Dorian Evander, DJ & producer of 18 years old, was born in a family of musicians and remains since his birth, immersed on the field of the music, his father being an artistic director, festival organizer, and a famous classical musician in Rhône-Alpes. At the age of 6, Dorian comes to the Conservatoire* (french music school appellation) of Romans where he obtains later his musical certificate and the “Third Cycle” –level of instrument (guitar) – and F.M (Music Education in French “Formation Musicale”) with the congratulations of the jury. He’s passionate by electronic music and grows up with the sound of Superfunk, ATB, Fatboy Slim, Tiësto or David Guetta. When he was very young, Dorian enjoyed hosting parties with his parents, where he chains dancing tunes. People around him called him “DJ Dodo”. He fully acquires the rhythm and the notion of tonality which allows him to mix tunes for a better result and to be respectful towards the ears of the ears of the listener/dancer. He holds the absolute pitch which remains an unique quality for the musicians. So, he can deduce the best sequences possible with harmony. Between 2005 and 2009, he studies in the André Malraux Secondary School in the musical class (CHAM). Fond of cinema and media, then, he comes in the audiovisual section of the Camille Vernet High School in Valence to have his High Leaving Certificate in this field (promotion 2009 – 2012).

In 2010, he stops the Conservatoire* to devote to the detailed study of C.A.M’s softwares as a self-taught, a better deejing training with a Pioneer equipment, to the development of his others events-organizing projects as well as to follow his studies.

February 2011 sees the release of his next single “Fleeting Shadow which is more in a soft-House style. On April the 20th, he is live in the ‘free radio of Karel’ on Fun Radio for the promotion of his work. Two weeks later, he’s welcomed in the studio (Rue Bayard) in Paris by the whole team and Mico.

At the SUMMER DANCEFLOOR 2011, the “dancefloor event” of the summer, he mixes beside Mike Candys, Alan Pride and Benjamin Braxton on July with Fun Radio. Then on September 3rd, 2011, takes place the NAUTIC MIX PARTY II where Dorian mixes in front of 1.000 persons, beside Syskey and Jeremie Sax (partnership with NRJ).

At seventeen years old, he has the opportunity to mix at the great GALA DE L’ETUDIANT of Valence in the Parc des Expos on October 20th for the opening and the closing set in front of 3.000 persons.
