“Dimitri Veimar is the kind of musical discovery that, where I was a religious man, I would go to bed and pray for every night…” said Daniel Avery about the Dj. High praise indeed from an artist who knows all about making an impact. It was Dimitri’s remix of Avery’s ‘Water Jump’ that announced his talent to the world. Veimar constructed a rework that immediately won the heart of its original creator.
We had the chance to talk with Dimitri as he’s about to release a new EP, ‘Blaze’ on Tiga’s Turbo Recordings.

EG: Three things you can’t live without on the road when touring?
Dimitri Veimar: Definitely the noisy kids screaming on the plane, I love them. Equipment that never works and also a promoter who is totally wasted. It all just helps to make me stronger and more balanced!
