In the international super-dj stakes, Dimitri (1967) is up there
with the best of them. In 1996, he was voted #8 in the
highly regarded Muzik Magazine's International DJ of the Year
Dimitri starts his musical explorations at the tender age of 16,
mixing funk and hip hop on a Dutch radio station. In 1988, right when
the second Summer of Love breaks out, he makes his first appearances
at Holland's world wide renowned temple of house, RoXY, where he starts
his own Friday club night in 1990, seeing cues at the door stretching
as far as 100 metres. He steadily makes a name for himself on an international
level, his specific DJ-ing style being best described as bringing
spirituality trough technology. Dimitri's slamming beats and the strong
melodies he plays always make the difference.
Since 1991, Dimitri has mixed, remixed and recorded for labels
such as Go!Bang, Outland, Spiritual, I.C.U (USA) and his own label,
Be.S.T (Beautiful Soul Techno), supplying many a single mix and more
than a dozen DJ mix albums. He pioneered his Be.S.T - sound very successfully
at his own Thursday night club, "Hi-Tech Soul Movement" at RoXY.
Over the years Dimitri has played in numberous clubs and festivals
in the Netherlands (such as Chemistry, MTC, New Frontier, Lowland
and Dance Valley). He has hosted a monthly club night at New York's
Twilo Club and played in Europe's hottest clubs like Fuse in Brussels,
Rex in Paris, Space on Ibiza, Haoman in Jerusalem, Static Sound in
Madrid, Taste in Edinburg and many more. He has been touring extensively
throughout every single state of North America, leaving behind impeccable
impressions wherever he plays, as well as his regular visits to
England (Club UK/The End/Ministry of Sound) and the rest of Europe,
Australia and Asia.
He also spun on special occasions like the Heineken Horizons 1998
in Amsterdam, Het Bal (1997)in Amsterdam, the World Expo 1998 in Lisbon
and the prestigious Heineken Night Live 1999 at the Ahoy venue in
Amsterdam, where he performed in cooperation with Hubert Jan Hubeek
a self-written piece together with the 76-piece Symphonic Orchestra,
accompanied by the images of VJ 00Kaap.
Together with DJ's 100% Isis and Angelo and VJ 00Kaap
he started a new Sunday evening at Amsterdam's famous Supperclub.
State of Bliss was an immediate success and will be celebrating its
first year anniversary very soon. After the RoXY burned down the Hi-Tech
Soul Movement found a new home at the new Amsterdam club MORE, where
it runs again every Thursday night. Dimitri is accompanied there by
DJ's Angelo and Djul'z and guest dj's from all over the world, bringing
his own beautiful soul techno to the music lovers again.
His most recent project is HI&LO (2000) together with computer artist
and VJ Danielle Kwaaitaal. They had an exhibition in the Art Factory
in Tokyo and performed together at the Golden Horse Filmfestival in
Taipei. The show also ran in the Amsterdam Torch Gallery and will
be continued throughout Europe.
