Derrick Brown

     Music Production Instructor for The Lab 

Derrick Brown was captivated by the hip hop culture and art form at a young age, watching his older brother DJ local parties and night clubs. By thirteen Derrick bought his first set of turntables and eventually took the path of his brother. Like many DJ's, Derrick made the transformation from DJ to producer and has been making beats for three years. Local producers, like Lab instructor, Mike Poratta, as well as larger scale producers like DJ Babu, have been major influences to Derrick's progression in music production. Derrick looks forward to working with MC's so he can take his production to a whole new level.
