In an age where it seems almost impossible to become a successful DJ
without having made at least one hit tune, Patrick Nazemi is a rare case.
Arguably one of the most driven multi-genre DJs around, Nazemi takes his
musical selections from a deep and vast knowledge of great music. His sets
are filled with underground flavours and overground capacity that whip any
crowd into a frenzy across the globe. Proven time after time from Mumford & Sons arena tours to Craig David TS5 pool parties to countless warehouse
raves – Patrick is proudly open format and happy to play any crowd in front of
As resident at Ibiza Rocks, one of the island’s best-known and most inclusive
events, Patrick regularly entertains crowds of 3,000+ ravers, playing alongside a list of acts befitting of some of the world’s largest festival stages. Technically gifted, with deep musical knowledge and tons of personality, he is a proud representation of the art of DJing who has earned himself universal respect from industry figureheads and, most importantly, the crowds he entertains week-in, week-out…
During the summer of 2014, Patrick was hand-picked to be the new face of ‘Ibiza Rocks’ Wednesday Nights’, becoming the brands main headline resident DJ. By the end of the 2014 summer season he played over 100 sets to an estimated 50,000 people whilst working alongside Rudimental, Ed Sheeran, Nas, The 1975, Tinie Tempah, Bastille, Clean Bandit, Jess Glynne, John Newman, Lily Allen and Ella Eyre. The company also selected Patrick as a headline act for all ‘Ibiza Rocks’ After Parties’ at the world- famous venue Es Paradis, and requested that he DJ and host all ‘Ibiza Rocks The Boat’ parties. On top of the hotel and boat party residency, Patrick maintained a third residency at the Ibiza Rocks Bar where he had the pleasure of DJing with Mark Ronson, Sigma, Ben Pearce, Hannah Wants, Mele and BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe, Toddla T and B. Traits.
Patrick’s DJ sets are a direct reflection of his own eclectic tastes, showcasing a level of versatility that is slowly becoming extinct. He is as comfortable occupying the commercial end of the musical spectrum as he is in the underground domain. In May 2016 he was a guest on one of the UK’s longest running and most respected underground radio stations, Rinse FM, where he joined Sam Supplier. Another industry fan, Sam described Patrick as: “The most technically talented DJ I’ve ever seen”.
Still ambitious and working towards his next big goal, Patrick is as dedicated to music now as he ever was, full of drive and infectious energy. With a broad range of skills and experience at his disposal, he’s a few cheeky steps ahead of most of his peers and is certain to continue making huge strides forward. Patrick has his eyes firmly fixed on the potential of radio and will undoubtedly be hosting his own show in no time. Meanwhile he maintains his presence at a long list of events and, of course, a consistently packed schedule of DJ gigs across the UK and Europe… phew!
Patrick currently holds residencies across Europe with some of the world's biggest brands including:
