This week we turn to Roy Rovelli - who started DJing when he was 12 and won the Black Tie Ball Co under 18 DJ comp when he was 14. His prize was to be resident at all their events until he was 18.
So for four years he started playing at Camden Palace (Now Koko), Middlesex & Herts Country Club and various other clubs around London until at 17 he became the in house DJ for the Q Bar (New Burlington St), one year later he became resident on Friday and Saturday for The Emporium (Tantra Now Studio Val Bonne) and every Thursday @ The Mayfair Club. He worked at both clubs until 2002 - 2003 when they both closed down.
During his time at the Mayfair Club, Roy got the chance to DJ for Puff Daddy, Lennox Lewis, Busta Rhymes, Eve and Bruce Willis to name a few. He was also sent out to St Tropez to DJ at the Mayfair Club party at V.I.P. Whilst there he did a few sets at La Voile Rouge one of the best beach clubs in the world. Roy has also played in a few of the bars around the port.
After his two homes closed down Roy moved to the Embassy Club for 7 Months then moved to Tantra (Same owner as Emporium, same location, different look) and started working every Thursday and Saturday there. He was also working every Wednesday and Friday at Attica. During his time at Attica he DJ'ed at the Eminem Anger Management Tour Party (he didn't turn up, he was too busy shopping in Paris) 50 Cent and D12 came down (Bizarre form D12 requested Vanilla Ice, Ice Ice Baby).
Roy eventually managed to get a chance to DJ for Eminem at the D12 Devils Night Album release party at No5 Cavendish SQ. In 2009 Roy did the opening party for the Sundance Film Festival in Utah, USA and became musical director at Private members club Automat in Mayfair, London.
Roy is not only one of the best DJs we've had at The Pony this year, but quite simply one of the best and most in demand DJs in the world. Roy has performed sets for all the big names and last year saw Roy flying all over the world performing exclusive sets in places such as the Dominican Republic, Santorini and Ibiza.
Colin Peters is an infamous resident DJ in Ibiza who also plays in other salubrious parts of Europe and beyond. Colin was one of the weekly residents at Manumission from 1998 until 2007. When Ibiza Rocks started in 2005 he was one of the first DJs to play at this weekly mash up.
For the last five years Colin has been resident DJ at Rock Nights in Ibiza. Last year Rock Nights did parties in Ushuaia and Pacha in Ibiza, Formentera, Joy Eslava and Charada in Madrid, Cultura Club in Palma de Mallorca and The Barfly in London. Rock Nights was named as one of the 20 best parties in Spain by the newspaper El Pais in July 2010. Summer 2010 saw Colin play at three of the biggest festivals of the year: The Reading Festival, FIB Benicassim (Spain) and the Sonorama Festival in Burgos (Spain).
Summer 2011 was a legendary season for Colin. He played weekly at Space for Rock Nights where they hosted 6 parties for We Love Space on Sundays and 10 parties for Café Olé on Saturdays with guests such as The Glimmers, Mystery Jets DJs, Cassette Jam and Rob Da Bank. Both Saturday and Sunday parties were incredible with Colin taking the bull by the horns and closing the Sunset Terrace at We Love. Colin also played weekly at the Ibiza Rocks Aftershow at Es Paradis and occasionally at Lio (previously El Divino)
Winter 2011 saw Colin spending his time between England and Spain with Rock Nights doing a monthly party in Pacha Ibiza, as well as playing in cities such as Barcelona, Valencia, Sevilla and Badajoz. Regarding England, Colin has been doing guest sets in London at places such as ASBO, Transmission, 21st Century Noise and, of course, The Hoxton Pony. In 2012 he can only get bigger!
