Defected Presents House Masters - Derrick Carter Mixtape.
Derrick Carter (born October 21, 1969) is an American DJ, record producer and musician from Chicago, Illinois. He is regarded as one of the best underground house key players currently active and is popular in Europe. Carter was born in Compton, California and raised in the western suburbs of Chicago, IL. After practicing his DJ skills for a number of years as a teenager in his bedroom (bedroom jock), he then made the definitive step into the Chicago house scene.
His debut single "Love Me Right" appeared in 1987, just after he graduated from college. Another single ("Symbols and Instruments" as Mood) appeared in 1989, but the Chicago house scene faded soon after, leaving Carter and other artists with few to play for except themselves. Thanks in part to Cajmere's and Felix Da Housecat's respective labels (Relief, Radikal Fear), Chicago house made a comeback during the mid-'90s and began to offer impressive newcomers in addition to the old guard
