Derek Marin – Outside In EP w/ Funk Shuei remix(free download)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 22, 2010 by dk

ARTIST: Derek Marin
TITLE: Outside In EP
LABEL: Dialtone
RELEASE DATE: October 27th, 2010

Free download of “Funk Shuei edit”

Derek Marin is the newest signing on Dialtone. This new EP called Outside In has 3 strong originals and an edit from Dialtone owners Funk Shuei. Derek has already had a spate of successful releases on Thoughtless, Plastic City and Subtrak. “Outside In” is a minimal house track fueled with drums. “Scratch Off Ticket” has an amazing techno-ish vibe with his particular blend all over the place. “Unbirthday Dub”, like the name says, is a deep, dubby original perfect for those early sets or after-hours. And last but not least, “Outside In (Funk Shuei Edit)” is minimal house in all its splendor with a techy groove and their cut out vocals trademark. Hope you like it as much as we do!

Derek Marin- ‘While She Sleeps’ w Pete Grove and Modest D remixes on Thoughtless+free download

Posted in News, Promotions with tags , , , , , , , , on June 27, 2010 by dk

Thoughtless presents… TLM039: Derek Marin – While She Sleeps EP w/remixes by Pete Grove and Modest D.

TLM039: Derek Marin – While She Sleeps
with Pete Grove and Modest D remixes

Label: Thoughtless Music
Format: Digital EP
Release date: July 13, 2010

Free download While She Sleeps
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…
