Please meet Knights Templar from Syria, based in Istanbul. You will get to hear from him more and more often in the future, some say he is the next Sasha. His latest EP on upcoming label Asia Music is a little diamond. Get to know more about him and listen to his tunes!
My name is Abdulla Ramo. I was born in Syria and grew up around the world. When I was a child my idol was my father, because he is the best successful man I have ever seen. When I was 14, I started listening to global underground compilations. It was then when I realised that the underground dance floor is where I belong and decided to make the people dance for life. Since then I started to learn electronic music production by myself at home. One of my best gigs I played was Damascus Pool Parties every Friday (Arabs weekend). It was so much fun sexy girls and amazing crowds who really knows how to party. One of the best gigs I have been to was Sasha & Digweed @ Biel Beirut. I loved the crowds and venue.
Now I live in Istanbul with my keyboard (don’t get it wrong :P). In my house you can find a beautiful terrace and my refrigerator is usually full with Ice Tea. I enjoy watching fashion tv and talking to my best friend Nour a lot. I can spend hours thinking what to order for dinner. One of my favorite places to visit is Argentina, because they have great progressive house. On weekdays I party party party and on weekends I usually listen to pop commercial music because of my friends!!! My favorite song at the moment is Magic –Cold play. A film I watched lately and really liked was butterfly on a wheel. The last series I watched and loved was Californication. I am very inspired by Sasha & Hernan Cattaneo. I love my friends and hate the food here in Turkey. I am addicted to ableton, I just cannot stop working on it. I get totally fucked up, when I work on my production. The next day I need to listen to them again and make few changes that will make it sound better.
Local Suicide reminds me of a great after party.
Tomorrow I will work. Next month more tracks & sets will be on my soundcloud. Next year I will tour the world. In 10 years I hope I will be a successful business man.
If I wasn’t a business man, I would be a petrol engineer. If my life was a Hollywood movie, Ashton Kutcher would have the main role, because I want my life to be a funny movie. If I could have sex with anyone, it would be Candice Swanepoel. If I was a car, I would be a Aston Martin. If I was an animal, I would be a Leopard. If I was a drug I would be Advil pm. If I was an invention, I would be a spacecraft. If I was an object, I would be a Speaker. If I could date myself, I’d say Dude that’s a sick question! If I could play with anyone it would be Sasha. I would like to collaborate with Hernan Cattaneo. If I had only one wish, it would be a green card to heaven. I would never Lie, because I don’t like to get broken or to break anyone.
My word of advice to the reader would be: “everything I want I’m getting it – still not everything – but patience is the key. Just believe in what you want and feel it like if you can touch it.
