  2. Hey Derek ..

    I am a avid follower of your work dude ! i gave u a letter outside Transformation in Durban after your set. I loved the fact that you always closed with PVD – We are Alive !

    After a while .. you got off the radio .. and my friday nites were never the same .. no more sessions and sat nites were different. I still remember the live Knebworth sets and have the Ibiza Sets

    Heard that Zoe is doing her own thing now .. Hope things are good ..

    Hopefully We Hear More Of YOu DTB !!

    Have a nice one .. most of all , Have a safe one ..
    Cheers !

  6. Heyup,

    I spent so many nights enjoying the amazing sets you did and boy, do I miss your music over here in the UK. It’s just not the same and neither are the people. Keep doing what you do, you’re ace!!! Just listening to your podcast and remembering how much I enjoyed clubbing in SA and also remembering some very special friends that I used to go clubbing with.

    Don’t ever dissapear!!!

    Cheers, Claire x x x

  9. Hiya DTB,

    Just a message from your biggest American fan, well I mean fan in America, as I am all South African. I completely miss the clubs in SA, partying to the great sounds you produce, here in the USA, they have no clue what real clubs are about.

    I only survive this is because of sound republic web radio and the podcasts. My car has an ipod adapter, I plug in my iPhone and listen all the time, no need for local radio here, and I tune into webradio everyday.

    Keep up the good work, never stop the excelent music.

  14. Hi there Derek,

    I was wondering if you (or anyone) could tell me where I might source The Ministries of Sound Clubbers Guide 2001 (Mixed by Derek the Bandit) CD?

    Help? Anyone?

  15. Cutting things short: I cry like a baby when you was doing your last show on 5fm because for me a ,Peddie village boy , was a kiss good bye to trance that I fallen for it through you and your show there was no other way to hear from you that I know of . I even own the World of Dance 6 compilation cd . Derek i hope to hear on airwaves play some of the songs i still remember :michael woods -close to the end, paul van dyk – Times of our lives, ferry corsten – Rock your body rocks .I promise myself that when I earn a wage I would buy your compilation if still on stock. “There is a time for us to hold on “
