Derrick May “The Innovator”
Derrick May has been referred to as the “Miles Davis” of Techno. He is also credited as one of the innovators of the genre. Through his relationship with Juan Atkins, May produced one of the most influential records in electronic music history, “Strings of Life” in 1987. He soon gets a chance encounter with some enterprising Europeans, who took all of them and the music to places they never thought they would ever be.
Years later, he continues to work as a world class DJ. But his label is now struggling to stay afloat, and his past decisions as a businessman haunt him.
