Derek Marin, American House and Techno music producer/DJ, was born Derek Richard Maringelli in Manhattan, New York in 1974. Coming from a musical household, his father, Paul Joseph Maringelli, influenced and nurtured Derek's natural talent and passion for music from an early age. He began playing drums at age nine and by the age of fourteen, he was playing in a number of bands. The Techno rage that took over NYC in 1991 inspired Derek to step out from the background and create his own style and music. He honed his production skills, recording, mixing and editing in the studio. As a result, he has been recognized as a top DJ/Producer in New York's electronic music community since 1994. His outstanding creativity and style in remixing has gained him releases on many well respected underground electronic labels around the world. In 2001, after winning Mixer Magazine's "Best New DJ" award in 2001, Marin established his own imprint, Faucet Music, with sub labels Modest Music and Sideviewer Records. He is best known for his productions on the Tech House labels Plastic City, Intrinsic Design, Matterform as well as his unofficial remixes of Daft Punk, Depeche Mode, Junior Boys and his productions under the alias Sideview. In 2009, Derek was invited to release "Bright Lights, Dark Room" on Subtrak Records. The limited vinyl release including remixes by The Pale, Hans Bouffmyhre and Osborne was heralded by MBeat as "one of this summer's most exciting releases" and Bruce Tantum of Time Out NY said Derek's "original mix is a lean and angular, Detroit-tinged track full of inventive, unexpected twists and turns." Since this release, he has joined Subtrak as head of A & R where his talent for finding new and exciting sounds/artists will be put to good use.
