May is credited with shaping and steering house music's future. The Belleville Three tested the limits of electronic music and changed it forever. Call May a visionary - the music now commonly known as 'techno', is May's invention.
What makes a Derrick May DJ set so uniquely exceptional is his ability to intermingle genres, taking records of years past and making them work in today's crowded musical sphere. Take Icon, a May masterpiece, where the strings sound just as powerful and prevalent today as they did years ago.
May has performed around the globe for over two decades and honed his Transmattechno label into one of the most respected outputs in the world. A pioneer of techno, May produces Hi-Tek Soul or "George Clinton meeting Kraftwerk in an elevator." May makes techno poetry - hear him live and expect a night of unrefined emotion delivered with passion
May's ability to connect what is in his head with the feelings of what is on the dance floor is known the world over - his dedication to perfection is celebrated.
