Inspired by the likes of Armand Van Helden, Erick Morillo, Carl Cox and Tiga, he worked his way up to becoming a regular fixture as a DJ on the local club circuit, eventually launched his own successful series of afterhours parties that rocked into the early hours for 8 memorable years. At the same time he was building a loyal and enthusiastic following on Soundcloud, thanks to his regular mix series. To date, Ryan’s racked up over 4 million plays on the platform. It wasn’t long before Ryan was noticed and head-hunted up for prestigious, high-profile gigs at venues such as Fire and Ministry of Sound in London, with a Sankeys Ibiza residency in both 2014 and 2015 cementing his status as the new kid on the block and the one to watch. He continued to work on his productions, sending demos out to everyone he knew as well as working with fellow Yorkshireman and songwriter After 6. DJ Cameo was the first to pick up on the first fruits of that collaboration ‘Trust Me’, playing it on his BBC Radio 1 show; it was at this point that Danny Howard first heard the track whilst driving to gig. He rushed to his laptop to look it up and found that Ryan had already emailed him the demo, and ‘Trust Me’ became one of the first new signings to the esteemed dance selector’s new Nothing Else Matters imprint. With gigs picking up and the support of some of the most respected names in dance music, it looks like 2016 is going to be a big year for Ryan Blyth.
