All About Ramon Tapia

Ramon Tapia was born and raised in Holland with a Dutch mother and Chilean father – his upbringing had an eclectic mix of cultures, which in turn developed and influenced his decision to become a musician.

Ramon Tapia likes to raise his bar, and his sound evolves constantly with a new, inspiring sound. In 2023, he entered the “Raw Techno” Techno Top 10 Charts with a bang, with tracks like his collaboration with Gaston Zani, “Friction” on Planet Rhythm, and “Circular” on Christian Smith’s Tronic Music in 2024. Expect collaborations and remixes for Pan-Pot, Hertz, and much more.

His skills aren’t limited to producing. He is also a highly skilled DJ, performing for crowds all around the world. He has a special way of connecting with the audience and taking them on an intense musical journey with his rolling / up-tempo, raw sound. So far, you might have danced with him on festivals like Tomorrowland, Caprices Festival, Drumcode Festival, May Day, and Loveland, and the list is counting.

With an impressive collection of releases on some of the biggest labels, Ramon Tapia decided to start his very own imprint, “Say What?” Records, in 2012. The label delivers proper dancefloor-ready techno from respected names and new kids under his supervision.

It all started when he gradually learned how to produce tracks solo, with a foundation in pounding techno and the hardcore scene. This resulted in several releases and remixes. While going to school to become a goldsmith, he had a job in Antwerp’s famous record store, USA Import, where he sculpted a broad taste in music and his production skills along the way.

He found his resurgence in the 00’s, forging a new school techno sound with his release “Land of Drum” on Pocket, the sublabel of Music Man, a release on Gayle San’s label Equator, and more house-styled tracks on New York’s legendary Strictly Rhythm label. That’s where his name catapulted into the limelight, becoming the biggest turning point for his career, resulting in a residency at Sankey’s Ibiza for three years, multiple bookings around the globe, a rapidly growing loyal fan base, and global recognition!
