DJ Mix – Derrick May (USA) on BBC 6 Music 6 Mix (Audio)

Derrick May performing at Be Club, Auckland, New Zealand in 2010.

Hey y’all,

My main man, Mr. Derrick “Mayday” May, has presented a new DJ mix on BBC 6 Music 6 Mix.

Here’s what BBC Music 6 has to say about it:

6 Mix celebrates the May Day weekend with a brand new mix from techno pioneer Derrick May. Derrick - best known for his 1987 dance anthem Strings of Life under the name Rhythim Is Rhythim - has been an iconic name on the techno scene for over twenty years, DJing worldwide to a devoted fan base. Hailing from Detroit, Michigan, May's work - alongside fellow DJs Juan Atkins and Inner City's Kevin Saunderson - has provided the catalyst for a number of producers worldwide. In his latest 6 Music show Derrick plays a selection of tunes which have influenced and inspired him including tracks by Brian Eno, Peven Everett and Model 500. There's also a brand new 'Mayday' club mix featuring hot new material from his label - Transmat Recordings - and a selection of tracks of Derrick's favourite album of 2010 so far; Gil Scott Heron's 'I'm New Here.'

Now, you can listen to Derrick’s new mix via the link above or, if you’re feelin’ a little naughty, you can download it if you look around the Net a little bit for it. *hint, hint*

Kind regards
