This Summer 2016, Salta Dois is in Ibiza presenting his distinct & irresistible Dj set which combines the spirited rhythms of South America with the percussive Electronic music from Africa.
Formerly known as Jimmy Valencia, Salta Dois started playing Hip-Hop & Reggaeton in 2001 at London’s renowned Vestax Dj Academy. After playing in Central London’s Urban circuit for a few years, in 2007 Jimmy started experimenting with more Latin & Afrotropical sounds & became part of the dynamic London Urban Latin scene, performing several times at Europe’s biggest Urban Latin party, La Bomba, regularly held at Ministy of Sound & Pacha London. Also during his career in London, Jimmy Dj’ed on some exclusive events for international brands including Nike, Corona Beer, Channel 4, 55DSL, Selfridges, & Topshop.
In 2011, Jimmy decided to pack up his records and head down to South America with the goal of learning from the exotic electronic & local music scenes, to incorporate new sounds & flavours into his already eclectic Tropical Dj set.
His first stop was Brazil, where he became resident DJ of the most popular Latin party in Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro. Jimmy also played from the top of a Favela during New Year´s Eve and performed in two of the most respected clubs in São Paulo, Lab Club and Neu Club.

He also worked with Red Bull at Rock al Parque XVIII, which is the biggest outdoor festival in Latin America!
Back in Europe and with a record box packed with unique world tribal beats, the globetrotting Salta Dois has now plans of stablishing himself as the only Afro Deep & Tribal House Dj on Ibiza, as well as becoming one of the most popular World music Dj on the local scene, having played already at Las Dalias, Malanga Café, Imagine and Ibiza Roots Festival.
