The way that energies are transformed on the dance-floor when Dimitri Nakov spins his records remains a mystery! Maybe it has to do with his vast years of experience, since the frenchman based in England from his early years started DJ'ing when he was only 14 years old, a time when dance music was still taking its first steps. Perhaps it is also true to say that some people have a greater sensibility for music – especially when they play what they truly love and dedicate themselves fully to it. Dimitri is one of those people who has this unique drive; he presents music according to his highest standards to an avid dance-floor.
The beginning of his music career goes way back to the start of house music in the ‘90’s, when he had the chance to work with two of the biggest names of the dance music scene: Roger Sanchez and Sasha. He worked with Roger Sanchez at Narcotic Records, a label responsible for many emblematic releases of the time. With Sasha, he performed warm-ups all over the globe, and so Dimitri started to define his calling for music and his place within the industry.
In a world where every conductor must orchestrate a symphony, Dimitri has become a master of conducing the crowd with perfection, distinguishing himself clearly from mediocrity. Whether it happens at a festival of twenty-thousand people or in a small niche venue with two hundred guests, the DJ has always had the ability to astound. In the not-so-distant past, whilst other main attractions were praised for their “live” performances, Dimitri became known for pleasing the crowd with a simple deck (or as he often does with two) owing nothing to the shows he used to share the prime time with. This was a fundamental phase when it came to getting to know the dance-floor like no other. Today, focusing on house music, which is what has always been his inspiration, the DJ leads a generation that stands for the groove and soul.
In 2010 Dimitri started making what would eventually become a main reference from the Ibiza summer: “Never Say Never”, hosted on what used to be a kiosk by the beach, Ushuaia. Today, Ushuaia Resort has grown and, with it, the emblematic sunset where Dimitri shares residency with partner and old time friend, Sasha, besides many other honourable guests. The DJ is also very prestigious in Brazil, where over the last six years he has grown with the local electronic music scene. In Brazil, his gigs as a resident of the Warung Tours, from the club known as the “temple” of electronic music stands out – along with his regular gigs in the beach club itself.
