TESTIMONIALS

Retreat Itinerary

Gorgon City (Matt)

The retreat was an amazing week of teaching and learning for me. I met some amazing people and made some friendships for life! The attention and time that the students get is really good and the setting is beautiful. I even signed some tracks to our record label. If you want to improve your skills or just meet some great people - orbit DJ retreats is the place!

Retreat Itinerary

Rob da Bank (Bestival)

Orbit in Ibiza was such an incredible event. To be part of that process of watching DJs learning, helping each other and working so hard but healthily was a joy to see and to host my own Sleep Retreat wellness platform there was the icing on the cake.

Retreat Itinerary

GAWP (Dirtybird)

The Orbit retreat in Ibiza was one of the most influential environments i've ever been to. What a place share my musical knowledge and experience, Everyone came from all corners of the globe to enhance their careers and skill sets by some of the industries leading mentors and I can honestly say... one week at the Orbit retreat created more than just a educational week, it also created a musical family, with great futures ahead.

Retreat Itinerary

Sam Beck (Leisurely)

Orbit and my time in Ibiza was incredible. To play a small part of the retreat was such an honour to say the least. The retreat was a great place to learn every facet of the industry, direct from the people living and breathing music. Chatting with all the attendees and mentors, I got the sense this was something really special. If you have the chance, make the time and get to Orbit Retreats.

Mark Burnett (Ableton)

Whether you're just starting out or a seasoned pro you couldn’t make a smarter investment in your career as a DJ. Orbit DJ Retreats are pure gold, you simply won't find a better opportunity to up your game, there simply isn't anything like it

Retreat Itinerary

Ian Hurst (We Are Hummingbird Health)

Orbit was like nothing I have experienced before, being part of a DJ retreat as the Mental Health partner was groundbreaking territory and so We had no idea what to expect. What I got was one of the most memorable weeks of my life, seeing super talented artists graft and learn new skills from the best DJs around the world, whilst also being privileged enough to have 1:1 chats and understand people’s drives and ambitions was a true gift. I still speak to a lot of the guys now and they know they have a safe pair of ears, that understands their reality, to talk to should the pressure or anxiety of performing ever get too much. Can’t recommend this enough!

Retreat Itinerary

Matt Hobin "Hobbs" DJ & Producer (UK)

Doorly single handedly raised my performance levels to a new height, explaining everything in a clear and precise way. On top of working with one of the most sought after DJ/Producers in the world he is also one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. I will be booking with him again to continue improving my skills. Since being taught by Doorly I’ve since gone on to join the Reptile Dysfunction family as an artist, with my release played by Marco Carolla and Jamie Jones, and I’m also employed as part of the label management team.

Retreat Itinerary

Danny Taylor (Tan-Dem)

From the moment I mentioned the Tan-Dem project Doorly was on board mentoring me every step of the way. Under his stewardship I've played on the same bills as some of the greatest our scene has to offer, MK, Claude Von Stroke, Annie Mac, to name a few, and our styles seemed to compliment eachother in such a way that collaboration was inevitable. It was slightly less than a year from the date of our first release that I was playing Ministry of Sound with three of our tracks in my set having been released on labels as prestigious as Dirty Bird, Cross Town Rebels and of course our home...Reptile Dysfunction

Retreat Itinerary

Hugh Cruickshank (Audiopaxx)

Orbit was the most unique experience I’ve ever been a part of. The opportunity to form social relationships and learn from the most respected artists and music industry professionals in the world is priceless. It goes beyond the week in Ibiza as well… I know I’ve personally booked past students to perform at our events, and others have released on Doorly’s or Gorgon City’s label after meeting them at the retreat.

Retreat Itinerary

Samuel Roukin “Roukin” Actor, DJ & Producer (UK)

DOORLY really understood my sound, showed me how to do everything with more ease, flair and confidence and gave me a whole bag of new tricks to boot. He is the most technically brilliant DJs I have met and is a wizard at passing that knowledge on. On top of this, he has the knowledge to see you where you are in your career and thne take that to a level you didn’t know was possible. I simply wouldn’t be the DJ and Producer I am right now without his mentorship.

I first met Doorly at a secret villa after-party where he only had one USB and the decks were not linked so he asked me to play b2b with him. This was a dream come true for me and we've been mates ever since! The next time we met I was playing my first ever set at Cafe Mambo and he came and asked me what song I was playing and told me he liked my style. After that I started making music for him and his label Reptile Dysfunction, I also ended up playing back to back with him at Cafe Mambo. My first release on his label was called ‘Pawn The Monkey’ which was part of his Young UN's EP. This was then followed up with a remix of "Idris Elba” and “Back Talk, Paradise" before I released my first solo EP on vinyl which sold out almost immediately. Through Doorly’s help and guidance I've managed to release my music to the world and also DJ in unbelievable places like the legendary Pikes Ibiza.

Nicola Bear

I wouldn’t be who I am and where I am today if it wasn’t for Doorly believing in me and pushing and encouraging me to be a DJ. Whilst learning to beat match he was the one who said “one day it will just click” and it did, luckily enough after many hours! Through many all nighters collecting music together, (I am still taking credit for the Dizzee remix btw) he crafted my approach to playing and reading crowds and inspired me to be versatile in my sets and open to all music. His many years of experience, technical ability and the fact he is an all round good human makes him one of the best.

Retreat Itinerary

Nik Wilson - Booker & Promoter (UK / LA)

I’ve been booking Doorly over the past decade at leading nightclubs both in the UK and in the US. He’s renowned for being a technically gifted, versatile DJ, hence being in the rare position of being one of Pioneer’s “go to” guys whenever they’re testing and developing new equipment. He has a very caring nature, he thrives on helping and sharing his knowledge with others, be it aspiring young DJs or friends in the industry. He’s constantly approaching me with new emerging talent he feels should be on my radar to book at venues and he always keeps an eye out for business opportunities that would be beneficial to me. Working with Doorly is having someone who always has your back. He’s the perfect person to be tutoring and mentoring DJs at every level, from fledgling bedroom DJs, to those looking to break through to the next stage in their career.

Retreat Itinerary

Isiana I.D

Doorly is an inspiration in djing and production, it was such an honour to learn from a real legend in the industry. I couldn’t recommend Doorly enough, working with him has not only helped me to progress skills but he also opened the door for me in Ibiza. I will be going back to the island to work with Doorly again later in the year. He is a legend, a super talented DJ and producer who has remained humble, always positive and a great person to work with.

Retreat Itinerary

Josh Newsham

One of the nicest and grounded people I’ve met and considering the stature (and the busy schedule) he has, Doorly always finds time to reply to my messages and guide me in the right direction for the very best of help.

It's not just Doorly's in-depth knowledge that is a differentiator, it's the way that he engages with you across all subjects. This aides in making the whole process as efficient and effective as possible.

Doorly is a genius when it comes to coaching and mentoring. He extremely knowledgeable and easily adapts to your needs. He is very patient and always takes time to explain things properly. I can't wait to get more coaching with him at one of the Orbit retreats soon.
