Derek Menchan's new single sets the bar higher with unique dynamics
(Published: September 06, 2021)

Derek Menchan is an artist who recently managed to release a new single, "In the Summertime." This particular release seems like a perfect example of what Derek is all about, and the unique dynamics of this production definitely set the bar higher in terms of exploring different ideas and genre definitions.

The release has a stunningly modern sound, with a lot of clarity and excellent definition, highlighting every element in the mix very seamlessly.

"In The Summertime" stands out as a fantastic example of what it means to create exciting modern jazz, incorporating the classy arrangements of the genre with other influences, including soul, funk and even hints of R&B.

Derek Menchan is a true natural: you can tell that he is deeply feeling the music when he performers, and the music feels like it has a more genuine personal connection with the artist.

The track kicks off with a unique layer of percussive elements, inspired by Afro-beat and other diverse sounds. For those who might not know, this is a cover song, the original track being a famous hit by Mungo Jerry. Derek's version stays true to the heart and soul of the original, but it definitely brings a fresh perspective to the table, especially concerning the amazing flow of how the rhythmic components of the mix unfold.

Derek's vocals are deep and nuanced as well, bringing more soulfulness to the composition and really highlighting the appealing feel of the melodies, which are excellent and memorable, as you would expect from such an evergreen!

"In the Summertime" stands out as an excellent modern jazz music release, and it is a wonderful showcase of what Derek is all about as an artist. If you like music that is catchy, yet loaded with integrity and artistic vision, this one is definitely for you.

Find out more about Derek Menchan, and do not miss out on In the Summertime, which is currently available on some of the best digital music streaming platforms.
