It’s been another hectic summer season of DJ’ing for Ibiza resident Dimitri Nakov. Having worked hard with his good friend Sasha to establish their superb parties at Kumharas, the positive vibes have been flowing freely. A blueprint for this year’s success story was developed at Dimitri’s extended Saturday sessions at the Sunset Ashram hotspot that has been established as one of the island’s best chilled destinations over the past years. Then there’s his regular Tuesday night mix show on the island’s finest radio station – Ibiza Global Radio.
Its wonder then that Dimitri has found time to get creative in the studio, but with a steady stream of EPs and remixes set to be unveiled over the coming months, his dedication will add even more weight to his reputation as being one of the finest DJ/Producers on the scene today.
Having left London in for the more exotic climate of Brazil, Dimitri built a very strong reputation and established himself over a relentless 7 years of non-stop touring, playing (literally) every main event both there and also increasingly in Japan, Australia, Mexico… and across Europe.
In Japan he helped set up Big Beach Tokyo. Fat Boy Slim played most, hence the name, along with Sasha, Chemical Brothers, Groove Armada, Carl Cox and more. Ahead of the curve, they also featured a DC10 stage.
When the giant rave scene reached its peak, Dimitri moved over to the clubs, becoming a resident at Brazil’s legendary Warung Club, playing highly influential extended sets, and building his strong reputation across the south of this large country, featuring at Cocoon parties, and alongside Marco Carola, Villalobos, Jamie Jones, and many more.
By 2009, a move back to Europe beckoned, and the following summer Dimitri started Never Say Never at what was originally the Ushuaia Beach Club (now Hotel), Ibiza, with Sasha. The event was a huge success and over 4 summer seasons, the duo brought in many excellent acts that would not normally play there. Dimitri also masterminded the legendary after parties, filling the venue like never before, bringing and playing alongside guests such as Steve Bug, Ame, Steve Lawler, Booka Shade, Sneak, Sasha, DJ Three, Cassy, Teifschwarz… The full list is almost endless, with most coming to play the parties for free, such was their reputation as being the best on the island.
When the summer season in the Northern hemisphere ends, Dimitri heads South for his second summer of the year, returning to Brazil….
