There’s always something coming out the speakers in the Ticket Arena office, so we thought we’d share some of the sonic splendours that soundtrack all of our hard work. Now a weekly feature that brings a different artist to the fore each Thursday, the TA Mix Of The Week scours the vaults for some of our favourite sets of old and keeps a beady eye out for the classics of the future, serving up a taste of the artists that make us happy to do what we do.
Boiler Room partnered with Whisky brand Ballantine’s last May for the third installment of their True Music series in São Paulo, Brazil, which featured music legend Derrick Carter. With a collective of tracks within his eclectic mix that brought about elements of house, soul, jazz and old-school disco, this DJ legend has always known how to get his audience into the party groove. This pioneer of dance music demonstrates top-class DJ skills throughout his live set by putting his classic house twist on modern pop anthems from the likes of Childish Gambino and Cardi B, as well as bringing a number of club bangers that promise to inspire movement on the dance floor, including ‘Can’t Hold It’ by Detroit Swindle and Mop Mop’s ‘So High’. With tour dates and festival appearances across Europe that have made him a minor celebrity amongst dance music aficionados, Derrick Carter is a name worth boasting for years to come.
