Ron began his career as a local DJ in the early 1980s when he performed at his own dance club called â€˜The Bangin’ Enterprizeâ€™. After 2 years on Chicago’s south side Ronâ€™s star began to rise and he found himself opening for noted DJs including Lil’ Louis, Mike Dunn and the legendary Ron Hardy.
In 2000 friend and producer Mazi from Fiat Lux Records approached Ron to write and sing on a new track on the label. The track was Superfunkâ€™s â€˜Lucky Starâ€™ and it blew up worldwide following its release on Fiat Lux, being licensed to dozens of compilations and several labels including Rise and Virgin France. â€˜Lucky Starâ€™ eventually went on to sell over 3,000,000 copies.
Ron continued to produce 12â€ cuts. Some of his successes included â€˜Nothing But Funkâ€™, â€˜Take Me Upâ€™ – which Ron worked on with E-Smoove – and â€˜Iâ€™ll Be Thereâ€™, which was a collaboration with Kings Of The Underground. In 2001 Ron compiled and mixed the â€˜Sessions Volume 3â€™ compilation album, released on Strictly Hype Recordings. In 2002 Ron released â€˜Naturalâ€™ on Music 101 and he followed it up the next year with â€˜Sexy Thingâ€™ released on his own Body Music imprint. 2003 also the release of Hardsoulâ€™s â€˜Back Togetherâ€™, on which Ron contributed an outstanding vocal performance. The single became huge all over the world, becoming a WMC and Ibiza anthem and later appearing on dozens of compilations.
In 2004 Ron teamed up with Bob Sinclair to release â€˜World Of Love vs. Sexy Dancerâ€™ on Yellow Music. 2005 was one of Ronâ€™s busiest years, seeing him produce several cuts and remixes and contribute vocals on a raft of projects. On the remix front he put his touch to Soul Rebels and Lisa Millettâ€™s â€˜Iâ€™ll Be Goodâ€™, Ben Tomâ€™s â€˜African Musicâ€™, Bob Sinclairâ€™s â€˜Love Generationâ€™, Dawn Tallmanâ€™s â€˜You Are Whyâ€™, Melba Mooreâ€™s Soulfuric-released â€˜My Heart Belongs To Youâ€™ and produced a beautiful gospel-tinged mix of Jay-J and Charlene Mooreâ€™s â€˜With Himâ€™, which was released on Defected.
Ron Carrollâ€™s most recent superhit walking down the Street (“The Nike song”) was released via Sneakerz Muzik containing mixes from Fedde le Grand, Bart-B More, ErickE and RiskSoundSystem. In Holland the track soared, remaining in the national charts for 8 weeks. The track is also being released via Hedkandi in the UK, Germany via Tiger, France via Skorpio and USA via Ultra. A sure recipe for success.
