  • Ralphi Rosario was a founding member of the influential Chicago DJ group Hot Mix 5. When this group formed in 1981 on radio station WBMX (now WVAZ), Rosario, the youngest member of the group, was still in high school. The Hot Mix 5 went on to become one of the leading forces in the early Chicago house music scene. Like other members of the group, Rosario eventually branched out into music production and remixing. His first release, made in collaboration with Vince Lawrence, was Sample That! in 1986 under the name Bang Orchestra. In 1987, his collaboration with Xaviera Gold, You Used to Hold Me, became a big hit for Rosario that was subsequently remixed and re-released several times. Rosario continues to work as a DJ and remixer and has released several full-length albums. He has remixed tracks by artists including INXS, the Shamen, Jomanda, Culture Beat, Gloria Estefan, Deee-Lite, Pet Shop Boys, Madonna, Michael Bublé, Mariah Carey, Ricky Martin, Kelly Clarkson, Pussycat Dolls, and Liza Fox. On December 1, 2011, it was announced that Rosario, with producing partner Abel Aguilera, received a 2012 Grammy nomination for the Rosabel Club Mix of the Rihanna track Only Girl (In the World). In 2015, his single featuring Julissa Veloz, La Jungla, gained many positive reviews and rose up Billboard Dance Chart to #5. La Jungla marked Rosario's sixth Top 10 Club Dance Chart hit as a solo artist In 2016, his collaboration with Abel Aguilera under their Rosabel alias, garnished Rosario another Billboard Dance Chart #1 single with "Livin'For Your Love" (Your Love). This is his third #1 single with Aguilera under Rosabel and features the vocals of singer Jeanie Tracy on Carrillo Music. (en)
  • Ralphi Rosario is een dj in de house-muziekscene. Hij werd in eerste instantie bekend als lid van de beroemde HotMix5; een groep radio-dj's die in Chicago aan de wieg heeft gestaan van de opkomst van House. Op het lokale radiostation WBMX was vanaf 1981 een groep dj's actief (van wisselende samenstelling) die, geïnspireerd door muziek uit de warehouse club waar dj Frankie Knuckles draaide, muziek mixten met een samensmelting van oude disco, funk, synthesizermuziek en speeches van onder anderen Martin Luther King. Deze mixprogramma's (de fridaynight jams en de saturday night live aint no jive chicago dance party) werden op hun hoogtepunt door ruim 1,5 miljoen mensen beluisterd. Van dit succes hebben een aantal van deze dj's handig gebruikgemaakt met het uitbrengen van hun eigen housetracks en/of mixen op vinyl. De bekendste uit dit rijtje dj's is Farley 'jackmaster' Funk geworden, maar ook Ralphi Rosario heeft in ieder geval één track op zijn naam staan die bekend geworden is in het internationale House circuit: you used to hold me. Deze track werd later nog enkele malen hergebruikt. In 1993 gebruikte de Italiaanse danceact Cappella (danceact) een sample uit het nummer voor zijn hit U got 2 know. In 2000 werd er door Scott and Leon een 2-stepversie van gemaakt. (nl)
