Mint Pillow, aka, Derek Hixon, is a DJ/musician/artist from Boston, MA. For his Especial mix he explores the dichotomy of optimism & anxiety, inspired by the past year. He highlights a variety of music genres w/ a cerebral exploration of the high & lows of everyday life.

Pre-pandemic Mint Pillow had a DJ residency at State Park Bar in Cambridge and paintings in local galleries (FPAC Assemblage Art Space at the Envoy Hotel, Porter Square Gallery).

This May, through a grant from the Medford Arts Council and the Mystic River Watershed Association, Mint Pillow will be part of the "Sound On Mystic" audio installation which combines music, storytelling, spoken word, and ambience. As part of his interactive installation, Mint Pillow will be releasing a track, as well as a sample pack of ambient field recordings used in the track.

He premiered his second EP via Allston Pudding last spring and plans to release a new EP early this summer.
