Friday 13th December #DerrickMay (DETROIT, USA)

  • Basement 7 Macquarie Place Sydney Australia (map)


Here we go. Technically our first party for the summer and we're going LARGE. It's the long awaited second coming of DERRICK MAY to Picnic!!

So the dude finished high school with his buddies Juan Atkins and Kevin Saunderson, the "Belleville Three", and happened to invent techno. Thanks Derrick! Of the handful of people who can legitimately be called Detroit legends, he's well and truly at the top of the bunch and he's stayed there for the best part of three decades.   Beyond all the things that make him such a key historical figure in the scene - Strings of Life, Nude Photo, It Is What It Is, all that genre-defining business - he's still at the top of his game both behind the decks and in the studio. Earlier in the year he pulled together a stunning disc on 'We Love... Detroit' (the other being mixed by Jimmy Edgar) which came full circle, encapsulating the truly classic Detroit techno vibe through current tracks by dudes like Andres, KiNK and Carl Craig. We had the extreme pleasure of partying with him a couple of years ago, and now the legend is back for round two at Picnic!   Kali will be warming up the floor when we open at 11pm, then it's over to Derrick for as long as he's feeling it - an extended set of pure dance magic.
