DJing – despite the intense pressures of social media, the rigours of self-promotion and increasingly, making your own music – it's still about playing the right music, at the right time.
And it’s a maxim that Rossi lives by. A DJ for almost 2 decades, he’s evolved and grown as a performer as the art of DJing has shifted from lugging crates of vinyl from party to party, to turning up to the club or bar armed with just a pair of headphones and an action-packed USB.
The constant, and passion throughout those years has been his never-ending search for new music, and putting it together so that dancefloors combust in a fist-pumping frenzy.
An extremely well-travelled DJ with almost as many air miles as Richard Branson, Rossi has rocked many prestigious parties, and events across the world including Cape Town, Cyprus, Poland, Zambia, Ibiza, and extensively across Greece’s party islands.
Based in Dubai since 2016, he’s already been featured in the Hype & Shortlist Magazines, gained a monthly radio show on Dance FM 97.8, and been booked extensively throughout the UAE including the Spartan Race after party, OK Magazine awards, Splash Festival, as well as being a highly-coveted yacht party DJ. His current Dubai residencies are: Café Belge - (Ritz Carlton Hotel DIFC), Bidi Bondi - (Palm Shoreline).
Rossi is now an in-demand multi genre / open format DJ in the UAE - playing upfront sets or club classics, he is able to cater to any event or venue with an unerring ability to read the crowd and adapt as needed.
An incredibly versatile party-starter, with a background as a vinyl turntablist, he entertains the masses with his superb technical skills and raw energy. He’s been a superstar DJ in his own right, holding down global residencies for world-famous brands like Hed Kandi, Cream, Godskitchen and Pukka Up.
All this being said, Rossi is still as focused on the DJing fundamentals as when he started in the late 90s – playing the right music at the right time. DJing really can be that simple.
