Canadian-born with global influences, DJ Doran honed his craft in what is arguably the nightlife and electronic music capital of the world, Barcelona, Spain. Doran started his career in investment banking and after many years as a global traveler and club-goer decided to follow his dreams and make his passion for music a reality.
Doran now splits his time between New York City and Barcelona and is a regular on the nightlife circuit, playing in some of Europe’s most renowned venues including Opium Mar, Shoko, and Mellow Beach.
