Biography

Rowan Thorpe is a DJ (among other things) based in Athens, Greece. Lately he’s so busy with other things that the DJing is on a semi-hiatus. Hopefully not for too long…

He prefers a freestyle mix of genres, but is more influenced by Jazz/Funk/House. Even when playing a set of a specific genre, he strives to be as freestyle as constraints allow, and usually dislikes over-specific genre-titles. Rather than being a “House DJ” or “Techno DJ” he prefers being a “Whatever’s Good DJ”. Being an active dancer/choreographer/yoga-teacher, he has a strong sense of what makes bodies and minds move.

Rowan DJed since 2000, but actively collected “playing out” music and practised on mates’ decks since the early ’90s. He started by playing at informal parties in London/Lisbon/Athens and prefers party atmospheres to “trendy” atmospheres. He has DJed semi-regularly since 2004 in Athens (at bars/private-parties).
