RJ Rohit caught up with Derek Mathias, an Indie musician from Bangalore.
The Bengaluru pianist and producer amassed a number of instrumental songs during the lockdown, for the sole purpose of pure artistic expression.
As part of his joint project ‘Derek & The Cats’, Mathias is ready to share those songs with the public after letting them accumulate digital dust for two years.
His recently released debut single is the emotive instrumental jazz track titled ‘Soul,’ which oozes exquisite musicianship, solos and more. The song also includes keyboardist Anand Murali, saxophonist Gautam David, guitarist Adesh Vinod, bassist Vishal Varier and drummer Jason Sharat in addition to Mathias on piano.
‘Derek & The Cats’ recently released a follow-up track, ‘Morocco,’ along with a music video.
