dpm is synonymous with the sounds of the underground. Having emerged from the early days of afterhours, Derek Poul Mathiesen aka dpm has developed a meticulous ear for quality music.
He spent his young DJ years digging through countless record shops, here and abroad, to showcase the freshest wax of his flavor to the YEG crowd, with early residencies at Twilight and Y Afterhours. This passion for selection propelled dpm’s DJ style. His break beats and techno-influenced roots eventually gave way to the filtered house and disco infused funk most associate dpm with today.
These days, Derek’s graced the decks at festivals including Shambhala, Astral Harvest, Motion Notion and Zion Noiz. He’s redefined the electronic music community by creating unprecedented events with Wheelhouse Productions. And finally, he always… always takes time to busts it on the D-floor.
With dpm, the music is timeless with the dance floor, seemingly endless.
