The fourth Feed the DJ mix comes from Derek C. It’s a ride through house rhythms and can be characterised as Detroit in a suit, very deep - very dapper.
Derek C is at www.soundcloud.com/derekc and he said it’s hard to sum up his sound “ it depends what mood I’m in,” he joked.
“I’m influenced by house and electronica
“I move through IDM through Detroit techno all the way through to traditional jazz.
“I’ll listen to anything that sounds good, Ill take what I like and work with it.
“I’ve got some latin influences from my Venezuelan wife, so that gives me a better feeling for rhythms.
“You just have to watch them dance to understand.”
Derek C Fed the DJ a variety of down tempo, house and techno and, “a few tracks of my own,” he said.
His production is tight, but how and what does he use to make the magic?
“The what is easy. I use Logic Pro 9 and ever since I bought the Novation SL2 midi controller, it’s freed up my creativity."
