Derek B 1965 - 2009

1980's hip hop star and producer Derek B has died of a heart attack at the criminally young age of 44.  The star is best known for his 1988 hits 'Goodgroove' and 'Bad Young Brother' but was previously and subsequently a respected DJ, producer and prominent member of the UK hip hop scene.

Thoughts go out to his family and friends.  Here's the man himself with his best-remembered hit...


  1. did you know he co-wrote the Anfield Rap ?

    RIP Derek B

  2. I may have done at one time - please tell me he came up with the following...

    So come on Bobby Robson, he's the man
    'cause if anyone can, Macca can
    Macca-can... Macca-can... Macca-can... Macca-can...
