22.5.10 Derrick May (Transmat) & Giles Armstrong (EC)
We welcome this month's namesake, Derrick May, to pop his Test cherry on Saturday the 22nd, who will be taking over the Test basement for a 4 hour set..
Part of the first wave of Detroit DJs and producers who introduced techno to the world, May classics like 'It is what It is', 'Nude Photo' and 'Strings of Life' were played in every dance club, from the Music Institute in Detroit to the Asylum, an institute in Dublin.
According to techno folklore, May took all his clothes off and cried for a day after making 'Strings of Life'.
This might explain why he hasn't been back in the studio since the early 90s, but there is no doubt his catalogue still provides inspiration for techno makers and DJs worldwide.
Support comes from ex-EC big man Giles Armstrong, who won't be crying, even though it's not his party. The daddy (G) of Dublin techno will provide the deep house sounds for Del Boy's classic Detroit set from the comfort of his Clondalkin Traktor.
Don't miss this chance to check two legends destroy the Twisted Pepper...
Rave to the grave!
