My name is Ryan Pamatmat but you might know me as Ryan. I was born in April 29, 1982 and grew up in Manila, Philippines. When I was a child my idol was The Beatles, because they sound amazing. When I was 16, I started djing. It was then when I realised that music is the answer and decided to go for it. Since then I have played around the PH and the UK.
One of my best gigs I played was at the London Insomnia Afterparties. It was so much fun I wish I can do it all over again and not change a thing.
One of the best gigs I have been to was Magda & Troy Pierce in London. I loved the vibe & the music.
Now I live in London, UK with my wife, son & 2 crazy cats. In my house you can find my studio and my refrigerator is usually full with chicken. I enjoy making music & playing live and eating a lot. I can spend hours in the studio making music. One of my favorite places to visit is Manila, because nothing beats home.
On weekdays I work and on weekends I usually party. My favorite song at the moment is Silver Spoon (Original Mix). A film I watched lately and really liked was Anchorman 2. The last series I watched and loved was Breaking Bad.
I am very inspired by underdogs succeeding in life. My dream is to become an astronaut. My worst nightmare is to hear a Miley Cyrus song and see crawling insects. I love meeting people and hate meeting fake ones.
I am addicted to eggs, I just cannot stop eating it. I get totally fucked up, when I drink then eat too much. The next day I need to sleep.
Local Suicide reminds me of great music.
Tomorrow I will eat eggs for breakfast. Next month I will be a dad. Next year I will be home in Manila with my family and friends. In 10 years I hope I will be an astronaut.
If I wasn’t a DJ/Producer, I would be a Graphic designer. If my life was a Hollywood movie, It would be hella funny would have the main role, because thats how I roll! haha! If I could have sex with anyone, it would be My wife and my wife ONLY ;).
If I was a car, I would be a Range Rover. If I was an animal, I would be a Bird. If I was a drug I would be Paracetamol. If I was an invention, I would be an egg dispensing robot. If I was an object, I would be a boring one If I could date myself, I will just stay home and make music while finishing a box of pizza.
If I could play with anyone it would be my baby boy. I would like to collaborate with artists who share the same music I dig. If I had only one wish, it would be to be an astronaut. I would never let opportunities pass me by, because they rarely come my way.
My word of advice to the reader would be to Keep on going. Fuck what everyone says. Just do it!
