I can make a whole room fall in love with music. DJ-ing is not about choosing a few tunes; it's about generating shared moods and understanding the feelings of a group of people, directing them to a better place. Basically, my records create rituals of spiritual communion that can be the most powerful events in people's lives. I'm never trying to be better than everyone else, just better than myself. It's not just for the love of music; it's an exquisite passion that goes far beyond liking.

In 1988 Dimitri obtains his first residency at club Richter in Amsterdam and starts spinning at the legendary RoXY. He is one of the first DJs to mix a house record with breakbeats or drum ‘n bass: not only mixing those two records together by tempo and rhythm but also just by melody or tune/pitch, creating real-time compositions, which was groundbreaking at that time. By 1991 he spins at all the major (warehouse) parties in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Italy. He releases his first record and starts his own label Be.S.T. (Beautiful Soul Techno). From 1992 onwards he continues to take over the club world with gigs from Tokyo to Australia, Paris to Peru and residences at Twilo in New York and Ibiza. He starts his famous ‘Hi-Tech Soul Movement’ club night in RoXY on Thursday nights. Dimitri takes a 3-year sabbatical in 2007 (after playing non-stop for 23 years), trading the club scene for life on a farm and voluntary work with children with learning disabilities. In 2010, he returns with a residency at Club Trouw in Amsterdam, one of the best dance venues in Europe. In 2013, he suffers from a life-threatening bacterial infection, but is back at the decks at Club Trouw in only 5 months, proving that music has the power to heal, one of his strong inner beliefs. Today Dimitri still plays in clubs and at festivals all over Europe. At Thuishaven, the number one venue in Amsterdam, Dimitri finds his new residency for his famous 10 hrs DJ sets. As a producer, Dimitri is always working on new music, his own typical Hi-Tech Soul sound. He releases on labels like Planet E-communications, KMS Records and Metrohm.
Growing up going to the first raves in the ‘90s and listening to tapes with Chicago house and Detroit techno resulted in a big love for dance music that’s still present up until today. Always looking for cool tracks, listening for nights in a row and playing music for friends when two years ago the time came to step out of the living room and to take place behind the desks for a bigger audience. My style can best be described as warm, deep, melodic and always based on an elegant groove. In my sets, I love to create a flow and generate a vibe of energy and unity.
