Rony Rex has risen to the top the old school way: rather than putting out big tunes, he has become a headliner just off the back of his essential DJ skills. It is his slick selections, technical prowess and unrivalled ability to connect with crowds that takes him around the world from Tunisia to Thailand, England to Egypt on a regular basis, next to the likes of greats like Armand Van Helden or Mark Knight, Steve Angello or Oliver Heldens.
To hear the musically open-minded Rony in the club—or live streamed from a waterfall, a plane in flight, a cave, floating on the Baltic sea or outside in the bracing Nordic winter, as he does each month in conjunction with Sennheiser—is to be taken on a ride. Working closely with Red Bull, he hosts his own DJ workshops and puts on special events such as a 24-hour set. The Finnish Pioneer DJ ambassador also runs an influential radio show on national radio station YleX and produces club events, such as Talli and Lasermehu. As a result of all this, his social media following is naturally vast, with more than 20,000 people hanging on across all the different networks.
This multi award winning DJ is now embarking on the next chapter as he started to release music last year on Finnish powerhouse Youth Control. Rony’s debut single Sticky Fingers went straight to #1 on the iTunes Finnish Chart few days after it came out. Soon after that it hit #4 in the Spotify Viral Chart and went on to be a big tune for the likes of tastemakers Diplo, Felix Da Housecat and Don Diablo. Sticky Fingers was quickly followed by F*cked It Up, a three track EP featuring indie-pop outfit LCMDF that became even a bigger success, gathering radio play and widespread support around the globe. As such, the world is now awaiting his next move, and finally they will get what they’ve been waiting for: a new double single, Lift Yo Legs, coming up on Youth Control in March 2018.
