Today we’d like to introduce you to Irving Ramos.
Irving, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I was involved in a Christian church band with my brother. I was able to grow heavily in the music by playing keyboard and the drums. That was the start of my music career. During college in the bay area, it was all about culture, that’s when I became a DJ and producing beats for artists. It helped me grow and shaped who I am today. People started to know who I was during my events and social media. Moving back to Los Angeles where I am from is the home of the celebrities. I joined the Hollywood stars and was walking the streets of West Hollywood Blvd to catch my gigs. I had a chance to bring out my name in Las Vegas. I love music it is my passion, it gives me confidence and with experience brings success.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
After graduating from SFSU with a bachelor’s in Audio Production, my main focus was to find a stable job in my field, a start of something new. Working with the public can be a little hectic. Especially when covid-19 took over and made it even more stressful. I keep my work and time balanced by focusing on my goals and staying consistent. Also investing time in friends and family and taking care of my dog; she’s like a daughter to me, my roommate. I can not let work take over my path in music. I have to share my time and put in extra hours for my music, it’s my passion. I don’t mind working for my success it’s all about timing. When my job does not provide me with more pay and hours, I learn how to cope and find ways to keep my life balanced.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I Deejay and Produce. During school, I had network connections that helped me become a figure in the music industry. I was able to collaborate with a few people who were also on their way in the music industry and managing their own business like Chris O’ Bannon, DJ Mikecool, Gogetta KB, Innocent Mind, Marce B, DJ Lazyboy, Dacoldsteppa, Jarvis Neely, Los Rakas, and many more. No one is perfect, we all trying to do and become better and turn it into something big.
What would you say have been one of the most important lessons you’ve learned?
The lessons in music I learned came as a child. Every step at a time. Experience pays off. No doubt.
