"Cosmic Twins" Derrick May & François K Play Nocturnal's Eden Terrace Garden on June 20
For those of you born yesterday, Derrick May is one of Detroit's legendary Belleville Three, the trio that includes high school buddies Juan Atkins and Kevin Saunderson and is credited with originating the futuristic sound dubbed "techno" back in the mid-1980s. With a name inseparable from the ongoing history and development of the techno genre, May continues to produce and tour internationally, performing his signature brand of "hi-tek soul" which blends Parliament-style funk with robotic synth stylings inspired by Kraftwerk.
François Kevorkian is an NYC-based French transplant who played a pivotal early role as DJ/producer at the Paradise Garage and Studio 54 in the late 1970s. His sound in the 2000s has evolved from its early U.S. garage and deep house roots to an edgier take on techno, electro, and dub. It rightfully complements Derrick May's style while the twocontinue to tour together as Cosmic Twins. Any true techno and house fan will recognize the significance of this show, which pays homage to three decades of EDM. Get yourr ass down to the Terrace that night, no excuses! Stay tuned for ticket info coming up closer to the date.
Cosmic Twins at Eden Terrace Garden. Saturday, June 20, 10 p.m.- 6 a.m. Nocturnal, 50 NE 11 St., Miami.
