Raised in a family with a musical taste steeped in rich Mexican culture, Victor Hugo Ramos was born with rhythm in his veins. At the pivotal age of 16, he would sneak into clubs in Tijuana to soak in the waves of early inspiration. Driven by a beat he could not ignore, Victor bought his first DJ setup and began mixing songs that were making an impression on him, regardless of genre. This forward-thinking mentality would soon become crucial in the development of the Harvard Bass sound.
Harvard Bass combines smooth, minimal beats and deep ghetto house grooves with corrosively addicting drum patterns. “Techyes”, an unforgettable collaboration with the legendary Green Velvet, harkens back to the glory days of techno while more recent tracks like, “Lazer Beams” (Relief Records) & “Plex” Dubfire’s Sci-Tec Digital Label, incorporate this influence with other elements that come off as retro yet modern simultaneously.
With the creation of Bump City Records, Harvard Bass is extending his brand to other talented producers and ensuring that the scene stays fresh with creative ideas. Constant praise pouring in from respected DJs such as Dubfire , Richie Hawtin, Boys Noize, Tiga, and DJ Pierre salutes the burgeoning musical niche that is taking form, with Harvard Bass at the forefront. Armed with the talent and tenacity to succeed, Harvard Bass has been cemented as a force to be reckoned with in House, Techno music and beyond.
