Established in Ireland in the early 90’s Derek has released many ground breaking and classic EPS for labels such as 'For Those That Knoe’, 'Revoke' & 'Why So Series'.
Born and raised in Westmeath, Ireland, Derek got an early taste for finely crafted melodic techno through compilations like Network’s ‘Bio-Rhythms’ and Warp’s ‘Pioneers of the Hypnotic Groove’. Having been a fan of bands such as Kraftwerk and Depeche Mode through his formative years, Derek felt drawn to this new sound coming from Detroit.
In 2001 Derek launched his own label ‘Trident Recordings’ and released the ‘Copper Beech e.p.’ (the only release to date) a collection of deep soulful techno, it has since become something of a collector’s item. Subsequent releases on ‘Digital Soul’ 'Headspace' 'Nice & Nasty' and ‘Geek Records’ further cemented Carr’s place amongst a new generation of techno producers that looked to combine soul and melody with electronic dance floor grooves.

I began making music in my late teens, round 1988, with a casio sampler and a tape machine.
