D. Ramirez (AKA Dean Marriott) has caught fire. Not only are his solo productions (“Satur8”) and collaborations (Mark Knight & D. Ramirez vs Underworld “Downpipe”) buzzing, but he’s also DJing more than ever. For this reason we ask all dance music fans to give a big up and vote for the man in the “DJ Mag: Top 100 DJs Poll.” Voting closes September 23, 2009 so please pull the lever here: top100djs.net

Speaking of touring, Dean left Manchester airport armed with a video camera in tow. The idea was to faithfully document what it’s like for a DJ on the road. Here we have the down time, the peak time and some candid moments (Watch as Dean celebrates his birthday in the DJ booth with candle-lit cupcakes.)
