Mixin’ it up: Don Rimini

Feb 16 2007

We’re staying in Europe for this next part of the Mixin’ it up series, our Parisian buddy Don Rimini blew us away with the track “Let me back up” which came out last year and it has brought down a storm when we’ve played it at our dj-nights. It was about time he did a mix for us so enjoy this and don’t forget to pick up his new 12inch “Time to panic”. On to the mix:

“Don Rimini, improved partying. This guy went to rave parties back in the 90ies. It follows that: His music stinks like a club dancefloor at 3am. Maybe with a hip hop touch then? Cause this guy´s also been into hip hop a lot. Xavier Gassemann, this 30-year-old Parisien also known as Don Rimini. From hip hop to techno, this is the true story of a real DJ in Selectorland, of a vinyl maniac fond of melting Techno, Hip Hop, Ghetto House, Rock and Pop together. You can rest assured that Don Rimini has been a playlist agitator since ’98, and today he’s releasing his first own record, « TIME TO PANIC », 4 tracks that will get the shyest chap around on his feet and dancing. His music’s like plugging a strobe to your Nintendo joystick, over-inflating your pair of limited Air Max edition, or swallowing the disco-ball !!! But why “Don Rimini”, you ask. Because of the so-named seaside resort, the first rave parties over there, an article about all this in a magazine. Our man’s great sense of derision accounts for the “Don”. Of course, he’s never been partying in Rimini. Nor is he any more Italian than I, Olivier Schmitt.”
