This Summer 2015, Salta Dois is in Ibiza presenting once again his distinct & irresistible Dj set which combines the spirited rhythms of South America with the percussive Electronic music from Africa, alongside the live show of tribal percussionists, afro-samba dancers and fire performers.
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.
The South American tour continued in Colombia’s electronic capital, Bogotá, where he quickly established a name for himself, sharing booth with the top Tropical Bass #badboys in Colombia like...
Dj Vitola (Miller & Shock Dj Mashup 2011 Winner), Dj PHO (Red Bull Thre3style 2011/12 Champion of Colombia) & Juan Mr Moombah (Llorona Records) and played in some of Bogota´s most respectable clubs, Kea Bar, La Villa, Latora 4Brazos, Bogaloop e InVitro. 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 big plans, including expanding his Boom Da Panela brand, which has an established regular radio show on HFM Ibiza & In The Mix Brazil.
This Summer 2015 Boom Da Panela will become a brand new audiovisual show that combines Salta Dois´s electronic and non-electronic music full of contagious tribal & carnival rhythms from Africa, Brasil & Latin America, alongside exotic African & Brazilian dancers, fire performers and the live percussion from Ibiza´s best percussionists. This is a show with a very distinctive flavour which is already known for the unforgettable energy that it always creates on clubs, vilas & pool parties around the island.
