Resident DJ at Buddha Bar, Paris
Born on the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean, Ravin was brought up by a traditional Hindu family. He moved to France as a teenager where he developed his childhood passion: music. He began working in a music shop in Paris, which cultivated his interest in dance music and club culture. This explains his musical style - a mix of the eastern airs of his youth combined with the electronic sounds of his new home, Paris.
At the end of the 1980s, Ravin became resident DJ at the Rex, Boy and Bains Douches, where he immersed himself in the exciting high tech wave that would engulf the world.
The opening of Buddha Bar, Paris in 1997 marked a turning point in Ravin's musical direction. The magical atmosphere of this temple-like place harmonised perfectly with Ravin's personality and artistic taste. After more than a decade, Ravin still remains resident DJ at Buddha Bar Paris, and his growing international reputation has taken him to far off places where he regularly appears in some of the world's most cutting edge clubs. He has also played at Jean Paul Gauthier's Fashion Shows, private parties for Sting and for exclusive brands such as Bvlgari, Armani, and many more.
While continuing to develop his DJ career, Ravin is also increasingly interested in the art of remixing and producing, and he's now solicited as one of the music world's greatest talents. Ravin has produced many well-known compilation series: Buddha Bar, Siddhartha, Fashion TV Club Session, Clubbing with DJ Ravin, in addition to his latest significant and remarkable selection "Best of Ravin". Ravin gained a double gold disc as author of Buddha Bar III, VI, VII, IX and released Amnesty International with Frank Nigel to commemorate its 40th anniversary.
