Dimitri From Paris, appearing at one of the very last parties at Secret Garden on 16 December.

Groove Terminator and Rodd Richards are proud to present for the very first time in Byron Bay, France’s very own king of Disco, Dimitri From Paris, appearing at one of the very last parties at Secret Garden on 16 December. 

As the French ambassador of stylish club sounds, Dimitri from Paris is everything his nation could be proud of: a DJ, producer and remixer of the highest standard, and a stylish snake-hipped pin-up with French reserve. 

His musical influences are deeply rooted in 70s Funk and Disco sounds that spawned today’s House music but also original soundtracks from 50s and 60s cult movies. With such a large mix, Dimitri remains one of clubland’s most empathic and most unpredictable DJs. Playing across genres and tempos, his first goal is to share his love for music while moving your mind, body, and soul. 

Arguably Australia’s first ‘Superstar DJ’, Simon ‘Groove Terminator’ Lewicki has been at the top of his game as both a DJ and music industry professional for over 35 years. The first DJ to sign to a major label in Australia, his breakout single for Virgin, the Big Beat-flavoured Hair soundtrack sampling – One More time (The Sunshine Song) went top 20 in several countries including Australia and even in France, while almost at the same time under the disco-tinged alias Chili HiFly he scored the pole position Australian and US Billboard dance chart #1 single Is It Love in 2001. Teaming up with Ministry Of Sound Australia since its inception, mixing the very first compilations, touring nationally as a DJ and recording artist he’s also in recent years been working with Ministry of Sound Australia as the Creative Director and DJ / Host for their massively successful national touring Orchestral Classics show.

Secret Garden, December 16, 6pm.
