Doorly cut his teeth in his native Huddersfield, running his own party and booking the likes Armand Van Helden, Fatboy Slim, Erol Alkan, Annie Mac, 2 Many DJs and eventually Pete Tong, who was so impressed by his ability behind the decks that he offered him a Live Radio 1 Essential Mix direct from the club. Following this seal of approval, Doorly’s gig schedule took on a life of its own, with DJing in Time Square New York and touring regularly alongside Fatboy Slim just some of the highlights. At the same time as touring, Doorly was working hard honing his craft in the studio, establishing himself as a versatile, in-demand producer. Remix work for an enviable list of A-list acts followed, with imaginative reworkings of tracks from Kanye West, The Prodigy, Dizzee Rascal and Basement Jaxx setting Doorly on a different creative level to many of his peers. In 2012 Doorly relocated to Los Angeles, California. From this base he launched a diverse array of his own parties, ranging from sunshine house and disco gatherings on the rooftops of Austin at SXSW & Miami with Skream and Jackmaster, to 2000 capacity ‘secret’ warehouse parties in Downtown LA. From humble beginnings, these Doorly & Friends Events have gone on to establish residencies at Ministry of Sound (London), AIR (Amsterdam), Sound (Los Angeles) and Canal Mills (Leeds), Pikes Hotel & Sankeys (Ibiza), Sisyphos (Berlin) plus regular parties in Miami, San Francisco, Asia and across the world including a mansion party at Coachella at which Disclosure played after their main festival appearance. In 2014 he achieved what he had been threatening to for some time, topping the Beatport overall chart with his Shadow Child collaboration ‘Piano Weapon’. In that same year, Doorly & Cajmere’s ‘The Way’ sat at No.1 overall on Traxsource and in the top 10 of the Beatport house chart for over a month, with his releases being hammered by the likes Maceo Plex, Jamie Jones, Agoria, Annie Mac to name a few.
