deRijk - The Realm - /
Midlands bred and Bristol based producer deRijk (pronounced 'duh-rike,' like bike!) never shies away from dark, powerful melodies. His productions effortlessly flip through the playbooks of lo-fi, techno, ambient and breakbeat to name a few, but his sound is difficult to pin down. In his own words, he makes "Dad House." We're not sure exactly what he's talking about--this lad has an ear for a club banger too. Thoroughly on the deeper side of the house spectrum, a deRijk tune is always best appreciated on a truly fat club system.
