Rony Rex

Seagulls glide and squawk in the eastern wind as Rony climbs from the Gulf of Finland with his dear hobby horse flash unicorn named Snowball. This has pretty much nothing to do with the fact that Rony started DJ'ng as Rony Rex almost a decade ago. Since then, Rony has established himself as one of Finland's top dance music tastemakers with his eccentric performances, off-the-wall releases and collaborations with artists like Carla Monroe, GIRLI and TT The Artist. He’s also known for his sweaty club events, and a very own radio show currently airing on the Finnish BBC 1 equivalent YLEX.

Rony’s music is a bubbly, quirky and housey mix of influences coming together as something that is heavily club culture focused, but doesn’t sway away from flirting with pop and indie soundscapes. There must be something to it as Rony’s tunes have been picked up by brands like Yves Saint Laurent, Stella McCartney, Nickelodeon and many others on the regular. You might have also heard his tunes played out by artists like Diplo, Dillon Francis, Anna Lunoe and a plethora of other places like BBC, Triple J, and various SiriusXM shows.

So what’s next for Rony Rex? Well, there is this Direct Me EP rolling out throughout the summer and autumn as Rony makes his debut on a UK label Needwant – warming us up for the big 10-year celebration of his career in 2023.
