Last Monday we got the devastating news that one of our best friends and mentors in London had passed away. More than a week later looking at pictures of Derren still make me cry. Derren was one the warmest, most genuine people I’ve ever met and his love of music and especially disco taught us so much. Before there was Crew Love, there was the Wolf + Lamb Experience, all thanks to Derren booking the first label showcase at Red Gallery in London back in May 2010. When we showed up at the party, the only lighting was a standing lamp and a florescent “this must be the place sign” and we knew immediately that we’d found the perfect partner for our parties in London. Derren continued to host us through the years, for our DJ Kicks tour, for an all night set at his legendary “A Night With…” party, for our first Soul Clap Records showcase in London. Every time he he was the host with the most and his love for the party and the artists allowed us to have some of our best performances. But when Derren really touched us was after the parties ended. Chatting, giving advice, telling jokes and of course playing incredible disco music while he (and everyone else) danced around the room. Over the years we featured two mixes from Derren on our podcast and it seems appropriate that we celebrate his life by re-posting them now so we can all listen, dance and celebrate Derren’s incredible life and love. We’ll miss you Derren!
like a midsummers dream filled with EFUNK, we need to be pinched to believe this Crew Love Barcelona ’14 after video! the sun, the vibes, the dancing, the love… we’re so lucky to have so many fans to spread the Crew Love waves around the world!
You asked for it, and we’re back on the the white isle with our funkiest party yet. This September we’re touching down for the first time at our new natural Ibiza habitat, the Pikes Pool. And we’ve got even more to celebrate: the release of our new single, Misty featuring Robert Owens. Real music, no cover, barbecue, smiles and of course that funk that only Soul Clap can bring to your trunk.
“More than a sound, I have an ethos. Sounds come and go, but what is lasting is a theme or idea or core value. I think there is more of an overarching ethos of open mindedness and it has a deep sound.” – Nick Monaco
