Renato Ratier has been a pivotal figure in Brazil‘s electronic music scene. In the 2000s, he opened D-Edge in São Paulo, a club that has since become one of South America’s stand-out venues, while on the production side, he has releases on the likes of Get Physical, Gigolo, Kompakt, Light My Fire and No.19 Music under his belt.

Currently, he’s a partner and resident DJ at Warung Beach Club in Santa Catarina and Berlin’s Holzmarkt, while he also operates the Ratier clothing label, the Bossa music studio and restaurant in São Paulo, and helped develop the Surreal Park superclub in Camboriú, located in the south of Brazil.

In December he released his latest album, Ritual, under his Ratier moniker, which was recorded in Dolby Atmos and showcases his upfront tech house style.

For 909originals’ #MyRecordBag feature, we asked Renato to share his top D-Edge club classics, from the 20 or so years of the club’s history.
