Dimitri from Paris
Deserving of respect as one of France's leading House stylists alongside Daft Punk and Cassius, Turkish-born Dimitri is known for servicing international club-goers with body-slicking grooves. Acclaimed for his debut full-length Sacrebleu (1998) and the Playboy-endorsed Astralwerks mix for the label's Respect is Burning series, Dimitri from Paris takes to the decks with confidence and style. Typical Dimitri-produced tracks offer you something retro-disco-esque, irresistibly funky and packed with plenty of precoital anticipation. Each jazz-inflected floor-burner dons skimpy vocal clips, skin-revealing rhythms and lip-licking melodic loops. These stylish designs promise to keep the party moving in various directions, whether it be on the dancefloor, at the bar or even in the bedroom. Essential tunes for Hugh Hefner admirers and other hedonistic types.
