Today, Mr Doris showcases his eclectic and chilled musical selection by day at some of the island’s most stylish and sophisticated Ibiza restaurants and beach clubs: El Chiringuito, BEACHOUSE Ibiza and Cotton Lounge Club. It is these lunchtime sessions that have seen him play to the likes of Luciano, Sven Vath, Martin Solveig and Bob Sinclar, all of whom make a point of stopping by the DJ booth to compliment him on his different take on a beachside soundtrack.
By night, you’ll find him in the hallowed booths of Space for Glitterbox and curating his own After Dark project in conjunction with Carl Cox and Space on Sundays, Flower Power at Pacha and the all-new Applebum hip hop party at Sankeys Ibiza. “I feel very lucky to have found people throughout the years who employ me not to play the usual tech or deep house found in the clubs,” he says. “This is what’s ultimately kept me on the island.”
You spend a lot of time travelling – how do you feel when you’re on the plane, flying back into Ibiza?
Home! Even though my family and a lot of my friends are in the UK, Ibiza is the only place I miss as soon as I leave, and the only place I feel completely at home when I come back.
What is your favourite part of the island?
I don’t have a favourite part. They’re all different. I choose to live in Ibiza town and I absolutely love Dalt Vila and can’t imagine myself living anywhere but here, but I also love authentic places like St Agnes when I get the chance to spend time there.
