Bijou is an artist who continues to push the boundaries of house music, infusing hip-hop with house and tech-house for his unique interpretation of a sound full of danceable grooves and devastating basslines, containing the energy to command festival stages and the depth to transport an intimate club to its dark underground origins.
The moniker of Arizona native Ben Dorman, Bijou has received support from Destructo, Don Diablo, Drezo, Malaa, Party Favor and Wax Motif, and with releases on highly coveted labels such as AC Slater’s Night Bass, Dr. Fresch’s Prep School Recordings and A-Trak’s Fool’s Gold, he has an impressive music catalogue that continues to expand exponentially.
Bijou is a consummate DJ and performer as well as a producer, having cut his teeth in the Arizona scene with hundreds of performances supporting major artists; he can expertly build a room as much as throw down hard-hitting productions.
Moving up to headlining performances this spring such as Webster Hall New York and Grasshopper Detroit to forthcoming festival slots across the country this summer including Phoenix Lights, Global Dance, Middlelands, Paradiso and Electric Zoo, his presence has been felt in every corner of the country.
With an arsenal of originals, remixes and collaborations about to be unleashed in the coming months he is one of the most exciting upcomers in the house scene on the verge of an impressive breakout year.
