropez. I have a few dates in Europe, a festival in Corsica, all cool stuff! I’m also excited for the release of my track “Can You?” on Frau Blau’s house label and “Around Fire” on SuperSapiens by Luca Saporito, both collaborations with my protege Juliann.

What is one thing that you would change about the dance music world if you could?

Let’s say 2 things, bad sound system shows and track requests.
