Nico & Dean Drive Time Show
Deans love of dance music started at the age of 12 once he discovered pirate radio. Early house and hardcore/breakbeat was the sound that got him hooked and the next step was to learn to mix himself. Dean started DJing in his bedroom in the mid nineties once he could finally afford a set of turntables! After years of raving he ended up falling out of the scene for a while, but then a trip back to Ibiza in 2004 reignited his love for the music and DJing so he got back in the game and built his way up to playing at some of London’s best venues and for some big promotions over the next few years. The highlight of this was landing a gig at Ministry of Sounds 21st Birthday event which was featured in Mixmag. After years of playing for other promoters parties, Dean decided to start throwing his own with his wife & raving partner Jo, so Detached Parties was born! Fusing new skool and old skool music together, they went on to put on sell out boat parties and club events all over London in venues such as Egg, Pacha & Electric Brixton to name a few. They also took the brand to Ibiza and have hosted a few nights in the white isle! Dean also went on to host a Detached radio show for years across various stations. Dean continues to Dj at different venues from London to Ibiza and always keeps the crowd dancing with his mix of Oldskool & newskool beats!
