Derrick Carter, Rouzbeh, Punch Junkies, Gilles, Yienie, Ace & Guns feat. Handywork, High Spies, Tone
Temple Fridays presented by Rock It Science, Remedy, and Back2basics brings you one of the world's biggest forces in House Music: Chicago's Derrick Carter. Derrick never disappoints, with a rigorous schedule that has him constantly performing at major events all over the world.
One of the pinnacles of Chicago house music's '90s wave, Derrick Carter began DJ’ing at the age of nine, spinning disco records at family reunions. Born and raised in the western suburbs, Carter was into music from a young age, but during his teens Chicago's house scene sucked him in for good. Before long Carter became a strong presence in the city's underground dance scene. Derrick’s sets are rooted in house, but he freely travels outside club tastes, seamlessly incorporating old-school disco, soul, jazz and whatever catches his fancy. Several mix albums have appeared, including Cosmic Disco on MixMag and Pagan Offering on Pagan. Carter has also founded two labels (Blue Cucaracha and Classic). Since then pioneering, innovative tracks and consequent critical acclaim have repeatedly marked Derrick out as once of the most important players in Dance music.
