DERRICK CARTER Australian Tour Dates

Derrick Carter

Illusive is excited to announce the Australian return of enigmatic Chicago house icon Derrick Carter. He’ll touch down for a whirlwind five-date tour over four days in late January. At the forefront of Chicago’s house movement since the mid-‘90s, he has since grown to one of the most recognised and respected names in the world of house – touring internationally near non-stop for almost two decades.

He began DJing at the age of nine, spinning disco records at family reunions. 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.

Though he doesn't spin much locally anymore, when he does he attracts large crowds. Most of the time he works in Europe, where he's become a cult celebrity among dance-music aficionados. 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.

Carter says that due to his growing notoriety his production talents have been requested by pop-oriented acts, but he prefers to remain underground. Although enthused about his own Blue Cucaracha label and a new UK-based imprint he runs called Classic, he's reluctant to offer much explanation of either label's MO, other than each releases records when the mood strikes him.

If past Australian tours are anything to go by, all dates are sure to sell out. Get in early.
