Derrick May (US)
May has recorded some of the first & most original and influential techno tracks of all time. He is, alongside Juan Atkins & Kevin Saunderson, a part of “The Belleville Three,” and they are considered the inventors and creators of Detroit Techno. The Belleville Three have worked under many different names and titles. Derrick May saw great success under the name Rhythim is Rhythim, his alias when he released his landmark “Strings of Life.” He’s is one of the best DJs alive, charismatic figure behind the mixer, a dance floor feeling like no other and with a storyline going all the way back to when it all started in the 80’s, he sure has the right back catalogue to create an amazing vibe.
