East London-born Ramsey, grew up on a musical diet of soul, rare groove and jazz funk. He first took to the turntables in 1985, and was also featured on Jonathan Ross’s Channel 4 music show Soul Train. Ramsey’s djing career started off as a hobby, but stepped up a gear when pirate stations launched in his local area Hackney.

Ramsey began spinning on radio stations Defection, and Rush FM, where he was amongst the likes of Shabba D, Mixmaster Max, MC Wallace and Goldie, who would come and MC for him during his sets. Ramsey returned to his soulful roots and began to spin US garage, having decided that the increasingly tight jungle scene was hard to break into. He was one of the first DJs to play garage on a Saturday morning show on Rush FM, testing early scene-shaping tracks, from the likes of Nightcrawlers and Robin S.

The show got plenty of positive response, and Ramsey started getting bookings to play garage at Roast (along side Norris Windross, Matt Jam Lamont and Karl Brown) as well as underground garage haunts, such as east London’s Dungeons. Ramsey met future djing partner DJ Fen, through a friend on an off chance meeting in a local phone shop. Ramsey invited Fen on to Freek FM (his current station at the time) . This was to be the start of the internationally known duo ‘Ramsey & Fen’.

They began playing out at the station’s own night Freek in the Manor, as well as, the majority of the UK garage scene’s founding clubs like La Cosa Nostra, Zoo’s Lord of the Underground, Rhythm Promotions’ The Breakfast Club, Sun City, Numb Nums (as residents) and Twice as Nice. Ramsey & Fen decided to leave Freek FM to form their own pirate station London Underground. It was through London Underground they got their first remix work, when the Trinity/SOUR record label asked Ramsey & Fen to provide garage mixes of Kim Mazelle’s Big Baby and Quality which quickly became underground anthems. Ramsey & Fen always retained their love of radio, and in the late 90’s the pair guested on legal stations and have delved into music TV having filmed an appearance on a Wise Buddha pilot production.

Ramsey & Fen stepped up a gear further more, kicking off with the excellent single Favourite Part of Me (featuring Maxwell D) which was soon signed onto the massive BMG label. This wasn’t the first time they found themselves talking to senior executives at a major label, Ramsey & Fen’s two-step classic anthem Love Bug was picked up by Nebula, a sub division of EMI Records. Although major success seemed to come easy to the duo, they still worked on their underground label BUG Records linking up with up and coming artists to produce anthem after anthem.

As a club DJ, Ramsey has played across the globe, reaching Japan, Switzerland, Amsterdam (playing at the massive Dance Valley Festival) Tenerife, Miami, Germany, Turkey, Grease, Majorca, and of course Ibiza and Ayia Napa in Cyprus. Ramsey was an innovator in Ayia Napa, alongside Nick Power and Steve Jackson of Kiss 100, where they pioneered the playing of underground garage. This innovative move radically shifted the club scene there, and shaped the place as one of the top partying destinations in Europe. Having developed the clubbing scene on the southern Greek part of Cyprus, Ramsey then turned his attention to the northern Turkish side of the island, where he, along with fellow DJ J Junior, formed Cyprus Music Festivals. This was another ground-breaking development for the dance scene in Cyprus, with ongoing annual events, such as The Mid Summer Ball, which was the first series of events playing pure house, garage, and old skool classics.

Ramsey is currently working on many more exciting projects For his new record label He started a couple of years ago in 2020 called back 2 bump records where he’ll be working alongside some friends and new projects bringing in younger artists for the Label also currently have been playing for the last two years on the Almighty Centreforce with his regular show fully loaded on Tuesdays 2 pm till 4 pm where he plays a mixture of house and garage and classic anthems from the early 80s till present day .
