Dimitri From Paris Intro:
Compared to his cohorts in the new wave of French dance music, Dimitri From Paris
looks much farther afield for his influences. While both Air and Daft Punk
make much of their affection for the music of the 1970s (prog and disco, respectively), Monsieur Dimitri's inspiration comes from the Continental jet-setting faux-jazz of the 1950s and early '60s (exemplified by Dick Hyman, John Barry and Martin Denny), though the whole is updated by his long years of experience as a house DJ.
Based in France though he was born in Turkey, Dimitri entered the dance-music community during the mid-'80s by DJing at the French Radio 7. By 1990, his reputation had allowed him to record soundtracks for fashion barons like Chanel, Lagerfeld and Gaultier. He released two solo EPs during 1993-94, plus the mini-LP Esquisses, and contributed to the Yellow Productions compilation La Yellow 357. He also remixed hundreds of artists, including Björk, the Brand New Heavies, New Order, James Brown and Etienne Daho. Dimitri's debut album, Sacre Bleu, appeared in late 1996, also on Yellow Productions. Named Album of the Year by MixMag, it sold several hundred thousand copies around the world and finally received an American release in early 1998. The 1997 mix album Monsieur Dimitri's De-Luxe House of Funk, however, showed the Frenchman coming back to his house roots. In lieu of a second production album, he mixed several more sets: A Night at the Playboy Mansion, and the BBE box set Disco Forever.
