Over the last few years Ralph Session has blessed many dance floors across the globe as both DJ and producer, with his forward thinking approach to the classic soulful sound of New York and the raw, cut up shuffle of Chicago house music. And 2021 was no different with more stunning music including the brilliant ‘Cielo’, a release that saw support from DJs of the highest order and press alike (including here on LHM and across the pond on the wonderful 5Mag site) and ‘You know you want to get up’ with Carla Prather, which featured none other than remixes from Oliver Dollar and Jason Hodges.
The native New Yorker, now based in Barcelona, came out of lock down and straight back behind the decks with bookings that include Barcelona’s famous Nitsa and Macarena Club, and 2022 has been nothing but a continued rise. Current deals for releases on Sole Channel Music, Large and Nervous Records are done with the first EP on Sole Channel about to drop.
Unlike the cliched journey to becoming a DJ/producer – the love of music from an early age, a sibling’s record collection, grade 5 piano – Ralph took a different path that influenced his production work. A serious B-boy/house dancer for years. Years spent on the dance floors of NYC link into his production style and the ability to feel what dancers really need from a piece of music is intrinsic to his work. Ralph’s also a fully qualified audio engineer and merges the meticulous approach of a pro with a free and loose composition style, a combination that has proved extremely effective.
As a DJ, he’s played at Cielo, FunkBox and various warehouses in New York and Chicago, Shakedown Party in Philadelphia, Vocal Booth Weekender and Macarena Club in Spain and Djoon in Paris.
His music which has reaped support from across the DJ spectrum including Danny Krivit, Jimpster, Nightmares On Wax, Kai Alce, Honey Dijon, Black Loops, Francois K, Hector Romero, Luke Solomon, and Dam Swindle. Releasing on multiple labels as well as his own Half Assed Records, recent 2021 releases including the brilliant “Cielo”, have featured on many DJs best releases of the year.
Drawing all these influences together, Ralph Session is a DJ and producer who puts out a cutting-edge take on the classic US house template, producing and delivering music that DJs love and dancers can’t resist. Coming to a dance floor near you soon.
