It’s taken 39 releases to come full circle, but after debuting on Thoughtless with our inaugural EP, Brooklyn’s Derek Marin is finally back in the fold with “While She Sleeps” – and it was definitely worth the wait.

How deep can a track be yet still maintain undeniably wide appeal? Derek explores just that with his title track, a breathless deep house stunner sure to send shivers through even the hottest summer dance floors. A rather large bass line carries the track forward, inviting everyone into the rhythm with its subsonic bounce, as resonant chords set the tone for the iconic melody to unfurl in the break: pure magic.

Pete Grove enters the fray with not one but two solid remixes, the first employing subtle latin percussion to impel the original’s housier elements with enhanced drive and focus – while the second favors his trademark buzzing synth cuts to give it a slight electro feel.

“Rakimuse” constitutes the flip side, melding addictive low-end rhythms with swirling chords and mysterious female intonations for yet another burner.

Finally, Derek reinterprets “Rakimuse” under his own Modest D alias, highlighting dubby edges while adding a haunting Rhodes line for a somewhat muted yet no less potent affair, perfect for the end of a long night out.

If she’s sleeping through this, I hope she’s having amazing dreams – because she’s got no idea what she’s missing…
