There are some fellows in the industry who take themselves too seriously, some that like to start twitter beefs, and then there are some like the always playful, yet highly skilled Martin Doorly, known to most simply as Doorly. The Northern UK born, Ibiza based producer skips all that nonsense and just has fun with the fame which has found its way into his life. Take for example the satirical content of his recently leaked rider back in May in which he demanded left-handed CDJs, six potty trained puppies of all different breeds, and maybe the most hilariously odd request of all, female security guards only all over the age of 60 wearing no underpants.
In addition to the witty playfulness, the main is a wiz in the studio and on the decks as well. And as it's known to many, a DJ's set is based on two primary factors. The first being skill and the other being track selection. So if you want to catch the man at work in the flesh, make sure you take a gander at all of his upcoming gigs at the bottom of the page. But first, take a look and a listen to the tunes he's selected for us which are the big ones on the floor for him this Summer.
'STAY WITH ME' - DOORLY & SWITCH FEAT IDRIS ELBA
My forthcoming release with these two dudes, genuinely my biggest record on any dancefloor and I can't wait until the world can hear it in full!
'FINAL CREDITS' - MIDLAND
My god I wish I made this record, it's a beautiful thing
'ANTOIS BENIME (AUSTRAL PARC)' - S3A
Super funky little loopy disco edit I picked up on vinyl, I play this every set.
'WILLY WONKY' - DOORLY
From my new EP on Cajmere's Cajual Records. It came out last week but it's been making people freak out for a good few months now in my sets.
'MIDNIGHT' - JUSTIN MARTIN
Weird as hell and a real moment in my sets when I have the right kind of open-minded crowd, it's like liquid dnb but in a house track.
'WONKY BASSLINE DISCO BANGER' - RED RACK 'EM
The track title describes exactly what this track it! So much fun to play.
'MADAN (SIS EDIT)' - SALIF KEITA
Get out of jail free record to wake up a crowd or just spice things up a little.
'SYNTH & STRINGS (PATRICK TOPPING EDIT)' - YOMANDA
Nice little secret weapon that Paddy Tops sent me. Absolute banger.
'OPUS (FOUR TET REMIX) (DOORLY EDIT)' - ERIC PRYDZ
Did my own little edit of this for the festivals. Such an insane breakdown it sends people loopy.
'LET IT HAPPEN (SOULWAX REMIX)' - TAME IMPALA
Maybe my favourite record of the last 5 years.
