Mr Doris represents the new wave of musical expansion in Ibiza, holding down varied residencies around the island, from iconic bars like Km5 and The Rock Bar to the biggest clubs including Pacha and Space, where he hosts his weekly After Dark events. Expect music without borders: hip hop, funk, soul, jazz, latin, disco, drum & bass, afrobeat, house, electro, reggae, dubstep, rhythm & blues and ska. In other words, good, varied, soulful sounds!
In the studio Mr Doris is as flexible as he is behind the turntables, with productions taking in genres ranging from downtempo beats and hip hop to house, drum & bass and everything in between. Releases can be found on labels such as Pauze, Brake Horse, Bang! and Record Kicks, while MTV and Red Bull have picked up Mr Doris’s recordings for recent advertising campaigns.
This year sees the release of newly recorded material, such as remixes for Rodney P (Tru Thoughts), Omegaman (Fort Knox) and The Baker Brothers (Record Kicks) plus freshly squeezed mix compilations for Pauze, Defected and El Chiringuito.
Expertly created, curated and hosted by Mr Doris, After Dark takes place every Sunday on the famous Sunset Terrace at We Love Space, Ibiza. In its three-year tenure, After Dark has introduced a new musical direction within a club that is consistently at the forefront of the global clubbing scene.
The line-up boasts an array of DJs, artists, audiovisual shows, B-Boys, MCs and live experiences like nothing the club (let alone the island!) has seen before, including Quantic, Jazzanova, DJ Yoda, The Correspondents, Krafty Kuts and A Skillz, DJ Vadim and The Nextmen. Until now, many of these artists wouldn’t have stepped foot inside an Ibiza nightclub, but today, Mr Doris, After Dark and We Love provide the perfect platform.
