Colin Peters DJ Biography
“I only wanted something else to do but hang around”.
Pet Shop Boys (Suburbia)
Using this lyric from Suburbia as an inspiration, Colin escaped from his sleepy hometown of High Wycombe, first to London and then to the island of Ibiza.
Colin is now about to start his 15th summer season in Ibiza, where he has played in almost all of the major discotheques. He was resident DJ at Manumission for nine amazing years and resident in the Funky Room in Pacha for three years. He has also played regularly at We Love Space over the last five years.
He is currently resident DJ at Ibiza Rocks spinning at the musical trinity of Ibiza Rocks Hotel, Ibiza Rocks Aftershow & Pikes each Wednesday alongside groups such as New Order, Kasabian, Alt-J, Bloc Party and Two Door Cinema Club.
For the past eight years Colin has been resident DJ at Rock Nights, which has grown from a party in the local bars of Ibiza to hosting nights in some of the biggest clubs on Planet Earth including Pacha, Privilege and Ushuaia. 2011 also saw Colin play weekly at Space, with Rock Nights hosting 6 parties on the Sunset Terrace for We Love Sundays at Space and 10 parties in the Red Box for Café Olé.
Colin is one of the resident DJs for the Rock Nights Tour, which has visited cities like Paris (La Machine du Moulin Rouge), Ghent (Charlatan), London (Rattlesnake and Zigfrid Von Underbelly), Barcelona (Crappy Tuesdays), Valencia (La3), Madrid (Zombie Club) and Seville (Obbio Club). Colin is also producer and presenter of a weekly radio show called Rock Nights Radio, each Sunday night at 10 p.m. on Vicious Radio
Apart from Rock Nights, Colin has graced the DJ boxes of Guilty Pleasures, ASBO, 21st Century Noise and The Hoxton Pony (London), Nasty Mondays and CDLC (Barcelona) Nells and Fabuloso Club (Madrid) FIB Benicassim and The Reading Festival to name a few.
Colin considers himself lucky to have found clubs and nights where he can play electronica, dance, and forgotten classics of the 80s and full on rock numbers to an appreciative crowd.
