Biography

DJing and producing is all about talent and personality and Ricky Stone has bags of both. His ability to connect with clubbers and bring dancefloors alive is truly outstanding. Originally from the ‘Steel City’ of Sheffield, Ricky rocked clubs and raves across the UK before continuing his rise in the east. Moving to Asia in 2002, he set up base in the pulsating city of Hong Kong and swiftly forged a bright future as the region’s most sought-after DJ. So when Sasha toured China for the first time in 2004, Ricky was the one chosen to accompany him, performing at every single show on his Involver tour. Fast forward a few months and DJ Magazine were documenting the scale of Ricky’s rise, as he became the very first Hong Kong/China-based Artist to break into their prestigious Top 100 DJs Poll. Voted # 48 in the world by masses of loyal supporters throughout Asia in 2005, he proceeded to climb eight places to # 40 in 2006 – and is currently on a roll as the poll’s highest ranked DJ based in Asia!
Creative and technical talent, a warm heart, and an undying dedication to dance music (not to mention years of hard work!) obviously go a long way to explaining Ricky’s ascent. As a passionate, party-hungry teenager, he felt the allure of acid house music soon after leaving school and instinctively took to the decks. He started DJing whenever and wherever he could, from local pirate radio stations to underground blues bars. Fully immersed in and inspired by UK club culture throughout the sensational 90s (especially at Shelley’s in Stoke-on-Trent), he went on to play at Fantazia, Eclipse, Ministry of Sound, and The Cross, as well as at clubs across Europe.
