We are big fans of Israel‘s music scene and Dot is another example of its quality. Based in Middle East’s party center Tel Aviv, Dot plays and produces excellent deep house music. His debut album will be released in June on one of Israel’s finest imprints Legotek Records and is a musical masterpiece. Find out more about the man himself and listen to his magical tunes.
My name is Dotan Bibi but you might know me as Dot. I was born in Israel and grew up in Jerusalem. When I was a child my idol was not someone specific, because at that time artist and djs outside Israel were less known here and the local scene was very good in Jerusaelem back then. So I think we admired the local djs.. When I was 16 years old, I started to go out to parties in my hometown Jerusalem. It was the legendary Haoman 17 club. I was really hooked from the music that the djs played there and the vibe this music made in the room was unreal. It was then when I realised that I want to start djing too. So a year later my dad bought me my first turntables..it was a magic moment :) and decided to start collecting vinyls.. Since then I keep collecting music.
One of my best gigs I played was sisyphos Berlin. It was so much fun to almost play all you want and feel at the moment and to get a real feedbak from the crowd.
One of the best gigs I have been to was sushitech night in panorama bar a few months a go. I loved every dj that played there..actually it was a dream line-up!
Now I live in Tel Aviv with my girlfriend. In my house you can find everything I love and my refrigerator is usually full with chocolate. I enjoy doing sports and making music a lot. I can spend hours doing it. One of my favorite places to visit is Berlin, because its one of the most relaxing and liberal city i had been visit.
On weekdays I usually do music and on weekends I usually go to parties and also visit my family in Jerusalem.
My favorite song at the moment is Reaching by Fred P.. A film I watched lately and really liked was 12 Years a Slave. The last series I watched and loved was Breaking Bad.
I am very inspired by good warm weather. My dream is to just keep doing what i love and feel the most. My worst nightmare is to stop doing what I love.
I love my family and friends and hate hypocrisy.
I am addicted to coffee, I just cannot stop listening to good music.
I get totally fucked up, when I am mixing different kinds of alcohol. The next day I need to sleep a lot!
Local Suicide reminds me of good and warm people.
Tomorrow I will be probably tired from the weekend, so just relaxing. Next month keep doing music. Next year hopefully start touring around the world. In 10 years I hope to still play and and keep making music.
If I wasn’t a dj, I would be an athlete.
If my life was a Hollywood movie, the wolf of wall street would have the main role, because he’s a smart guy. If I could have sex with anyone, it would be Jennifer Connelly.
If I was a car, I would be a chevrolet camaro. If I was an animal, I would be a tiger. If I was a drug I would be mdma. If I was an invention, I would be a light bulb. If I was an object, I would be a record. If I could date myself, I would probably drive myself crazy.
If I could play with anyone it would be Ricardo Villaobos. I would like to collaborate with Move D.
If I had only one wish, it would be health.
I would never play music i don’t like for to earn more money, because I do not believe in lying to yourself.
My word of advice to the reader would be to keep believing in yourself.
