Derek Dunbar first caught our attention with the Drippin’ Wet EP on Black Cherry Recordings in the summer of 2010. After dropping several more releases on top labels like Amenti and Golden State, Derek is now well-poised for his Large Music debut with his Disco Revival EP.
A native of Detroit who now resides in downtown LA, Derek brings many elements of his urban musical upbringing and influences and combines them with a laid-back, classic West Coast vibe. His style is very distinctive…combining elements of Funk, Soul, Disco, Hip Hop and House to create electrifying and authentic dance floor grooves.
This excellent collection of cuts gets started with Drop Back and Chump Change.two driving and heavy House tracks that feature just enough soulful chords to add a layer of depth and emotion. Up next Derek lays out a jaw dropping tribute to an all time Disco classic with Love Doctor’s Revival. Finally, Derek slows things down with a brilliant downtempo cut entitled Hey Girl that showcases his ability to create more than just straight House beats. Enjoy!
