Born into 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
house and techno clubs in Tijuana to soak in the waves of early inspiration. Driven by a
beat he could not ignore, he sold all his toys and bought his first DJ set up. Showing a
blatant irreverence to genre boundaries, he spent the countless hours blending tracks into
a hodgepodge of magic much akin to 2 Many Djs.
Ramos' altar ego, Harvard Bass, was spawned in December 2007 in a natural evolution
towards music production. He was instantly adopted by Sound Pellegrino, an Institubes
sub-label curated by Teki Latex and DJ Orgasmic, after they invited him to remix
As demonstrated in his debut single “Caked” and “81”, the music of Harvard Bass is a
combination of elegant, smooth and sophisticated minimalism on one side and bad ass
dirty jacking ghetto house grooves with filthy drums and simple, obsessive riffs on the
other. Such a formula has earned him massive support from DJs like Tiga, Laidback
Luke, Crookers, Benny Benassi, Diplo, Brodinski, Christian Martin, Jess & Crabbe,
Sinden, Feadz, Acid Girls, Fluokids and many, many more.
Armed with the musical taste, talent and tenacity to succeed, Harvard Bass is poised to
put his stamp on 2009. Add to that an impending European tour, remixes of DJ Orgasmic,
Acid Girls, Toxic Avenger and many more original tracks in the works, the sky is the
limit for how high he can go. It's as simple as that.
