Deep Blue and Monarch are teaming up to bring you an intimate evenieng with the Godfather of techno, Derrick May. Derrick is one of our favorite DJs of all time. We brought him back to SF after many years of absence in 2007. The man is a legend for being one of the Detroit 3 with Juan Atkins and Kevin Saunderson who started the Detroit techno movement in 1986. The man created "Strings of Life" one of the all time most influential house/techno tracks. But the reason to why we love him is his aggressive style of mixing and his energy behind the decks. The man has full control over the dance floor and pushes the boundaries. HIs nixing style is anything but safe; coming in and out of tracks, mixing without headphones, old school DJ tricks. When we see him DJ it reminds me of why I wanted to be a DJ in the first place. All new school DJ kids should come, watch, and learn. He was a major influence in my career and he can be in yours too. Due to the limited capacity at Monarch, early arrival is suggested. Want to see who's going? Check out the Facebook event page here.
