"Uniting Souls has contributed to setting standards as to what the Seattle electronic music community has to offer on a local and international level. It is because of organizations like Uniting Souls that Seattle is a favorite stop among touring electronic musicians.  With e-mail, smart phones, cheap flights, declining costs in music production, and the explosion of information technology, the face of the global music community is rapidly changing, but it is collectives like Uniting Souls that are evolving right alongside to help define and retain humanness in the often impersonal world we've created."

UNITING SOULS specializes in creating world-class events designed to build community & foster connection through musical and creative statement. Over the past two decades, with the support of many friends & family, Uniting Souls has solidified a reputation as a “Seattle house music institution” (The Stranger, 9/25/17).

In the early '90s, during his early college years in San Francisco, founder Ramiro Gutierrez drew inspiration from the communal and progressive elements which then permeated the Bay Area's electronic music culture. In 1995, with the help of a few friends, Ramiro began producing his own events, promoting community among an emerging group of artists and musicians, while showcasing their work. By 1997, Uniting Souls was born. Ramiro & crew worked actively through the power of house music, producing over 100 shows in SF through the late 90s, and several more in Los Angeles, quickly gaining a reputation for world-class events with cutting-edge music and down-to-earth, incredibly good vibes!

In the year 2000, Ramiro & Uniting Souls’ new home became Seattle. Since then, Ramiro & Uniting Souls have earned a reputation as "an inextinguishable accelerant of Seattle's house scene" (Seattle Weekly 10/29/03), producing over 400 events in the Northwest, featuring top-tier local, national, and international talent, keeping the vibe alive, and laying the foundation for a strong, art-minded community, one which continues to expand with the passing years. Uniting Souls co-produced annual showcase events & boat parties with Seattle's internationally-acclaimed Decibel Festival since its inception, as well as co-producing the Magnetic/Kinetic event series at The Pacific Science Center with Infinite Connections, and participating in favorite area festivals including Cascadia, Photosynthesis, and Hempfest. Uniting Souls’ monthly, Diggin’ Deep, is Seattle’s longest running monthly (9 years in 2018), and the highest-performing night at Seattle’s much-loved Monkey Loft. Our Aquafunk boat parties have become a sold-out summertime ritual on Seattle’s picturesque Lake Union & Lake Washington.

UNITING SOULS MUSIC is an independent record label based in Seattle, specializing in house music. Evolving from Uniting Souls the event production company, USM is fueled by our desire to showcase the talents of skilled producers within our friends & family, our local Pacific Northwest community, and in the electronic music community-at-large, whose vision, innovation, creative spirit, affinity for expression through dance music yearn to be shared with the rest of the world!

USM has featured several chart-topping releases, sales in over 70 countries & licensing deals with top labels & services, including Toolroom, Om, Balance, and NordicTrax. USM releases have been charted by the likes of Mark Knight, Green Velvet, Claude VonStroke, Mark Farina, DJ Heather, Catz’N'Dogz and many others.
