The best DJs in the world are all multi-faceted, well established, skilled audio manipulators, and Ramses Ja is no exception. For years, he has provided his talents to the masses via television, radio waves and in-person performances. Because of the several capacities in which he has functioned, Ramses Ja brings a unique presence to the turntables and a deeper understanding of entertainment to the airwaves.
As a producer, Ramses Ja has been fortunate enough to have engineered recording sessions, or created remixes for the likes of Rihanna, Young Jeezy, Ice Cube, Xzibit, Ja Rule, Baby Bash, and Rick Ross among many others. He has provided production/imaging for Trinity Audio Group for their Indamixx Portable Studio, BreakTheCrates.com (the world’s foremost DJ-servicing website), G-Unit Records, VH1, and several major-market radio stations on the west coast.
As a radio host, he has scored exclusive interviews from the likes of Lupe Fiasco, David Banner, The Game, Talib Kweli, and many others. Since early 2006, he has anchored the #1 rated, world-renowned Hip-Hop radio show Friday Night Flavas (later/currently dubbed R.E.D.Y. Set Radio) alongside Bootleg Kev. He has gained notoriety in the Hip-Hop community as one of the west coast’s go-to record-breakers for artist and labels alike.
As an Official Bum Squad DJ and a member of the prestigious DJ Vatican, Ramses has spun for several major-market radio stations, stadium-sized concerts, exclusive nightclubs, and upscale, private functions. In doing so, he has lent his skills to several noteworthy celebrities including The Wu-Tang Clan, Warren G, DMX, EPMD, Rakim, Das EFX, Amare’ Stoudemire (New York Knicks), Adrian Wilson (Arizona Cardinals), and G-Unit Records.
It’s no secret that Ramses Ja knows how to rock a party. Being the younger brother of Los Angeles’ legend and Dilated Peoples’ frontman Rakaa “Iriscience” Taylor ensured a proper musical upbringing and a deeper respect for the art of DJing. Nowadays, infusing elements from nearly every type of music into his set allows him to be unique, versatile, and exciting to nearly every type of crowd! Ramses Ja, however, believes wholeheartedly in the immortal words of Coolio: “Ain’t no party like a west-coast party ‘cause a west-coast party don’t stop!” Word!
