[GIG] Triptych: Derrick May + Octogen @ Snafu


Recommended Posts

Derrick May

Techno architect and house music patriarch Derrick May is the unrivalled mastermind behind such pioneering guises as Rhythim is Rhythim and Mayday.

Revered for creating and shaping Detroits legendary aural terrain alongside eminent contemporary Kevin Saunderson and fellow Triptych 08 contender Juan Atkins Mays bass-laden, synth-twisting, genre-defining genius surfaced in early techno masterworks, Nude Photo and The Dance.

But it was 1987s colossal Strings of Life (as Rhythim is Rhythim) that truly secured Mays prominence within the dance music realm.

Inspired by the likes of George Clinton, Giorgio Moroder and Kraftwerk and responsible for one of the greatest remixes of all-time (Sueno Latinos Sueno Latino) May continues to narrate, update and arouse the boundaries of electronic music.


Glasgow house doctor Octogen Marco Bernardi fuses ice-pick electronica and balmy soul to generate a melodic take on Detroit-inspired future funk. His debut album, 2fiveonine (Soma), is an excellent collection of alien techno and warm-bodied electro. His live sets, meanwhile, assure a dance-floor excursion from down-tempo melody to all-out assault.
