Born in Argentina, 1953 Alfredo Fiorito lived in his native town of Rosario until the age of 23.In 1976 he left his homeland and immigrated to Spain, ending up a few months later on the island that would shape the rest of his life-Ibiza. One year later, his son Jaime was born and for the next few years Alfredo dedicated himself both to his child and to various job roles including fashion designer, candle maker, delivery man and barman, amongst others, All of these were a far cry from his original trained profession, as Journalist in his native Argentina. Apart from the aforementioned variety of jobs, Alfredo’s life had always had some connection with music, in particular, as music critic on a newspaper and concert producer. From 1982, this interest was stepped up, as Alfredo decided to try his hand at DJing. It was a good move, and one that today, some 20 years later; he views with the same enthusiasm. In his first year he combined his new skill of DJing with that of Barman in a bar in Ibiza Port. It was whilst multi-tasking in this same bar, known in those days as Bebop, that he was approached to DJ at Amnesia. At that time, the club was renowned as the most underground venue in Ibiza, since then, of course, it has gone on, due in part to Alfredo, to become one of the most famous night clubs in the world. Alfredo played his first session in the super club in 1983 in an event called Imposible, which didn’t quite attain the success hoped for… Thankfully for the entire dance music industry as we know it, and not to be outdone, Alfredo didn’t give up.
Amongst other international awards and recognition that Alfredo has received throughout his lengthy career, he won DJ of the Decade in internationally known DJ Magazine in 1988. He was also the first DJ ever to receive an award at the Middem Awards in Cannes. More recently, in the 2005 Ibiza DJ Awards, he was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award, clearly proving his status in the Music Industry.
Jaime’s first contact with electronic music started at the age of 14, listening to the mixture of pop, rock, reggae and early dance beats that his father was playing in the legendary Amnesia Club Ibiza in the late 80′s. Ever since then, Jaime has enjoyed the rare privilege to meet, absorb, and experience all facets of this incredible movement, at the source of its beginning. Experiencing this first hand at a very young age set him on his own path of musical discovery. Like many of his generation, the fresh dance beats of MTV’s predecessor; the Music Box, also laid firm foundations for a wider knowledge to be built upon. Music from dance and hip-hop artists like Neneh Cherry, De la Soul or Sagat soon led to digging for early house beats from Lil Louis, Jamie Principle or Frankie Knuckles but Jaime’s first contact with the dance floor was 10 years later, in 1998 in a small in the old “Divino” club in the harbor of Ibiza.
A couple of years later, Mike & Claire from Manumission invited him to play for the Millennium party in Privilège and the “Carry on” after party in Space what turned out to be a fantastic collaboration but also the first years playing together with his father on the roofless terrace from 2001 to 2004. Living and studying in Switzerland in that time, Jaime started a collective of dj’s under the name of “Urban Circus” throwing illegal parties in the old Industrial area of Lausanne. In 2003 a move for love to London snared him a job at the respected Phonica Vinyl store in Soho, local platform where he started to be recognized and played for different UK promoters like secretsundaze or back to basics. In 2006 Jaime decided to find his roots and moved back to Ibiza playing regularly in spots as club “Underground”, the secretsundaze beach parties and the legendary “We love” nights on sundays at Space, Spending his time now dj’ing between Europe and Ibiza, Jaime continues to consistently unravel sets that span earthy transatlantic house music to European Techno.
