MR DORIS (2016 Ibiza DJ Of The Year / Defected / Glitterbox) + special guest JNETT
Ibiza DJ Of The Year? Check. Resident and curator of After Dark at Carl Cox’s legendary We Love night at Space in Ibiza? Check. Local Melbourne legend JNETT? Check! This Sunday Joey Smalls in Brunswick is going extra large as we host one of Ibiza’s finest Mr Doris for a sunset session in our intimate courtyard. An evening of music without borders: hip hop, funk, soul, jazz, hip hop, latin, disco, drum & bass, afrobeat, house, reggae, and anything else that soothes the soul, supported by one of our favourites JNETT from 5pm – late. Originally from the UK but calling Ibiza home for the past 10 years, Mr Doris holds down residencies at some of the biggest clubs on the island as well as recently being appointed musical director for the legendary Manumissions’ new project EGO. Receiving praise from peers as diverse as Carl Cox, Gilles Peterson, Dimitri From Paris, Jurassic 5 and Roni Size, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get that Ibiza small club vibe without the cost of the airfare as Mr Doris farewells the day and welcomes the night under the stars at Joey Smalls. As Joey Smalls is only licensed for 100 people, we are giving the first 50 people to register their interest priority entry before 6pm. After that it’s every person for themselves!
MR DORIS BIO
The man they call Doris. Award winning DJ and producer Mr Doris’ incredible turntable talents fuse his inﬂuences of jazz, hip hop, funk and soul with the modern genres of house and future disco. These skills combined with his unwavering passion for music and performance led industry leaders to recently name him Best Ibiza DJ in the International DJ Awards. His unique style has seen Mr Doris tour the globe on a regular basis as well as hold down respected residencies for brands such as Defected, Glitterbox, Magic Door (UK/Croatia), Pacha, Space and his most recent tenure at Hï Ibiza. In the studio, Mr Doris has worked with reggae legend Sizzla, king of beats Nightmares On Wax, musical maestros Groove Armada and jazz greats The Baker Brothers while his tracks have recently been championed by Red Bull and Seth Troxler in promotional campaigns. As resident DJ and musical director of Manumission’s new project EGO at Lio Ibiza (bringing in the likes of Doorly, PBR Streetgang, Lovebirds, PillowTalk and many others to the booth of the venue of 17 weeks) and world renowned beach restaurant El Chiringuito (Ibiza, Marbella and Dubai), Mr Doris is as comfortable playing a chilled Balearic set as he is moving the masses on a dance ﬂoor or curating a catwalk. Whatever the venue, clientele or time of day, he can truly mould or adapt his sound to ﬁt the listener. It is this versatility that sees Mr Doris in constant demand throughout the world.
