Derrick May

Do the Belleville Three need to recruit a new member to keep up the myth? The question as a Detroit source witheringly compares Derrick May to South Park character Kenny McCormick…

For the first few years of its run, the South Park character Kenny McCormick would die in every episode - yet he would return in the next episode alive and well. No explanation was ever provided, and characters on the show would rarely acknowledge the phenomenon - although McCormick’s weekly…

He’s still backing the loser! As Defected let Carl Craig loose on their weekly radio show, he plays not one, but TWO records from Derrick May in a petulant show of defiance…

You might have noticed this blog hasn't published anything on Derrick May for the past few weeks. That's mostly because there's been nothing new to report. Sources on Detroit have been sending me rumours that the man himself contracted Covid-19 over Christmas, but I'm unable to confirm if this is…

“It’s about the work, it’s about the new tracks, it’s about the new stuff” says Alan Oldham in a podcast for Finish More Music – so could he have a word with fellow Detroit DJs such as Derrick May who continue to trade on decade old glories?

Back we go on what is a Bank Holiday Monday here in the UK - and also my birthday, to top it off - to the subject of Alan Oldham. Now, regular readers might have already worked out he’s a touchy little fellow - and he certainly doesn’t like being…
