Dimitri from Paris

Dimitri from Paris will always take you on a cruise, regardless if it's an excursion into the world of House, or a trip down Memory Lane to the days of Disco!
No matter what - he will always make you surprised by his twist and turns.
In this interview you'll get to meet the DJ, Remixer, Artist and Producer, you'll also get to know how Disco music has influenced his life.
So keep reading on, 'cause this is...

Dimitri from Paris!

Dimitri Dimitri Y. is more known as Dimitri from Paris in the world of music. His name is always said with great respect and he's a DJ, remixer, artist, writer and producer with one foot in the classic Disco, Funk and Jazz music and the other in the latest House and Dance music. He blends the old and new together in a seamless mix of beautiful sounds that moves everyone in one way or another.
Dimitri, or 'Dim' as he and his friends use to call him, was born in Istanbul, Turkey - by Greek parents - in October 1963. At the age of 3 he and his family moved to France and Paris, where he grew up and where he have lived his whole life and that's how his name came about - 'Dimitri from Paris'.

As this web-page is dedicated to Disco, let's jump into that subject...
Dimitri, When did your great interest for Disco music start?
"In the 80s when I started buying records I used to be into Funk music, that got me into the early Rap records when they had live Disco backing. At the time it was very hard to hear good American Disco in France, it was mostly Euro stuff that I didn't like much. It was only after the first House records in 86 that I discovered black American Disco, which was the basis of that music. You have to imagine there was no internet at the time, it was very difficult to get any information nor even hear proper Disco in France outside of the major cheesy radio hits."
Was there anything special with Disco that attracted you?
"I liked the urgency of the beat, the busy orchestration, the stripped down parts and breaks with all the added dubby effects. The more breakdowns a track would have the more I'd like it!"
Disco Forever mixed by Dimitri from Paris Some of Dim's favorite Disco tracks and Latin Disco grooves he put together in the triple CD compilation Disco Forever in the first year of the new millennium. The first CD is one long wonderful DJ mix by Dim, while the other two CD's give you all the tracks in their full length versions, plus a few songs that never made it into the mix.
Among the tracks and acts you find classics like "I Got A Thing" by Silver, Platinum & Gold, Universal Robot Band's "Barely Breaking Even", "Corazon" by LTG Exchange and "We're On Our Way Home" by Brainstorm, among other great tracks from Two Man Sound, Jeanne Napoli, D.C. LaRue, Love Committee, Eastside Connection and several others.

Personally, I think you and Dave Lee [more known as Joey Negro] are the most influential DJ's/remixers when it comes to Disco music today and I love both of your work. But I think there's a slight difference in the kind of Disco each of you put on your compilations. I think your tracks often have a more Latin touch and maybe also a little more 'Big Band' feel. Something your new BBE compilation Cocktail Disco proves. Do you think I'm right, or how would you describe your different 'Disco styles'?
"I have a very soft spot for big orchestras indeed, and the Philadelphia sound is what I like best. I also like things to be very flamboyant, so is Latin Disco. My favorite time frame for disco is '76 to '79. Dave seems to be into slightly later stuff, more Boogie than Disco. He often tells me my taste in Disco is very gay, which I 100% agree, I wonder why he has a problem with that. ;)"
Cocktail Disco Can you describe the thoughts you had when creating 'Cocktail Disco'?
"I have been coming across some of these records that had this kind of Broadway musical feel over the years, and thought they had a distinctive vibe. They were not that common, and I started looking for more with the idea of one day compiling them, as no one seemed to be that much interested in that sound. We'll see what will happen now."
I totally respect and admire your knowledge in Disco music. It's outstanding. I think I've heard quite a lot, but still your compilations always introduce me to completely "new" stuff. How do you find all those great Disco tunes?
"I'm also surprised to find stuff I never heard of that is also good! It takes a lot of guessing, listening in record stores and half decent records gathering dust in my studio. It turns out a lot of records in the Cocktail Disco compilation I found in stores often visited by Disco collectors, and that have been standing there for a while before I picked them. So I can say it's also a matter of taste."
Dim as a Disco conductor Cocktail Disco really takes you back to legendary 50's/60's Hollywood movies with big orchestras playing in posh restaurants and bars, or in luxury Caribbean cruise ships, but with a clear Disco touch (flavored with Latin rhythms). The earlier years of Disco was the time of the orchestral Disco music and Dimitri has managed to pick the gems in this fairly overlooked genre of Disco. You'll get 'Big Band' Disco versions of several legendary masterpieces like Gershwin's "Summertime", "the Girl from Ipanema" (Produced by Vince Montana Jr), "Show You the Way To Go" (Written by Gamble & Huff) and "C'est Si Bon". Some of my favorite tracks from the double CD are, beside the already mentioned ones, the 1975 Ritchie Family track "Frenesi", which is a very early Jacques Morali & Henri Belolo tune, along with Ray Martinez' "Lady of the Night", Ms Victoria Burns' "Never Too Late" and "the Joy of You" by Paul Mauriat Plus (a Funky Latin gem which I found I had in my collection, but had overlooked).

the Kings of Disco - Joey Negro and Dimitri from Paris

Kings of Disco - Dimitri from Paris and Joey Negro In late 2004, the two Masters of Disco, Dimitri from Paris and Joey Negro, joined forces and released a double CD with some of their favorite obscure Disco tunes - the Kings of Disco CD.
Both guys made one CD each and ALL of these tracks really are obscure, I had only heard a handful of them before...
Dimitri starts out his CD with a die-hard classic by Derrick Harriott and follows up with Vince Montana Jr.'s act Goody Goody, followed by Lime, Macho and others to end with Risco Connection. Most of the tracks come in his own edited versions.
Joey starts by 'rolling a joint' and then throws in some UK acts like Spandau Ballet and Yazoo. He also takes you 'Skate dancing' and longing for 'that Friday pay' before rounding it off by a classic track by Touch.
Just like Dim, many of Joey's tracks also came in his own re-edited versions.
So, Is there any 'competition' between you and Dave? I know you earlier used to compete when buying rare records on e-bay before you knew each other...
"No more competition, I leave him the slappy bass happy records, while he leaves the kitschy and cheesy ones to me."
Hahaha! Great deal!
In 2006 Dimitri teamed up with Japanese HipHop producer and DJ - DJ Muro, for the Super Disco Friends CD.
Super Disco Friends mixed by Dimitri from Paris and DJ Muro In this double CD, Dim mixed the first CD which was labeled - the Underdogs. That's just what you get, underrated tracks that never got the attention they could have. It's a more Funky-Disco tone of these tracks than what we're usually used to when seeing Dim's name on a CD. Some of my favorites from the Dim CD are; "Are You Ready" by Delilah, "Boogie to the Bop" by Mantus (the first act I ever interviewed for Disco-Disco.com), Paul Cacia's "Saved By Your Love" and WAR's "Good Good Feeling" (among others).
The DJ Muro CD is labeled - the Foundation. These tracks are more known than the Dim ones, and form a Funky foundation on which DJ Muro build his grooves. In the Muro set you find classics like "Pussy footer" by Jackie Robinson, along with "Try It Out" by Gino Soccio, Chantal Curtis' "Get Another Love" and Avonn's sought for "Everybody Get Down".

Super Disco Friends - DJ Muro and Dimitri from Paris

As mentioned above, Dimitri likes to create his own edits or remixes of Disco classics. I had to know more on how it started and so on... When did you do your first edit/remix? And, Do you recall which song?
"My first edit must have been in '83/'84, it was D-Train's 'Your the One For Me'. I was really impressed by the fact the B-side had different dubbier parts than the A-side vocal. So I joined both versions on my cassette deck to an awfully boring 14 minutes+ 'edit'..."
What would you say drives you to create your own edits/remixes of these songs? I think you do a lovely work and always manage to keep the magic of the original...
Dimitri "Sometimes I feel there's something I could do for me to like a song better, so it always starts as a personal thing. I always did my edits for me, and I tend to go back to them after each play to fine tune things. Once an edit gets regular plays in my sets, that's when I think about putting it out.
I try making a point for people not to figure out how I've edited something, my work should complement the song, not show off, and get into its way.
In the 80's I used to be a fan of Arthur Baker and the Latin Rascals. I would cut up a song with tons of machine gun style edits and it would take me weeks on my reel-to-reel. I got a little bit wiser with age and also DJ'ing experience, as I found too many demonstrative edits would break the natural flow of a song.
I still occasionally like cutting up the odd song when there are only a few bars in it that I really like, with a computer it's much more fast and fun to do."

So, Which programs and equipment do you use when creating your edits/remixes?
"I think I must have used every possible technique over the years!!! Started with manual pause button cassette editing, reel-to-reel, hardware disk recorders, and now computer based editing.
My software of choice is Pro Tools, I find it the most precise one."

Beside editing Disco classics Dim has also remixed newer acts like; Etienne Daho, the Cardigans, M.A.W, as well as classic acts like James Brown and Quincy Jones.
You have been remixing various acts, everything from Björk to Brand New Heavies and New Order... Quite different types of acts. Would you say there's something you add to all of them that can make people hear that it's a 'Dimitri from Paris' remix?
"Hard to say, again I don't try to lay my sound over someone else's, but rather make a song I have accepted to be more danceable, The end result always varies, and is inspired by the raw material I have to work with.
Again as with edits, I respect the original, and try to take it to another level without breaking its essence."

Dimitri playing cards Dim's list of remixes is TOO long to mention here, but to give you an idea on some of his works, I can mention stuff like; Björk's "Human Behaviour", Stardust's "Music Sounds Better", Coldcut feat. Lisa Stansfield's "People Hold On", Swedish act the Cardigans' "Erase / Rewind" and Stetsasonic's "Talkin' All That Jazz" and LOTS of others. See Dim's own favorite remixes below...
Besides these he has also remixed many many Disco classics, for example he made many remixes for UK's DMC (Disco Mix Club - DJ Remix Service) during 1990-1993, among those you find "Last Night A DJ Saved My Life" by Indeep, "Spacer" by Sheila & B. Devotion, "You're the one for me" by D Train, ""Let no man put asunder" by First Choice and "Weekend" by Class Action, but the list goes on and is still counting...
Worth noting is also that it wasn't until around 1994 Dim changed his name to 'Dimitri from Paris', prior to that he simply just called himself - Dimitri. So you will find many earlier remixes credited to just 'Dimitri'.

Dimitri from Paris with Disco wand

Already at a young age Dimitri discovered music and he early became a 'home DJ', making tapes by cut and paste music he had recorded from radio and from records. Eventually this led to a career as a DJ and things really started to hit off for the young Dim when he became a Radio Jock at the French Radio 7, from there he moved on to Skyrock to finally end up at Europe's largest Radio network - NRJ in 1987. At NRJ he created a very successful House Music show which he ran until 1998.
Beside the radio show, he still kept him busy with his edits/remixes, recording sessions and DJ'ing all over the globe.
Tell me about your DJ'ing, what inspired you to become a DJ? Was it something you always wanted to do, or did it more or less just "happen"?
close up of Dimitri from Paris "It sort of happened yes. I first wanted to be a remixer, but tried DJ'ing in clubs as a means to pay for my records, at the time a Club DJ had to play the club's records, and didn't have the freedom to bring his own music. It wasn't what I wanted, and I started DJ'ing at radio stations also to showcase my edits, hoping a producer would spot me and give me remix work, which in the end happened! It was only after 8 years of radio shows that I started being asked to DJ in clubs, and I got hooked up very quickly to it."
Tell me, When did you start DJ'ing? Which was your first gig?
"I think I had my first club gig in 84, like I said above it wasn't very gratifying, I even had to go record shopping with the owner! Since he was buying, he would not always accept my record choices, and then in the club he'd come to the booth and complain about what I was playing... I didn't last very long there, but it was me who did quit!"
You have also been a Radio DJ, which do you prefer - Radio or Club DJ'ing?
"It goes in cycles, in the 80's I had more freedom on the radio, the 90's was rather the opposite! Nowadays internet radio is so widespread that you can have freedom again, and the people in clubs seem to always want the same format of things. So who knows maybe I can go back to do some podcasting!"
Please do... Have you been resident DJ of any clubs? Which clubs?
"Other than that first club where I stayed 2 months, not really!"
OK, Have you got any favorite clubs which you just love to play and why? Would you say there is a different crowd in each of the clubs? I.e. Are there songs that are floor fillers in one club that don't work in another club?
Dimitri spinning "I like playing in Tokyo clubs like Loop or Yellow, people seem to go there as in a temple, they are very devoted to the DJ they choose to hear. Usually anything that is in my records is a big hit, often - 'the more obscure the better' too!"
But what do you think made you one of the hottest and most wanted DJ's? I mean, even Madonna handpicked you to open up her show in Paris. Do you think you have any specific skills, special techniques or something that has made you what you are today?
"I used to think technique is the most important thing in DJ'ing, but I now feel it's all in the selection and timing. Technique should be good enough so you can make smooth transitions for dancers but shouldn't get in the way of a good vibe. Too many DJs seem to let their programming dictated by formats and BPM's. Perfectly mixed records can soon become very boring if they end up sounding like one never ending track..."

Dimitri from Paris - Playboy bunny

It's also told that Playboy's Hugh Heffner ordered a mixed tape by you for one of his parties and the result was A Night At the Playboy Mansion. Is that correct or how did that come about?
"Not exactly. Playboy offered me and Respect (3 Parisian party promoters) to throw a party at the Playboy Mansion, we came up with idea of making a dedicated CD so we'd have something special to celebrate and voila!"
A Night at the Playboy Mansion mixed by Dimitri from Paris A Night At The Playboy Mansion was released in the spring of 2000 and all the tracks of the CD are segued together by Dimitri into a 76 minutes long Soulful Disco-Jazz House trip. Several of the tracks are Dim's own re-edits of classics by the Originals, Atmosfear and Ashford & Simpson. As always with Dim's collections there are many, yet great, tracks you've never heard before, but it's a mix of new and old in the typical Dimitri from Paris spirit. Just to segue Cerrone with the Joey Negro act, the Sunburst Band kind of says it all...
After the Playboy Mansion mixed by Dimitri from Paris The success of the first Playboy CD raised the demand for a follow up and in February of 2002 - the After the Playboy Mansion CD - was released. In this double CD Dim picks up where 'A night...' left off. The first disc goes under the name 'Laidback', which shows in the little slower tempo [BPM - Beats Per Minute] of the songs, as well as being a disc you could just as easily just sit back, relax and enjoy listening to, as get on your feet and dance to. The Laidback CD include gems from Tata Vega, Imagination, Grace Jones, Rinder & Lewis and the Larry Levan remix of Gwen Guthrie's "Peanut Butter", among others.
The second CD is named 'Uplifting' and right away the tempo speeds up and the beat has become more distinct. There are also more Latin and Jazz influences and we also get a song all sung in Swedish, but it still keep the vibe alive which makes it work. Music includes classic acts like Chaka Khan who has teamed up with De La Soul, Linda Clifford and Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes.
Dimitri from Paris - Return to the Playboy Mansion In April 2008 my petition for a third CD in the Playboy Mansion series was fulfilled when Defected released the CD Dimitri from Paris Return to the Playboy Mansion.
Once again our Disco Playboy make Playmate Bunnies (and all others) shake their ears and tails to the great music he had put together for Hugh and the guests of his Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles.
Dimitri poolside with Playmates The first disc is labelled Partytime and is just that... A wonderful mix of dance grooves and classic Disco tunes. Just by starting out with Jamiroquai's "Cosmic Girl" sets the uplifting mood that is kept over the full CD when the journey travels by acts like Incognito, Lorraine Johnson, Musique, Gary's Gang, Don Ray and even Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terell's marvelous "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" in a Dimitri re-edit.
The second disc is called Sexytime and the tempo is brought down a bit and for all lovers Dim provides us with a mixed selection of sexy Soulful beats by Barry White, Teddy Pendergrass, Change, Melba Moore, Amii Stewart, France Joli and Brand New Heavies, among others.
There's also a Limited Edition release which includes Playmate postcards, stickers and a booklet with info and comments by Dim himself...

Dimitri playing pool with Bunnies

When you DJ, What do you prefer to play; Vinyl, CD's or computer? And why?
"CDs allow me to have 50 times more songs at hand than vinyl, so I moved to that after digitizing big chunks of my collection. I'm looking at computer DJ'ing, but it doesn't offer me what I need in terms of sound tweaking yet, for me to accept looking at one single thing all night."
How would you describe your DJ playing style? Are there any "trademarks" for a Dim session?
"Trademarks? You'll get lots of Disco edits played in between quite musical House stuff, and hopefully if crowd accepts it, some lower tempo variations!"
Do you remember or can you tell which was your best gig ever?
"The Magic Sessions in WMC in 2001, magic indeed, and a 20 minute standing ovation while the cops were trying to shut the place down!"

Dimitri from Paris - Passionate Disco lover As the passionate collector and connoisseur Dimitri is, he must have tons of records. Besides he always tries to find new stuff as he mentioned earlier, something that add up to the collection. Let's talk about that...
I guess you must have a MASSIVE records collection, do you know how much records you own? Do you keep everything you buy and receive?
"No, I have no idea how many I have, I stopped counting ages ago. I tend to throw things out every 5 years, or when I move house."
That's probably wise, since I'm sure Dim otherwise could fill a normal home with records.
As you know, my web-page is Disco oriented, could you name some of your all time favorite Disco songs for the viewers of Disco-Disco.com? Like some kind of Top Ten or likewise, but they don't need to be in order or something...
"There are tons more, but these are the first 10 that spring to mind today..."

Change"the Glow of love"
Carl Bean"I was born this way"
Brown Sugar (The Girls)"I'm going through changes now"
Harold Melvin"Bad Luck"
Inner Life"I'm caught up"
Elaine & Eileen"the Look of love"
Imagination"Changes"
D-Train"You're the one for me"
Gwen Guthrie"It should've been you"
Fantastic Aleems"Hooked on your love"

Great list. If you could choose just one Disco track that would describe 'Dimitri from Paris', which track would it be?
"Ron Hall and the Mothafunkaz - 'The way you love me' remix"
What kind of music do you personally prefer?
"Have a guess!"
Hahaha! OK! I think I can guess... So, Which of your own edit and remixes are you most proud of?
"I'm proud of..."

Eddie Kendricks"Date with the rain" edit
Ron Hall and the Mothafunkaz "The way you love me" remix
Stetsasonic"Talking all that jazz" remix
Bjork"Human Behaviour" remix

Dimitri from Paris as a conductor

Dimitri has not stopped with the edits and remixes, he has also been recording music under his own name.
First out were two EP's released in 1993 and 1994, followed by the mini-LP Esquisses.
Dimitri from Paris - Sacrebleu And in 1996 his first full length album was released - Sacrebleu. His Latin-Jazz-House music album sold over 300,000 copies worldwide and was named Album of the Year by UK's Mixmag magazine. Surprisingly it took until 1998 before it was released in the US.
In 1997 Mixmag released Monsieur Dimitri's De-Luxe House of Funk which included the hits "Dirty Larry" and "Sacre Francais".
Dimitri from Paris - My SalSoul The album My SalSoul was released in 2001 and is a mixdown of some of Dim's very favorite SalSoul songs. Its lots of GREAT classics from this legendary label and some of the tracks have even got a 'Dim treatment' for this compilation. The CD include works by Loleatta Holloway, Jocelyn Brown (with Inner Life), SalSoul Orchestra, Carol Williams, First Choice and others. It's Disco at its best...
In 2003 another Dimitri from Paris album was released - Cruising Attitude.
Dimitri from Paris - In the House Then in 2004, Defected in the UK released the very successful In the House: Mixed by Dimitri from Paris compilation. In this double CD Dimitri mix up House tunes with wonderful Disco music (of course). Where else would you find House acts like L'il Louis, Blaze, Louie Vega and Doug Willis (one of Dave Lee's alter egos) next to Disco greats as Rufus & Chaka Khan, O'Jays and Sinnamon?
Dimitri From Paris - In the House of Love Defected followed up the success in 2006 with the triple CD - In the House of Love: Mixed By Dimitri from Paris. The first 2 CD's are DJ mixed by Dim and include both classic gems and newer House stuff. A lot of the tracks comes in a Dim remix or re-edit. The 3'rd CD includes the full versions of some of these Dim remixes/re-edits and they are really a treat, including hard-to-find classics like Cerrone feat. Jocelyn Brown's "Hooked on you", Sylvester's "I Need You" and "Down To Love Town" by the Originals. Other acts found on the CD's are France Joli, Grace Jones, D-Train, Fat Larry's Band, BlackBox and others. It's really an excellent CD set that no one should miss out on...
Dimitri from Paris - Get Down With The Philly Sound In May 2010 there's a new collection called Get Down With The Philly Sound to be released by BBE.
The CD will go back to the roots of Disco and take you to the Sigma Sound Studio in Philadelphia, where the Disco music was born.

Dimitri relaxing

Have you got any special Disco related memories, either from when you first heard Disco music or as a DJ or edit/remixer? What I'm looking for could be some Disco track that just let you know that Disco was the thing for you or some track made something special happen on a DJ night or some edit/remix that just.... something.
"I think the first time I started having an interest in Disco was when I heard a French Club Chart radio show, the songs where usually pretty cheesy, but the DJ there was really working the breaks, adding all sorts of effects and jingles and he was making the music much more exciting than it originally was. That had a big influence on me as I realized the same record could sound different - better or worse - depending on who was playing it."

Dimitri In February 2005 Dim was dubbed Knight of the Arts and Letters by the French government for his influential and successful work in the music industry. An award that also acknowledge his personal style as art.
I always associate you with great style and in all the photo's I've seen you have a great taste in clothing. Is that another interest of yours?
"I do my own photo styling, it's always fun to create situations, and wear different styles of clothes. However I don't believe much in fashion, I follow my style not someone else's."
Good, and interesting... Because you have also made the music for the fashion shows of many of the legendary Parisian fashion houses, like: Chanel, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Lagerfeld, Hermès, Yves Saint-Laurent and the list goes on... How is that, and how do you select the music to those shows in order to get the 'right' feeling for their fashion?
"I was working more as a technician and my then partner, Michel Gaubert, was choosing the songs. Fashion people are usually pretty difficult to work with, and I didn't have the patience to deal with them..."
Haha! OK! Anything else you want to tell me about? Any and all information is very welcome, some fun happenings...
"Watch out for my remixes of 2 of my all time favorite artists; Imagination's 'Burning up' which is coming out soon on Juno Records and Ashford & Simpson's 'Stay Free' with other fresh mixes from Tom Moulton, Joey Negro, Joe Clausell and more.
A double CD that will also feature all the re-mastered mostly promo only original 12" versions and will be out on Rhino/Atlantic under the helm of Johnny D."

Wow! Sounds really exciting. Can't wait to hear those records... OK! Thank you for taking your time and answer all my questions! I really appreciated this a lot - THANK YOU!
"Thank YOU!"

There's no understatement to say that Dimitri has come a long way from his early edits some 25 years ago 'till today. He now receives well deserved recognition and he possesses an amazing knowledge when it comes to anything Disco.
He's a living legend and has the whole world as his workplace.
So keep your eyes and ears open for anything new with his name attached to it, as you know it will take you on a journey no one else has taken you before...
