SOUTHAMPTON'S home-grown house music producer Ronnie Spiteri is at the city's Switch nightclub on Saturday.

Having found his place on the scene through years of graft and a residency that saw him hone his inimitable house and techno-leaning sound and style to perfection, Ronnie Spiteri is a name on everyone’s lips for all the right reasons.

Fresh off the back of a summer residency for Do Not Sleep at the iconic Amnesia nightclub in Ibiza, Ronnie is releasing his debut album – True Music – this month. Dropping in two parts, the release is a true ‘tried and tested’ statement of intent that will cement Spiteri as one of the scene’s most exciting producers:

“I spent a long time touring South America at the start of 2018 – a place where dance music still feels true to its roots, and where the flashy side of the industry hasn’t quite taken over yet. It’s inspiring playing to club after club full of people who are there purely for the music, and as such – I came home and locked myself in the studio throughout winter, eager to turn this experience into something tangible.”

Hailing from Southampton, Ronnie has been immersed in house music for as long as he can remember. He first spun a record on his Dad’s Technics at the age of 11, by 14 he had recorded his first DJ set and by 16 he secured his first residency. He’s released music on some of the biggest labels in the business: Knee Deep In Sound, El Row, Viva Music and Truesoul to name a few, and also owns his own imprint, Kenja Records. On Saturday he’ll be hosting a Kenja Album Party at Southampton’s Switch Nightclub.
