Derrick has been widely acknowledged as one of the better DJs of the world. With innovative productions, consummate technical skills and an effortlessly joyful attitude of rocking a crowd, his impact has infiltrated throughout the spectrum of dance music. Although known as one of the key players of Chicago’s ’90s house music wave, he actually began DJ’ing at the age of nine, spinning disco, funk and blues records at family reunions. So naturally, he often travels outside standard club tastes, incorporating bits of disco, soul, jazz, new wave, and whatever else catches his fancy. When asked to describe himself and his influences he answers, “They come from many places. Basically all kinds of stuff. Including, but not limited to, everything that currently exists. Really though? I’m just a guy that plays music sometimes, makes music sometimes, and has a bunch of dogs that keep the stress away. Also, I like to keep myself pretty invisible. You may think I’m somewhere, but I’ve already left.”
TRUE ROMANCE/ GER
Tensnake’s first taste of critical acclaim came with the release of his “In the End (I Want You to Cry)” EP on the label Running Back in 2009. The EP was voted #1 on djhistory.com’s end-of-the-year list, and was the driving force behind Tensnake’s breakthrough success.
Launching even further onto the scene with his track ‘Coma Cat’ in 2010, Tensnake smashed dance floors worldwide and earned himself a name as a game-changing dance pioneer. Called “highly precise modern disco” by the New York Times and “infectious” by Idolator, Spin said that “Tensnake helped pave the way for the current deep- house revival.” In 2013, Tensnake was asked to deliver an Essential Mix by BBC Radio1’s Pete Tong, thus further cementing his status within the scene.
