Splash Music Productions presents the debut album from Dimitris Dimopoulos – Take Me Out Tonight.
Dimitris Dimopoulos is an accomplished musician and composer who we had encountered on numerous occasions on the London scene. It was back in 2017 that we signed Dimitris and Sulene Fleming, releasing their critically-acclaimed album ‘Sparkle’ as ‘Dimitris and Sulene’.
Now Dimitris returns as a solo artist in his own right with his incredible debut solo album ‘Take Me Out Tonight’. When Dimitris first approached us to release this album, we already knew about his skill as a composer and musician and we were not surprised when he presented us with this wonderful set of 14 tracks.
From the soothing steel drum-accompanied ‘Own Pace’ to the 80’s inspired vibe of ‘This Feelin’’, this album is a testament to Dimitris’ skill and dexterity and we are proud to be releasing this to the world. So tune in and lose yourself to the wonderfully soulful vibe delivered by the magician that is Dimitris Dimopoulos.
Dimitris was born in Athens, Greece in 1984. He started his musical training at the early age of 6, taking piano and organ lessons. He attended an experimental music high school while he was taking music theory lessons including Harmony, Counterpoint and Fugue. After high school he was accepted at the Music Department of Philosophy University of Athens and was trained as a musicologist. In the meantime, he took the Yamaha Music Foundation Electone Grade 4 Performance and Fundamentals Organ Diploma and a Piano Diploma with Distinction.
In 2009 he graduated from the University and in 2013 he acquired his Composition Diploma under Joseph Papadatos with Honours.
In 2013 he moved to London to pursue a wider musical career. He very soon became known in the music business as an arranger, producer, pianist – keyboardist and composer able to work on any music genre. Later on he started teaching music both privately and in schools during the day and working as a session player in the night with
a very busy schedule. In his musical career, he has composed and produced music for almost any occasion. Music for films, advertisements, theatre, library music, orchestral music and music of many different genres consist some of his musical works.
In 2017 himself and Sulene Fleming released their critically acclaimed debut Soul album Sparkle’ as Dimitris & Sulene with Splash Music Productions and P-Vine Japan which was a top charting album (No1 on Sweet Rhythms Chart and No2 on UK Soul Charts). Most recently he composed the orchestral piece ‘No Borders’, a commission from the Athens State Orchestra, which was performed online internationally. Dimitris has also worked as a composer, arranger, pianist and keyboardist with international legendary artists such as Steve Gadd, Nathan East, Jeff Lorber, Don Grusin, Shakatak, Steve Nichol (Loose Ends), with many members of Incognito, Dexter Wansel, Rockie Robbins, Gwen Dickey (Rose Royse), Junior Giscombe, George Anderson (Shakatak), Natalia Lafourcade and many more.
His musical style can be described as a blend of Soul – RnB – Gospel and Fusion with many influences from different genres he has been exposed to throughout his musical career.
