Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Once the music bug bites, a true artist always returns to their roots; this is exactly why Dorian Perez known currently as d. Perez was hooked back into his passion for music. Starting out in 2007 as part of the Houston based duo RND; Dorian and Rene Muñoz introduced their simple yet better than average style and gained popularity with numerous live sets and over 25 remixes released as RND. Pulling guidance and influences from inspirational DJs such as Fedde Le Grande and Eric Prydz, RND developed their own progressive sound. After growing and developing his own distinctive, more of a deep house style, Dorian decided to branch off on his own.
Keeping in line with the desire to mix more of a deeper blend, Dorian reached for Hot Since 82, Agents of Time and his biggest inspiration, Tale of Us, d. Perez works to take his sound one step further then your traditional dance music, adding more of a dark, techie, nighttime vibe. He reaches the ears of listeners by putting out an endorphin-releasing, constant yet unnoticeable connection to the crowd. Creating a sound that takes a moment to catch up to, d. Perez is making is mark within the San Antonio dance scene in more of a minimal lighting type venue where his music can stand out on its own and not be overshadowed by the production.
d. Perez has his sights set on an individual production but his ideas are more in his mind, and not so much on paper. While being mindful of his roots, he looks to continue to evolve with the music, playing 2-3 shows a month in San Antonio and wherever his talents will take him. With his connection to the local market, we will continue to see and hear d. Perez support his home town through his distinctive mixes and inventive sounds.
