“Doing what you love is a blessing. If you work hard and do it right, that’s all that counts” – DJ Dino
Dino was born and raised in the 1980s in one of the world’s historical house music epicentres, New York City, before moving to Greece in 1993 at the age of 13 – taking some of the city’s musical heritage along with him. By the time he was 20, he was already working as a PR for one of Athens’ hottest clubs, Bossa Nostra, all the while following his passion for soulful 4/4 beats. He found his musical hero in Little Louie Vega, one half of the legendary Masters At Work and legend in his own right, with soulful, uplifting house becoming his raison d’être. His love for the genre soon saw him enter the world of promoting, building a solid reputation for himself with his Project / Music For Us nights in the city over the next two years.
He began an exclusive business relationship with Louie Vega in Greece, building strong ties with the man who inspired him so much over the years. Vega’s colleagues Timmy Regisford and Quentin Harris also became key inspirations for Dino’s style of positive, organic house music, and by 2005 he had packed in the day job to focus on DJing full time.
Dino’s presence in the Greek scene is ubiquitous. When the long, scorching Greek summer season hits, he relocates to the island of Mykonos, playing often at the world-famous beach club Cavo Paradiso and the London 'Egg
The border breakthrough for him was in March 2010, where he performed in New York City ( The Sullivan Room) in Room 84 N.J & at the WMC where he will get the main floor ready for the legendary Timmy Regisford & Merlin Bob @ the Shelbourne hotel for the shelter party.
2013 is the year where Dino started with much promise his own label zero10 Records having the 1st release with superstar Shaya and the song ''Im in Love'' which is hitting the top of the charts for over a month
Dino’s career is looking very bright indeed. Not everybody understands house music – but he sure as hell does.
