Villalobos began to play his music at parties while he was studying at university, but this was only for his own enjoyment. He started a label, Placid Flavour, in 1993 but this was unsuccessful. His first record was released on the German Playhouse label in 1994 and he began DJing as a professional in 1998.
This Friday, 9 November 2012, Ricardo Villalobos prepares to visit Switzerland at D! Club in Lausanne in a gig that will also feature Cadenza‘s Mirko Loko.
