DJ Derek Turner

On January 23rd 2011 Derek Turner received a random hi-5 from the one & only Kaskade as he made his way to the booth at the Greenwood Hotel in Sydney. Derek took this as a sign to take the leap from being a musician to a DJ. After a mere 2 weeks of practicing at home he ventured out for a nerve-wracked but successful audition and was booked for a paying gig a couple weeks later.Fast forward to today, Derek now has hundreds of hours on the decks under his belt, including several ongoing residencies & also ‘originals only’ performances – always gripped by an infectious passion for music that he could not hide even if he tried to. Derek is comfortable with all energy levels and situations. Genre-wise Derek enjoys a variety of flavors from deep / tech / house, to bangers & bass music, and will often blend some of his original music in for good measure

“Mate thank u so much for your hard work yesterday. It was exactly what we wanted. U did a great job”

~Chris Osbourne, February 2015

“Derek, We really appreciate all the time and energy you put in to sourcing all our requested songs for our wedding reception, at The grounds of Alexandria in February, you played them all in a order that created the exact atmosphere we had in mind. You were a dream to deal with, we initially contacted you months earlier (momentarily we decided to use an friend and a iPod) then we changed our minds and phoned you in a panic at the last minute to check if you were still free. It was the way you genuinely wished us the best when we were going to use our friend, that your kind hearted nature stuck in our minds as good people are hard to come by. We decided we didn’t need to meet in person until the night as your professional nature had us completely at ease. Derek you are a true artist and a genuinely great guy, we recommend you to anybody. Your prices are way too fair for the service you provide! – keep rocking! Love Shannon and Christian XOXOX”

~Janis Du Fresne, March 2015
