Dervisis' new single 'Sync' has recently been premiered by CLASH Magazine and highlights the producers skill and talent for fusing genres and creating an exceptionally unique sound. Dervisis has been dubbed a “musical chameleon” as his use of darbuka pattern (an Arabic percussive instrument common among Balkan and Middle Eastern music) fused with inspired electronic beats as well as soulful vocals has taken his music to greater heights. "The Greek producer has also made remixes for producers such as Tendts and Liphemra (aka Phem), released two homemade LPs released by Greek label Inner Ear Records as well as a third and final self-titled album on Klik Records in 2016 respectively."

Nikolaos Dervisis who stems from Greece, Athens has grown up with an extensive list of punk influenced music and began playing his first gig at an anti-war anarchist festival and holds a Master of Music degree at Goldsmith, University of London. The producer is influenced by a multitude of different genres from the electronic, to percussions experimental quirks of Sun City Girls.

Dervisis produces via a laptop and makes music wherever he may feels most comfortable - whether it’s inside a tiny venue, or even just a friend’s home. Location is no restriction when it comes to producing music for Dervisis and his sound can be compared to an eclectic palette that continues to grow further and further down the experimental rabbit hole, comparable to artists such as Nicolas Jaar, Grimes or Mica Levi, with his sample heavy, vocal processed, electronic-pop antics. Inspired by global pop culture and Eastern Mediterranean influences in a world where both can co-exist, Dervisis has embraced this notion further by pursuing his own brand of ‘Eastern Post-Pop’ music.
