Derrick May was born in Detroit in 1963, a single child raised largely by his mother.
May was fascinated by the warmth and community feeling engendered at spots like the Power Plant and the Music Box, where DJs Frankie Knuckles and Ron Hardy used elaborate turntable set-ups and reel-to-reel machines to create mastermixes which re-invoked the spirit of disco even while pushing music forward.
May continued to DJ around the world, and maintained his standing in the eyes of many top-flight producers.

 Derrick May (1963 - )
Derrick May was born in Detroit in 1963 and began early in his life to explore electronic music.
Derrick May is one of the founding fathers of Detroit techno, a precursor of its many variants and particularly of acid house.
Magic 'Juan' may be credited with 'inventing' techno through his early electro experiments, but May changed the way electronic music was interpreted, grasping hold of the rudiments and laying plans that bared it's possibilities, plans which will always remain as fundamental reference.

 RA: Resident Advisor - Derrick May - The Techno Artist - Feature / Interview   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
May is probably best known for his universally loved ‘Strings of Life’ but May doesn’t really like looking to the past too much, he much prefers to propel himself into the future.
Derrick May the DJ, is known for his melodic vibe and spiritual form of Djing, but Derrick the artist really just loves to be surrounded by “creative people, entertainers, and even people involved in live stage events” basically anything that involves creating something and seeing it grow and flourish.
When Derrick was a young boy, he would spend a generous amount of time with his grandfather who was a “methodical kind of man” whom Derrick would “listen to religiously as a kid”.

May went on to cut three tracks on System 7's debut album, before Network released Innovator: Soundtrack For The Tenth Planet in 1991, a six-track EP that comprised some of May's definitive moments to date.
May spends most of his time touring the world as a DJ, continuing in the tradition of the likes of Ken Collier and Larry Levan, a tradition he started with his Deep Space parties all those years ago.

 The Stranger | Seattle | Line Out: The Stranger's Music Blog | Derrick May Rocked Element
Derrick May rocked it and for all of the elitist crap I spew about the Element demographic, they know how to party, making the night far exceed expectations.
I was worried that that would indicate a big cheese-fest, but May was throwing down great record after great record, slowing things a bit later in the night, but playing quality tracks all the way through.
It was a bit different than other techno nights in that the room wasn’t filled with just DJs, producers, and obsessive fans, but had people there to just have a good time, regardless of the DJ and where he’s from.

 Slant Magazine - Music Review: Derrick May: Innovator
chooled by Techno pioneer Juan Atkins in the early '80s, Derrick May became one of the most influential of Detroit's wiz kids (the "inventors" of Techno as it were).
Though he was not as prolific as Atkins or fellow-DJ Kevin Saunderson, May's label, Transmat (inspired by the Atkins track "Time, Space, Transmat"), continued on through the '90s, releasing singles by Carl Craig and Stacy Pullen.
May's creations paved the way for later Detroit artists like Plastikman as well as rave culture as we know it.

This is what you can read inside of the Derrick May "Innovator" collection.
And indeed, one could draw comparisons between the techno of Derrick May and the music of Mozart, mainly because of the omnipresent supply of strings tied together by cyborganic machines.
Everyone knows that Derrick May is not 4-on-the-floor bangin' techno, so I won't be sending this one off to my friends as an introduction to pumping mindless mechanics, instead I will hide it from others and listen to it in the solitude of headphones, forever analyzing the synthetically constructed rhythms.

 Amazon.com: Innovator: Music: Derrick May   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Thanks to legendary singles like "Strings of Life" and "Nude Photo," Derrick May is universally regarded as the definitive techno producer; by hijacking the rhythmic sensibilities of house and adding the intelligence of European electronica and the spirit of Motown, he single-handedly defined and articulated the sound of Detroit.
May delivers a powerful dark sound with all of detroit's signiture noise.
Acid House, Hardcore and Techno (and thus DrumandBass, Trance and Big Beat offshoots) for example got a lot of early influences from May, who is regarded as one of the original pioneers of 'Techno' as it is known today.

Along with Juan Atkins and Kevin Saunderson, Derrick May is one of the so-called Belleville Three, Detroit-area electronic musicians/DJs who defined modern techno for the masses in the mid- to late-'80s.
The production, composition and sheer groove prowess that May exhibits under his most famed monikers Rythim Is Rythim and Mayday, haven't dated; time has only added to their resonance.
It's just one of many moments that truly make May the INNOVATOR he claims to be, and give this collection essential techno status.
