For our 173rd entry to the Local Selection Mix Series, we welcome Derv. The Dublin based DJ, promoter and co-founder/resident of parties Crane Club and Hidden Love has gifted us with a sensational mix of all things bouncy and booty bass. Strap yourself in. This gets crazy.
Derv boasts recent club supports for international heavyweights X Club, X-Coast and DJ Slugo for their stellar Dublin shows, as well as playing an assortment of Dublin gigs for a range of different parties. Some of these include Crane Club, Hidden Love, Slither, Reboot, Human Error, LTDC (Loose Tooth Dental Club) and more. It is safe to say that you can expect to hear a lot more from Derv in the very near future.
Derv possesses a mixing style that is swift as she tends to mostly lean into high tempo ghetto-tech tracks. Derv aims to achieve versatility in her mixes and sets through the genres and sounds that she plays, however she mostly focuses on encapsulating sounds of ghetto-tech, ghetto-house and electro whilst wrapping these genres around hard-hitting techno tracks, as well as often using sounds within the house, trance and gabber genres.
This mix combines twenty jacking ghetto-tech, techno and trance tracks into an hour of high-energy mixing with tracks from some of Derv’s biggest inspirations. Some of which include Von Riu, DJ Fuckoff, Mell G, DJ Assault and Jensen Interceptor. You can also expect tracks from talented Irish producers Ventolin (Oisin Murray) and Fiddy1 (Stephen Burke). The recording lies at just under an hour in length, which showcases Derv’s varied yet unique taste in a truly eloquent way. Sensational.
