Dubai Eklektic Vol. 3 by Ravin & Nicholas Sechaud

Various Artists


Resident DJ at Buddha Bar, Paris
Born on the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean, Ravin was brought up by a traditional Hindu family. He moved to France as a teenager where he developed his childhood passion: music. He began working in a music shop in Paris, which cultivated his interest in dance music and club culture. This explains his musical style - a mix of the eastern airs of his youth combined with the electronic sounds of his new home, Paris.

At the end of the 1980s, Ravin became resident DJ at the Rex, Boy and Bains Douches, where he immersed himself in the exciting high tech wave that would engulf the world. 

The opening of Buddha Bar, Paris in 1997 marked a turning point in Ravin's musical direction. The magical atmosphere of this temple-like place harmonised perfectly with Ravin's personality and artistic taste. After more than a decade, Ravin still remains resident DJ at Buddha Bar Paris, and his growing international reputation has taken him to far off places where he regularly appears in some of the world's most cutting edge clubs. He has also played at Jean Paul Gauthier's Fashion Shows, private parties for Sting and for exclusive brands such as Bvlgari, Armani, and many more.  

While continuing to develop his DJ career, Ravin is also increasingly interested in the art of remixing and producing, and he's now solicited as one of the music world's greatest talents. Ravin has produced many well-known compilation series: Buddha Bar, Siddhartha, Fashion TV Club Session, Clubbing with DJ Ravin, in addition to his latest significant and remarkable selection "Best of Ravin". Ravin gained a double gold disc as author of Buddha Bar III, VI, VII, IX and released Amnesty International with Frank Nigel to commemorate its 40th anniversary. 

For Ravin, life is music.

Resident DJ at Buddha Bar, Grosvenor House Dubai 
French Canadian DJ Nicholas Sechaud is no stranger to the international club and fine dining scene. Currently resident DJ at the world-renowned Buddha Bar at Grosvenor House Dubai, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Nicholas has done a number of residencies across famed bars, clubs, lounges and restaurants worldwide, from Italy, Spain, Monaco, Turkey to Uzbekistan and the Philippines.

With a Vietnamese grandmother and French parents born in Vietnam, Nicholas grew up in a cosmopolitan family and lived in various countries such as Spain, Brazil, Greece, Egypt, Italy, USA and Canada. These experiences have inspired his musical roots and journey.

Nicholas spent his formative years in Italy, where he gained invaluable musical experience playing in restaurants, cafes and clubs - often all on the same day. 

In 2001, Nicholas collaborated with DJ Ravin for the first time at Amnesia, Chandelier Motel in Milan and from then on both of them went on to make many appearances at a number of leading venues and events across the globe. 

Nicholas has also played for a number of high profile designer brands such as GQ America, Versace and Gucci.

Notably to Nicholas' career is the time he spent in Ibiza, Spain - arguably the world's party capital. During this period he was the resident DJ at Villa Mercedes playing alongside famed Flamenco musician Paco Fernandez as well as the resident DJ at Café Mambo and Café Savannah. Due to his keen penchant for exotic and innovative sounds he became renowned as the 'Sunset Master' in Ibiza.

Nicholas' very unique and unmistakable music also resulted in taking up residency and guest starring on major radio stations such as Virgin Radio Istanbul alongside DJ Claude and DJ Jean Marc Challe, Radio Voyage in Istanbul, Radio Mundo in Equador and Sonica Radio Ibiza.

Nicholas is also a sound designer and creates the perfect atmosphere with his compilations for 5 star hotels and signature venues such as Grosvenor House, Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort + Spa, the illustrious modern Indian restaurant Indego by Michelin starred celebrity Chef Vineet Bhatia, Rhodes Mezzanine and Rhodes Twenty 10 by Michelin starred celebrity Chef Gary Rhodes, all located in the vibrant city of Dubai.
