Born and raised in the Pittsburgh metropolitan area, Derlee’s take on music very much embodies that of the region in which he hails – a region that takes great pride in its hard-working Blue Collar roots, as well as its transformation to a present-day leader in innovation. Derlee’s brand of “Chill-Hop/Soul” is a seamless blend of sample-based music, reminiscent of a much simpler time, meticulously woven together with smooth melodies and contemporary Hip-Hop/Electronica. As heartfelt as it is optimistic and forward-thinking, its honesty is evident by an abundance of soul.

In a time where beatmakers come aplenty and success is often measured by instant gratification through the social masses, Derlee strives to stay true to his sound as well as perpetuate his creative expression through his uplifting brand of electronic music.
