Born in Barcelona (Spain) Ricardo’s career in the music industry started in the 80´s (1988), initially as a Funky D.J., and shortly after that, he was playing House music, which was the basis of his firsts sessions.
His enormous talent and his excellent music selection led to his move into a large discothèque, “La Sala Desliz.” Shortly after, he was working in famous venues, such as “Comics “and “Verdi”, while at the same time being involved in some of the major After Hours in Barcelona like “DB” and “Kodigo”.
One year later, while still spinning in the After Hours, he began working along side with Cesar de Melero in” ON-OFF” (Poble Espanyol’s Club). It was at this time that Ricardo began to be recognized as being among the group of prestigious deejays working in Barcelona, and also in Ibiza and a level of international recognition was accruing.By now the combination of foreign do acts were creating a new vibrancy on the Barcelona’s music scene.
Ricardo’s next residency, in the famous “Chasis” in Mataro, was to be the most important in terms of his professional career. (He performed in a club where the attendance reached 10.000 people each weekend).For the next 9 years in Chasis, he achieved major success and his reputation spread throughout Spain.
With the assistance of Julio Posadas he began to make contacts with record producers and his first recording made it to No. 1 on both the dance floors and radio play lists, This success resulted in the issue of another four maxis under the name of the Chasis.
Ricardo formed such ideas as Two concepts, Ducted, Access, a version of Luna de sangre by Atahualpa and two remixes for Pedro Miras and Alberto Tapia, “The Balloon” and “it’s a Dream.”These were followed by the production of 5 records from the group “Interplanet”.
