DJ Ruthless Ramsey / Advisor, Resident DJ

So you want to know who DJ RUTHLESS RAMSEY IS!

Born in Minneapolis, this Arizona DJ appropriately coined “CAPTAIN CASSETTE” and the “THE KING OF THE CASSETTE” has skyrocketed to international acclaim. At the age of 7, DJ RUTHLESS RAMSEY began experimenting with the dual cassettes. Due partly to necessity from poor living conditions and mostly through a divine calling, he created something many have tried to imitate but none have been able to emulate! DJ RUTHLESS RAMSEY has been the topic of many news outlets such as FOX, disc jockey 101, and the DJ TIMES. Now sharing the stage with Turntable legends like DJ JAZZY JEFF, DJ QBERT, Z-TRIP and many other’s DJ RUTHLESS RAMSEY is primed to make his mark in a cassette mixing genre he created!


Valley teacher has “twist” on turntables

If you think DJ-ing is “old school,” then meet the only DJ in the world who spins with cassette tapes and boom boxes! He’s inspiring his Scottsdale music students with the unique talent, which he created and discovered at 7 years old when a boom box was all his family could afford.

This may be the ultimate #throwbackthursday story.
