Britain’s oldest DJ is hanging up his headphones and taking his final spin – at the age of 72.
Legendary DJ Derek has starred in music videos with EDM stars and played with groups.
But after decades at his decks the aging star is calling it a day.
He said: “This New Year’s Eve will be last gig I do there and will also be my last ever gig.
I turned 72 this month and while I’m reasonably healthy it’ll be nice to do some travelling without carting my gear around.”
Derek Morris, from St Paul’s, Bristol, gave up work as an accountant at chocolate makers Cadbury after 18 years to become a full time DJ.
He is known for his Disco collection and has played at some of the UK’s largest festivals including Glastonbury and The Big Chill.
Derek plans to spend his retirement travelling and visiting more of his beloved local pubs and listening to his favourite music at home.
