Derek was somewhere between the synths and the hooks when the beat began to take ahold. A native of New Jersey and NYC, Derek is a recent Pace University graduate looking to break into the music industry, who jumped on the chance to write for the Daily Beat. His musical influences are in a constant state of expansion and include everything from Charlie Parker to Gesaffelstein.
Daily Beat was launched in 2012 in a social media capacity to serve local artists under a boutique record label. Since its launch, Daily Beat has expanded into a leading global youth media company with representatives in over 20 countries.
