Dj ricardo moreno, was born on the 17th of june 1978.
In 1997 for the first time I went to club “the Globe” in Beek (limburg, NL).
There I saw a DJ at work and I asked him where he bought his records. The next week I was for the first time at Disco-Kid in Rekem (Belgium). My biggest hobby became a fact.
One year later the mondial opened it’s doors. Danny van Wauwe (a.k.a. DJ Decoy) was a resident there., He then taught me a lot of the DJ profession. At that time I was spinning the records under the name of DJ Stanton V. After some little parties to get some experience, in 1999 a dream came true. The mondial was looking for a DJ for the local schoolparties. Danny van Wauwe then introduced me to Rene Boonstra, owner of the mondial. The next week I was spinning my records for the first time in a big club. After some of these schoolparties I became a warming up DJ for the fridaynights. I played my tunes before the residents Bart Maes and Safe-P. Mondial was the first club where I became a resident.
A few months later I came in contact with Robert Pachen. He asked me to play at a party of “shut up and dance”. This was my first big gig. My name was on the flyer of the party together with DJ Don (a.k.a. Johan Gielen) and DJ Jean. This was a really great experience.
After a year working with pleasure at the mondial, it was time for a new challenge. The Nightlive in Maastricht went to program House-music and I became a resident DJ for the wednesdaynight. Nightlive gave me the chance to play my records with the most famous DJ’s of the Netherlands and Belgium. Because of that I was the first DJ in Limburg to play together with Tiësto after his breakthrough on innercity. That night nightlive was sold out! And, believe it or not, many nights would follow. Famous DJ’s of the Netherlands couldn’t believe that it could be so crowded on a wednesdaynight (just a working day!) at a club. I entertained the people every week until the dawn broke.
Here are some dj’s DJ Ricardo Moreno played with:
Tiësto, armin van buuren, marco v, Benjamin bates, rene amesz, Erick e, 100% isis, jean, johan gielen, marko from la rocca, bart maes, mark van dale, natarcia, roog, Marcello, dimitri, joost van bellen, michel de hey, scot mac, decoy, safe p, fedde le grand, e-craig.
Marco V once asked me if I wanted to play at the danssalon in eindhoven. At that time he was going to quit his regular thursdaynight, He introduced me to the owner. After a review with the owner it was cancelled unfortunately.
In 2002 I quitted at the nightlive. The time there was a great time. After then I only did some gigs. Most memorable were:
The Limburg Loveparade 2nd edition where I was on a playing on a truck (same as loveparade berlin, but then smaller) wich was driving through Geleen. Herefore I would like to thank Anthems dance events; Timo Pirnay, DJ Base and pieter grouwels
Playland (organized by non-x-posed) at “de platte zoal” in Maastricht; together with Marko from La rocca (famous club in Belgium)
And ofcourse there were a lot of small, parties.
In 2005 Dj aston of the mondial called me and asked me if I wanted to play at a new club. I was resident for a few weeks at the Espacha (echt). Magda and rico (the owners of the espacha) then took me to la rocca where I saw marko spinning some records. That style suited me very good, so good that I started thinking of a new concept. Because of this I also changed my name into dj Ricardo Moreno. The style I’m now spinning is the style you mostly will hear on Ibiza; lots of progressive, house and electro.
In the near future I would like to have more gigs in the Netherlands, but also outside of the Netherlands.
My goal is to play a gig at a club on Ibiza.
You’ll be hearing more of dj Ricardo Moreno in the upcoming time.
“I’ll see you on the next party!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
