Cardiff’s Cayne Ramos has a long history with, and deep understanding of, electronic music. Way back in the 90s he was stuck into jungle and myriad pirate radio stations, soaking up influences and honing his understanding of what works on the floor. Soon after came the garage explosion, something which also had an impact on Cayne and saw him MCing under the Chico alias for seminal acts like Tuff Jam, Mike Ruff Cut Lloyd, EZ and Dreem Team. Ever evolving and refining his tastes, the mid naughties saw Cayne step away from the mic and into the booth, DJing at and hosting his own regular UK funky nights on the bristling South West scene.
Channeling all those experiences and influences from over the years into his own studio productions, Cayne Ramos headed into new ground as The Organ Grinder off the back of a fine start to his career. As such Ramos served up a knowing brand of house music that nods its hat to the New York scene of the 90s at the same time as looking to the future. Arriving on esteemed labels like Catapult and Gerd’s influential 4Lux, The Organ Grinder’s music has brought him plenty of deserved attention and even a career-defining gig at the much-lauded Berlin Mecca, Panorama Bar.
