Derrick May Once More

Last Saturday BBC 6 digital radio broadcast a two hour Derrick May special. Here's a blurb from the BBC website.

Pioneering DJ Derrick May returns to 6 Mix with three brand new exclusive DJ sets, showcasing tunes from his musical past, present and future

Derrick - best known for his 1987 dance anthem Strings of Life under the name Rhythm Is Rhythm - has been an iconic name on the techno scene for over twenty years, DJing worldwide to a devoted fan base. Hailing from Detroit, Michigan, May's work - alongside fellow DJs Juan Atkins and Inner City's Kevin Saunderson - has provided the catalyst for a number of producers worldwide.

In his second 6 Mix of the year, Derrick plays classic house tunes which have inspired him from Fingers Inc and Lil Louis, plus jazz from Herbie Hancock and upfront music from John Tejada. He also talks about his work as a DJ and where's he's heading musically There's also a brand new hi tek soul mix and in the second hour of the show Derrick gets on the decks for an exclusive 'May Day' club mixes, featuring Liasons Dangereuses and Patrick Cowley and hot tunes from his own Transmat label.

I think you get the picture.
