Ramzi Armani developed a passion for music at the tender age of 12. With his brother (Joseph Armani) working at the forefront of Malta’s clubbing scene, Ramzi was influenced to start DJing and at the age of 13 he had his first gig at Clublounge. This set the ball rolling.
An accumulation of intense one-on-one sessions and a developed interest, landed Ramzi his first opportunity on the ‘macro’ level where at the age of 16, Ramzi featured on the 1st of May lineup, one of Malta’s largest festivals to date. This festival led to an extended string of performances in Malta’s largest clubs and Ramzi continued to experiment with different styles, as well as to establish his technique through practice. Opportunities continued to spring up and at the age of 18, Ramzi had his first international gig where he accompanied his brother to play in Russia back in 2009, as well as in Italy in 2011. These performances instilled confidence within Ramzi which led to the development of his own promotions, Pink Elevator and S.O.A.P, both of which attracted large crowds who gathered to listen to the sounds of Ramzi.
2014 was a revolutionary year for Ramzi’s style of music, where he shifted to a more underground style and established himself through the techhouse and techno genre, particularly during his afternoon sessions at Miracles every Sunday. Such a transition in style led to gigs at Creamfields, as well as at one of Malta’s most popular and successful promotions, Yakuza.
Today, Ramzi continues to find himself playing in Malta’s leading venues and promotions, and it’s only a matter of time before he’ll find himself at the island’s clubbing scene.
