MEET THE TEAM
With a weekly radio show since 2012 and residencies in Ibiza, playing his eclectic mix of Balearic, Chill Out, House & Techno, it’s not often you ﬁnd a DJ who can keep you dancing from sunset to sunrise. Pete Bidwell fits that bill.
From the ﬁrst-ever set he played at a party he organised in a barn in Norfolk, UK, back in 2002, Pete’s been hooked and has been playing for crowds around the globe since, from Heaven, McQueen, Ministry of Sound & Pacha in his home town of London to gigs in Austria, Croatia, Hungary, Italy, Slovakia, Spain & Sweden in Europe as well as venues in Australia.
Whether it’s playing at Tokio Hotel while watching the sun go down across Darling Harbour in Sydney, or at night time in Paramount, high above London, DJing on an island, playing in a ‘cave’ or a glass DJ booth suspended from the ceiling, Pete’s done it.
A beach boy from Cornwall through and through, Pete’s also a resident in Ibiza, where he’s played warm up sets for major artists, most recently Mark Knight, Kaiser Disco, Sidney Charles, Audioﬂy, Guti, Enzo Siragusa & tINI. Pete’s also worked for promoters such as Lock n Load events & The Gallery in London.
Pete doesn’t like sticking to just one genre of music. He believes that good DJs should be able to play anything and Pete does just that, he’d be just as comfortable playing at his best friend’s wedding, on ‘The Sunset Strip’ in Ibiza, at a beach party or even in a club. Pete’s also all about doing things differently. He stays versatile as a DJ by learning new skills and by using different formats and equipment from Vinyl to Digital. Armed with a laptop loaded with software and using MIDI controllers as well as a traditional DJ set up, Pete has carved a sound and live sets to be admired.
When people ask me what style of music I play, I simply reply ‘just good music’, I love what I do and focus all of my energy, heart and soul into every show.
Summer 2014, saw Pete land a weekly residency at Café Mambo and as well as his daily schedule at Savannah & his sunset to midnight sets at Sushi Mambo, along with regular Savannah Back Room parties with his ‘circle.’ residents, it was an excellent season in Ibiza.
2015, saw Pete hit the studio to focus more on the production side of things and he played regularly at La Cava, Le Bar & Villa Mercedes as well as iconic sunset sessions at Hostel La Torre, Mint & Sushi Mambo.
