Darius Syrossian
From: UK    Latest Podcast

Since moving to the UK as a 14-year-old, Darius’ fascination with electronic music has never waned, having initially been infected by its futuristic lure at an underground party back in 1991. Taking formative influences from New York, Detroit and Chicago masters such as Kenny Dope, Derrick Carter, Derrick May, DJ Sneak and Carl Craig, a pure and unadulterated house sound has always been Darius’ pre-occupation in place of passing fads or zeitgeist defining trends.

The last few years have been a blur to say the least. Tirelessly touring, remixing, producing as well as taking on new musical commitments has seen Darius catapulted from ‘the worker’s champion’ in Ibiza to an international brand that is a symbol of non-conformist DJing and a musical pigeon hole destroyer all rolled into one. 

Anyone that knows Darius via his social media circles, knows he’s not one to sit quietly while anyone with a poorly formed opinion is negative about the scene he so clearly loves. This is one of the many reasons for Darius’ bona-fide popularity. He does not care about DJ top 100 charts, who is cool and who’s not. He cares about playing the music he loves and giving the dance floor the best night of their lives.

Darius’ success in recent years is partly down to having been a resident for three different Ibiza parties - VIVa Warriors, Tribal Sessions and Do Not Sleep. All started as brand new nights but were a big hit and the best parties on the white isle by the end of their first season.

Releases on labels such as Get Physical, VIVa Music, Hot Creations, 8bit, Avotre and many more have also helped Darius gain the loyal following that he has. The annual clubbing awards in Ibiza voted Darius as ‘Best House DJ’ of 2014. Usually he would take this with a pinch of salt but it was voted for by the public, which is the only real opinion that Darius recognises. The same year Darius helped Sankeys relaunch Tribal Sessions in Manchester a party which saw every show become a sell out. This residency won Darius DJ Magazine’s Best of British award for ‘Best Resident DJ’ of 2014. 

After leaving Sankeys in 2015, his focus that summer included shows at Space Opening Fiesta, Hyte at Amnesia, Kehakuma. His main weekly residency for Do Not Sleep at Vista was a roaring success and one of the stand out parties and success stories of Ibiza 2015.

Fast forward to 2016 and it is proving to be another huge year for Darius. Relentless touring, spreading his sound around the world has now seen him play pretty much every major festival in the world taking in too many countries to list, spread over every continent on the globe. 

Fresh new music coming out soon on various labels not to mention his own Do Not Sleep imprint, which adds a musical dimension to the name of his white-hot Ibiza parties. His career to date would show you that Darius has not broken the mould of what a modern house and techno DJ should be. He chooses to follow in the footsteps of the house scene’s forefathers and has the ability and intuition to link the past and future together.
