Darren Ockert's busy, modern life

The UK, via Miami, electro-house man is one to look out for this year

01.18.2013

If you haven't heard of Darren Ockert by now, then it's about time you did. The English singer/songwriter has quite an extensive list of credits to his CV, and you can dance pretty hard to all of them.

A finalist in the UK Songwriting Contest for his song "Force of Gravity" (from The Rain from London EP) and a semi-finalist for his other compelling works -- "I've Moved On," "This Modern Life (1984)" (from The Rain from London EP) and "Celebrity du Jour" -- Ockert was awarded a RightOutTV Music Award for Best Dance Song for "This Modern Life (1984)." His video for "Celebrity du Jour" was in high rotation on MTV and Logo's NewNowNext PopLab.

Ockert is a very busy man, to say the least.

The Miami-based indie-pop darling released his first album, Anything Is Possible, in 2005 and is currently completing his second album, Short Story Long, which will be released this summer. The first single, "You Don't Know Me," will be out in March.

Ockert’s latest four-track self-produced EP, The Rain from London, is pure electro-pop drenched in emotional synths and classic emotive vocals. Each track feels custom-made for specific moments in life. You can listen to the tracks from The Rain from London below.

Be prepared to see much more from Darren in 2013. He is the subject of a documentary, being made by Merciless Studios, which will be submitted to film festivals later this year. Plus, he will be hitting the road in support of the EP and forthcoming album in the US and Europe. — Robert Ladic
