A Force in the Northern California Electronic Music Scene
Dimitris Mykonos is considered by many to be the best nightclub DJ in the San Francisco Bay Area. Since the late 1990s, Dimitris’ innovative mixing talent, raw energy and creative spirit have exerted an irresistible pull for a cross-section of people, from twenty-something San Francisco scenesters to European expatriates. Known for his ability to connect with his audience and bring people to their feet to dance, he incorporates diverse styles of music, from uplifting vocal house to progressive to trance to Latin into seamless, smooth-flowing, exuberant sets that turn every Dimitris Mykonos show into a celebration.
Standing Out from the Crowd
One of the most prolific DJs in northern California, Dimitris Mykonos now plays more than 200 gigs a year, including clubs in San Francisco, Las Vegas, Miami, Cancun, and even Moscow. He has shared the stage with some of the world’s best DJs, including Paul Van Dyk, Bad Boy Bill and Christopher Lawrence. He headlines legendary events such as San Francisco’s Exotic Erotic Ball and the San Francisco Love Parade, and is resident DJ for Ruby Skye, PleasureZone, 1015 Folsom, Fluid, Crash and Mixed Elements. His website receives over a million page views a month from loyal fans across the U.S. and around the world. In his adopted home of San Francisco, a city reputed to have more DJs per capita than any other, Dimitris stands out. As DJ Bad Boy Bill says, “Dimitris Mykonos is one of the best DJs in the world, coming out of San Francisco.”
Radio and Recording Artistry
Now a UBL recording artist, Dimitris recently produced a double album of sexy house tracks entitled San Francisco Mixx. Just released in November 2006, the album is already soaring on local and national charts. Dimitris' mixing talents have long been familiar to radio listeners; he is one of the original residents of the Thump Radio show in Los Angeles on KBIG 104.3 FM (www.kbig.com). Co-hosted by Thump's Captain Mason Rothert, the show enjoys the #1 spot on its time slot in Southern California. Dimitris' mixes flow right after midnight almost nightly across the Los Angeles sky. In Northern California, Dimitris co-hosts the popular live-mixed Clubbers Commute program on San Francisco's Energy 92.7, along with Trevor Simpson. Dimitris also channels the dynamic energy of his live performances into stellar remixes of house tracks, including his 2005 mix of Lola’s “No Strings”, which reached #2 on the American Billboard dance charts, and Plummet’s “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover”, which charted in the top ten for Energy 92.7 FM.
