Starting off his solo career in 2009, RAM immediately hit the jackpot with the most talked about track of that year “RAMsterdam”.
Supported by all the major trance DJ’s it became the Tune of the Year on ASOT and it was pronounced “best track of the year” by Armin van
This track sparked a series of RAM productions entitled “RAMazing”, “RAMplify”, “RAMbition” to name a few, all of which went on to gain
huge support from the most revered artists in the trance scene and were released on Armada’s ASOT, AVA, FSOE Enhanced.
2013 started off brightly with collaborations with Alex M.O.R.P.H. (Grotesque) Sean Tyas (Beat Boutique) signed to Armada’s AVA.
RAM's biggest track since “RAMsterdam” however saw the light in October 2013, but the reason it was written is a very sad one: the loss of
his beloved wife Amelia. The song was named “RAMelia” and was written in collaboration with composer Geert Huinink and vocalist Susana.
With 7 consecutive plays on A State of Trance, voted Future Favorite with a staggering 61.9% of the votes (the most votes ever @ ASOT) and Armin
already calling “RAMelia” an all-time favorite, “RAMelia” eventually was voted #2 in the Tune of the Year on ASOT 2013.
Because of the huge support from the likes of Aly Fila, Markus Schulz and Armin van Buuren, who played the track on every live set he did, with
seven consecutive plays on ASOT and with the big support from all the Trance DJ’s and Trance Families, it was just a matter of time before
“RAMelia” reached the top of the list.
After its release “RAMelia” raced to the number 1 spot on the Beatport Trance Top 100 after entering at number 3 and the track even reached the
number 15 spot on the Beatport Top 100 Main chart.
But that wasn’t it for 2013. On the 23rd of December “John ‘O Callaghan feat. Audrey Gallagher - Big Sky (Signum RAM remix)” was released
and also ran down the Beatport Trance Top 100 to the #6 spot.
2013 also has been a great year for Grotesque of which he is the resident DJ and programmer. Grotesque has hosted areas at festivals across Europe
including the World’s biggest trance festival Electronic Family, Ultrasonic, Summerlake Outdoor as well as hosting their own indoor festival at the
Famous Maassilo to 4000 clubbers.
The latest Grotesque concept, Grotesque "In Concert " with Markus Schulz was a huge success and sold out, proving to be a suitable closing party of a
very successful year for both Grotesque and RAM.
In 2014 Grotesque also will be hosting the FSOE Subculture Amsterdam Weekender and doing a club tour starting at the Gallery (MOS).
In tandem with this RAM has launched the Grotesque radio show, which goes out weekly on Afterhours FM.
With a lot of new things to come, the new track in the “RAM” series, the start of the Grotesque Music label as well as the making of his debut
album and great collaborations with the likes of Andy Moor and Christina Novelli, Betsie Larkin, Stine Grove, Sean Tyas, Arctic Moon, Sied van Riel
and many more, 2014 looks very bright for RAM.
Despite his busy schedule the first two new tracks of RAM, "Kingdom of Dreams" and the collaboration with Arctic Moon, "Mirakuru" are already signed
to ASOT and FSOE and have been released on March 31st ( Mirakuru) and April 28th (Kingdom of Dreams). "Kingdom of Dreams" and "RAMelia" are also on A
State of Trance 2014 mixed by Armin van Buuren.

Label: How Trance Works
Susana has had an amazing year with 3 top 10 releases (including RAMelia which is still in the trance Beatport top 100!). Having worked with DJs
like Armin van Buuren, Ernesto vs Bastian, Ronski Speed, Stoneface Terminal, Beat Service, Jorn van Deynhoven, Markus Schulz, Aly Fila and many
more she loves working on creative, energetic tracks. This is where Denis Kenzo (one half of Two One) has proven himself over and over again, being
one of the best energetic progressive trance producer. Alone and as part of Two One his tracks left an impression on which he has been building a
credible career. (Lullaby for Two, Dream State(chosen by Armin van Buuren for his ASOT 2013 CD))
Susana (apasă aici)
Susana (born April 1984) grew up in the surroundings of Amsterdam (Netherlands) and has had a passion for music ever since she was a little girl. “I
don’t know how, but I always knew, even at a young age, that I could sing and I have wanted to become a singer ever since I can remember. My bedroom
is basically where it all started. I have spent many hours there, singing along to my dad’s records, teaching myself how to sing by mimicking the
singers.” It didn’t take long, however, for her to expand her singing to the outside world. When it was time for her to go to high school she
deliberately choose a school that offered a lot of room for developing creative activities. It was in this creative environment that she gained a lot
of experience, participating in school plays, Christmas shows and so called “lunch concerts” during lunch breaks. It was also there that she got
in touch with a few fellow students with an alternative/rock band – named “010? after the classroom where they used to rehearse. They were looking
for a lead singer and the choice was easily made. Her time in “010? gave her the chance to develop her lyric writing as well has her performance
skills. In the meantime, 15 years old by that time, she had also begun taking professional singing lessons with conservatory schooled opera singer
Kirsten Schotteldreier, who worked a lot on jazz and classical techniques with Susana as well.
Thus, by the time Susana graduated high school she had d a pretty diverse musical background. Nonetheless, she had never really explored electronic
dance music (EDM) before. This changed when a neighbor of her family, who was impressed after having seen her perform with her band, introduced her to
Raz Nitzan and Adrian Broekhuyse, two producers with an extensive track record in the realm of EDM, especially in trance music. Not long after they
were introduced to each other in 2003 they recorded “Dark Side of the Moon”, in collaboration with Ernesto vs Bastian. Susana’s first ever
trance collaboration turned out to be a success in the scene and eventually led her to work with Armin van Buuren. Susana provided the vocals for
“Shivers”, one of Armin van Buuren’s biggest hits to date, which was released in 2005. Susana regarding her first steps on the dance scene:
“Despite my diverse musical background and my interest in different genres I had never really explored dance music. But once I got involved with it
a whole new world opened up to me and it didn’t take long before I got really passionate about it. There is just a certain emotional energy to it
that really touches me.”
Ever since these first two releases in 2005 Susana’s career has grown steadily. She has a powerful and emotional yet quite unique sound and it
therefore didn’t take long for her to become a hot topic in the dance scene, resulting in follow-up collaborations with Ernesto vs Bastian
(“Stranger in Paradise”) and Armin van Buuren (“If You Should Go”) as well as collaborations with various other talented producers and DJ’s.
Also, performing live in different parts of the world, as she did for example with the Armin Only “Imagine” tour in 2008, has really pushed
Susana’s career. As can be read on the Armada website: “Herstrong on-stage personality and live performance make her a beloved artist to have or
see on stage.”
Another highlight of her career was her collaboration with producer Rex Mundi, which resulted in the release of “Nothing at All” in 2009. It was
Markus Schulz, one of Susana’s favorite DJ’s, that had received the instrumental from Rex Mundi and immediately thought of Susana’s voice as a
perfect match for the track. “Nothing at All”, with its deep sound and dark edge, was a huge success and made it to #15 in the ‘2009 A State of
Trance End of Year Vote’. Susana has a special place in her heart for this track: “The moment I heard the instrumental of “Nothing at All” I
was really overwhelmed by the deep and dark sound of it and, even though this might sound strange, I really felt like this track was meant for me. I
felt an immediate connection to the track. And not only did its success give another huge impulse to my career, it also made me realize more than ever
my passion for progressive trance”.
The journey Susana started out on back in 2003, exploring the realm of EDM, has eventually led her to become the first trance vocalist to be signed as
a solo artist to Armada Music – the label of Armin van Buuren. In May 2010 her debut album “Closer” was released. “Closer” has the format of
a compilation album for which Susana worked with a lot of big names like Dash Berlin, Josh Gabriel, Jorn van Deynhoven, Tenishia and many others. The
first single, Closer (after which the album was named), is a collaboration with Omnia The Blizzard and has been played many times in clubs around
the globe by DJs like Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz and Andy Moor.
The release of her debut album is not the only development that made 2010 an important year for Susana. In June Markus Schulz’ new album “Do You
Dream?” was released including the track “Unsaid” featuring the vocals of Susana. She also provided vocals for Armin van Buuren’s new artist
album “Mirage”. On their intro track “Desiderium 207” people can hear a different side of Susana’s voice as she shows her versatility with
haunting classical vocals that add to the dramatic feel of the opening of Armin’s new album. She was therefore also part of the second Armin Only
tour, the “Mirage” tour, which saw its kick off in Utrecht (Netherlands) on November 13th 2010 and then continued on to countries like Russia,
Argentina, Australia, Lebanon and Poland in 2011. Not only did Susana perform “Desiderium 207” as part of a dramatic opening of the show, but also
“Closer”, “Orbion” and “Shivers”.
In the meantime the success of “Closer” led to the release of a “Closer – The Remixes” album on Armada Music during the summer of 2011.
Around that same time Susana herself entered the studio to start working on new material for a follow-up album. And with success; her sophomore album
“Brave” was released in May 2012 including collabs with Max Graham, Shogun, Beat Service, Rex Mundi and Daniel Kandi.
The last two years have seen Susana tour extensively, visiting places all over the world including Ukraine, Egypt, Lebanon, Russia, Bahrein, Malta,
Taiwan, Argentina, Israel and more. As well as that Susana is one of the first vocalists to ever perform a live acoustic session at an EDM festival
when she joined Eller van Buuren and his band at Electronic Family festival in Holland performing tracks such as Shivers, Closer and Brave.
2013 is set to be another huge year for Susana with collaborations already underway with some high profile artists so watch this space.
