DJ Derek (born Derek Morris 1942) is a Bristol-based DJ whose blend of 60s rocksteady, reggae, ska, dancehall and soul music has made him an icon for many in the industry, including a host of Jamaican producers and Massive Attack[1]. DJ Derek spent 10-18 years working as an accountant at Cadburys, yet gave it up to play reggae in the St Pauls area of Bristol [2]
Derek kindled his love for music as a washboard player in the 1950s and has played popular sets at many major festivals, including Glastonbury and The Big Chill. He MCs in Jamaican Patois while DJing[2], despite never having visited Jamaica. He picked up the accent from a Bristol based Jamaican barber, and it has since helped him be accepted in the black music industry [3].
In 2006, He released the album DJ Derek Presents… Sweet Memory Sounds, a compilation of some of his favourite tunes.

Heart's Tongue hosted a benefit gig at the Exeter Phoenix on Sunday 19th November. The Grandmaster of Reggae DJ Derek and the enigmatic DJ Sketchy spun sweet reggae and ska tunes - an evening of serious bumping and grinding.

61, yes! 64 years old (going on 16, but ageless: timeless, a veteran) ex-accountant Bristol based DJ Derek (sweet memory sounds) was introduced to Reggae and Ska music as it evolved back in the 60s through the Jamaican community and he ended up being a predominantly white man on a black man's dance scene back in the 60s and 70s. He mixes Jamaican patois and black music with very 'English' loves of real ale and quite formal wear; suited, or cardigan and tie being his favoured attire. He has a collection of 32,000 records.
