The Sound of Porlwi 2015

The ‘Sound Of‘ crew takes us to the capital for their next episode, where at the heart of our rich cultural heritage, a sprawling metropolis is set to bring together music, art and technology in fairly seamless fashion.

The Rue du Vieux Conseil and its pavements are reminiscent of our colonial history, while its location next to the Port-Louis theatre served as a hotspot for cultural enthusiasts.Much of Sound Of’s success can be chalked up to the organisers ensuring that the community evolves into a well-educated music base. For this edition,our guest educationist is one of Europe’s finest tastemakers and the vanguard of DJ-ing at the moment. His eclectic style is loved all over the world, from Tokyo to London and from New York to Singapore. His name is linked with labels such as !K7Records, Stones Throw, Jazzy Sport, Blue Note and Brownswood Recordings (Gilles Peterson’s label).

Mighty Presents Dimitri From Paris

Mighty presents Dimitri From Paris on Saturday, June 20th with an opening set by special guest A. Lisbona.

// Dimitri From Paris //

Compared to his cohorts in the new wave of French dance music, Dimitri from Paris looks much farther afield for his influences. While both AIR and Daft Punk make much of their affection for the music of the 1970s (prog and disco, respectively), Monsieur Dimitri’s inspiration comes from the Continental jet-setting faux-jazz of the 1950s and early ’60s (exemplified by Dick Hyman, John Barry and Martin Denny), though the whole is updated by his long years of experience as a house DJ.

Based in France though he was born in Turkey, Dimitri entered the dance-music community during the mid-’80s by DJing at the French Radio 7. By 1990, his reputation had allowed him to record soundtracks for fashion barons like Chanel, Lagerfeld and Gaultier. He released two solo EPs during 1993-94, plus the mini-LP Esquisses, and contributed to the Yellow Productions compilation La Yellow 357. He also remixed hundreds of artists, including Björk, Brand New Heavies, The, New Order, James Brown and Etienne Daho. Dimitri’s debut album, “Sacrebleu”, appeared in late 1996, also on Yellow Productions. Named ‘Album of the Year’ by Mixmag, it sold several hundred thousand copies around the world and finally received an American release in early 1998. The 1997 mix album “Monsieur Dimitri’s De-Luxe House of Funk”, however, showed the Frenchman coming back to his house roots. In lieu of a second production album, he mixed several more sets before offering a second opus: “A Night at the Playboy Mansion” (2000), the BBE box set “Disco Forever” (2000), “After The Playboy Mansion” (2002), “International Flight” (2004) and “Cocktail Disco” (2007).  ”Cruising Attitude”, released in 2003, meant to be the sequel of “Sacrebleu” but without any use of samples. Pink Martini, Omar, and Daniel Wang were among the collaborators.
