Slide presents DIMITRI FROM PARIS – win tickets!

After a great summer on the terrace with the likes of Greg Wilson, Radio Slave, Aeroplane, Ralph Lawson and Felix+Al Hot Chip, Slide mark their first party of the autumn months with the focus back on the club room, welcoming a very special guest make his Slide debut, the legendary DIMITRI FROM PARIS. This is a very rare opportunity to see Dimitri in such a small London space, & only his 2nd appearance in the capital this year.

As the French Ambassador of stylish club sounds, Dimitri from Paris is everything his nation could be proud of: a DJ, producer, & remixer of the highest standard, and a stylish snake-hipped pin-up with French reserve.

In 2005 the French government awarded him the very official rank of Knight of the Arts and Letters. Along with Air and Cassius he was the first artist from the Electronica field to be given such a distinction.

His musical influences are deeply rooted in 70s Funk and Disco sounds that spawned today’s House music but also original soundtracks from 50’s and 60’s cult movies. With such a large mix, Dimitri remains of one of club lands most empathic and most unpredictable DJs. Playing across genres and tempos his first goal is to share his love for music while moving your mind, body and soul.

Dimitri’s DJing career started in the late 80’s on the Parisian pirate radio scene. Moving to an official and nationwide radio he became the very first DJ to pioneer house music all over France. His mix show was first of its kind and ran over 10 years until 1998 making him a cult figure with dance music connoisseurs.

Thanks to his radio exposure where he could showcase his personal edits he turned the heads of record labels. Dimitri remixed hundreds of artists as diverse Björk, the Cardigans, James Brown, New Order and Quincy Jones. It wasn’t until 1997 however, that he became world famous with the release of his first album “Sacrebleu” on Bob Sinclar’s Yellow Productions label. A blend of diverse influences including original film soundtracks, jazzy samba and organic house. “Sacrebleu” sold several hundred thousand copies and was named one of the Ten Top Albums Of The Year by Mixmag.

In the late 90’s Dimitri followed the album’s success with several compilations including the cult “Deluxe House of Funk” and the infamous “A Night At The Playboy Mansion” (Virgin) lately charted again in Mixmag’s top 100 of best compilations ever.

A second artist album, “Cruising Attitude” was released in 2004 to be closely followed by his first outing on UK’s premier dance music label Defected: “Dimitri from Paris In the House”.

Over the course of his 30 years career our man from Paris has sold more than a million copies of his eclectic outings. Without any marketing budgets, and mostly on indie labels.

This is an incredibly rare opportunity to catch DFP in such a small space in London. Supporting Dimitri are residents Justin Winks (Casio Social Club), Henry Greenwood, Em Williams and more.
