What do Ibiza Rocks, Wax:On, Metropolis and Reclaim The Dance Floor all have in common? The cream of international DJ line-ups? Legendary tales of debauchery? A clutch of awards and critical acclaim? Yes, yes, and yes, and one more important ingredient; genre-hopping resident and rapidly rising UK producer/DJ talent, Doorly.
Presiding over an electronic melting pot of techno, electro, Futureg Garage, drum’n’bass and dubstep doused with hip-hop and splashes of indie; Doorly’s movement behind the decks is relentless. Scratching and splicing riffs, loops, beats and bass to form a sonically seamless, mash-up masterpiece as seen on his recent Radio 1 mini-mix for Annie Mac; it’s understandable that Doorly is often described as ‘an old school block party DJ using new school technology’.
His first big break came in April 2008, when Doorly was invited by Pete Tong to spin live on BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix as part of the ‘In New DJs We Trust’ Introducing Tour, leading to spots on the Radio One Stage at Creamfields and the Radio One Ibiza Weekend where he has hosted the main stage 2 years running.
