Seemingly out of nowhere, the first time Ronnie Spiteri turned heads on the global circuit was in 2016 when
Jamie Jones dropped his track ‘Thin & Crispy’ during a live BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix broadcast from his
Paradise party on the iconic terrace at DC10, Ibiza. For many this would be a career high – for Ronnie
though, it was a benchmark of things to come.
Fast forward to 2019 and Ronnie has already ticked off a coveted summer residency at Amnesia, Ibiza for Do
Not Sleep, released a Beatport Top 20 debut artist album, ‘True Colours’, which was supported by Alan
Fitzpatrick, Nicole Moudaber and Hot Since 82, had his Multiply EP on Knee Deep In Sound named by Pete
Tong as his Essential New Tune, as well as being tipped as 2018’s ‘Future Star’ by Pete – a prediction that
Ronnie has rightly earned and more importantly, lived up to.
These kinds of achievements don’t happen by accident though; having spent his entire life immersed in
dance music – encouraged by his father, a local promoter – Ronnie carved his niche in the industry the old-
fashioned way through years of practice and several long-standing residencies in his hometown of
Southampton. Armed with an intimate understanding of the workings of the dance floor, Ronnie has graced
the decks at world-class venues and parties across the globe, including We Are The Brave, Elrow in the Park,
Abode Festival and AIR in Amsterdam, alongside his global residency for Do Not Sleep which has seen him
perform across Europe and South America.
His sound is an inimitable blend of precision techno with a smattering of house, drawing on a passion for the
old school warehouse parties which are a clear inspiration throughout his productions. Signed to labels like
Alan Fitzpatrick’s ‘We Are The Brave’, Hot Since 82’s ‘Knee Deep In Sound’, Adam Beyer’s ‘Truesoul’, Steve
Lawler’s iVAV / VIVa, and Anja Schneiders ‘Mobilee’, Ronnie’s music is being spun week in week out by the
scene’s most respected tastemakers, including Adam Beyer, Joris Voorn, Anja Schnieder, Alan Fitzpatrick,
Jamie Jones, Darius Syrossian, wAFF, Sante, Josh Butler, Sidney Charles, Fatboy Slim and Reset Robot.
Looking to the future, 2019 is going to be his busiest yet with a second bi-weekly Ibiza residency for Do Not
Sleep, an EP on We Are The Brave which has already been premiered by Danny Howard on BBC Radio 1, a
podcast on Pioneer DJ Radio and on board all British Airways flights worldwide, collabs with Alan Fitzpatrick,
Leon and Markus Homm, and forthcoming releases on Knee Deep In Sound, Truesoul, Do Not Sleep and
Kenja – his own imprint which is going from strength to strength.
Achieving all this in just two years has set a standard for Ronnie moving forwards – expect 2019 to be blow
all this out of the water though and be the year that cements him as one of the scene’s most exciting DJ /
Producers on a global level.
