NTFRMHRE is Looking For “Somebody Like You”
Hailing from Philadelphia, NTFRMHRE (born as Derrick Suragh), is an EDM producer who is gaining support due to his electrifying rhythms and heartfelt melodies. Suragh’s love for Trance, Techno, Big House, and other electro music styles has caused him to shift from his previous music beat making styles of hip-hop, reggae, and r&b into the EDM genre. NTFRMHRE (as in “Not From Here”) is Suragh’s music alter ego, becoming the “yang” personality of his craft. He is currently working on his debut EP which will be released independently very soon, and now we have his first single “Somebody Like You” featuring Scott Thomas.
Fusing elements of progressive house and trance, NTFRMHRE does a skillful job of crafting a tune that is not only catchy but displays some creativity and uniqueness as well. “Somebody Like You” is a feel-good track that can lift your spirits with its quirky percussion and smooth synth work. The vocals of featured artist Scott Thomas ties the whole tune together well. While the track is certainly catchy, it does lack a bit of edge and grit to make it go that extra mile. However, it will be interesting to see if NTFRMHRE can continue to develop his sound in his upcoming album. Only time will tell what is in store for this up and comer.
While producing is his main focus right now, Derrick is still currently pursuing his love of music in other ways. He’s the director of the percussion program for PAL Philadelphia. He works with the children of Philadelphia to help inspire them and pass along his love for music. He’s also a musician and composer for the NFL Philadelphia Eagles drum line. With the release of his debut EP in spring 2017, Derrick is looking forward to touching and inspiring EDM fans across the globe.
