Ibiza DJ focus | Doorly

Profiling an island personality.

Each week, we'll be featuring an island-based DJ who is making waves on Ibiza and further afield. From keen newcomers to established DJs, we will be bringing you the very best of the island's talent from places you might not have thought to look.

Introducing... Doorly

The focus of the second instalment is a multi-talented individual who calls Ibiza his home. Doorly's career has stretched for well over a decade, but in that time he's accomplished what many DJs do in a lifetime.

Perhaps most impressive, is his ability to span multiple genres whilst holding down a variety of roles in clubland. As well as being an acclaimed DJ and producer, he's now also a mentor to aspiring DJs through his start-up, Orbit DJ Retreats.


From humble beginnings in Huddersfield, Doorly has travelled the world with his illustrious career. Recently married, he's now settled down to living in Ibiza in the summer and Los Angeles in the winter - not a bad life by anyone's standards!


Having experimented with many different genres including dubstep, he has now found an affinity with house music.

Whilst past releases on Crosstown Rebels and Get Physical Music lauded him underground credibility, it's on his own Reptile Dysfunction label where Doorly has come into his own as a producer.

Serving as a platform for more experimental releases, Doorly brings a distinct funky feel to each record. A fine example of this, would be his latest collaboration with Colour Castle.


Doorly has toured globally in 2019, including a stretch in the USA where he took Reptile Dysfunction on the road.

Last month he returned to the island once again for sun-soaked bonanza, La Discothèque Pool Party. There he made a splash alongside Derrick Carter and Soul Clap. You can catch him laying down more disco cuts at Ibiza Rocks hotel again on Monday 16 September.


For his final Ibiza date of the summer, Doorly is heading to Benimussa Park for an old school session with a difference.

The much-loved We Love crew are fondly remembered for their glory days of hosting parties on Space's terrace. This summer they return to the Ibiza, throwing one-off party We Love... Benimussa Park. The day to night session takes place on Wednesday 2 October.

Doorly will be on deck duties, alongside big names such as Alfredo, Jason Bye, Mr Doris, Sarah Main and many more. If you fancy a little trip down nostalgia lane, this is the party for you. See below for full details and tickets.


Most admirable about Doorly, is his willingness to help others achieve their goals. His most recent project Orbit DJ Retreats takes place at Fred's Finca between 6 and 11 October.

The course includes sessions and tutorials, with topics ranging from music production to social media marketing. In an interview with Mixmag earlier this year, Doorly had this to say about the sharing of knowledge and his role as a tutor:

”It should be an imperative part of this music industry, to help the new breed breakthrough simply by passing on your knowledge - and trying to help them not make some of the mistakes that you did along the way!

It costs nothing but a little time to do, but it can be life-changing for the recipient. The feeling of seeing them benefit from a little bit of help gives me a buzz like no other.”
