A polish-born musician, who lives in New England, and makes lush, tropical soundscapes and inadvertently sings in Indonesian?
Such are the confusing, and wondrous, times we live in.
Derek Piotr is an electroacoustic composer, sound designer and electronic musician, working with a refined palate of noise, beats, field recordings and digitally manipulated voice, to create dense microverses of sound. He got in touch a few months ago, on the eve of releasing his newest album, Tempatempat, and agreed to make us an exclusive mix,a compendium of trance musicks from all over the world, international funk, noisy pop, and a preview from the new album, which is out now, on Monotype Records.
