Derrick May performs with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra

Derrick May DSOWith a mix of one part techno and one part symphony, Derrick May performed with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra to make “symphonic fusion” on Friday night at the Chene Park Amphitheater in Detroit. May, one of The Belleville Three and godfathers of Detroit Techno had some of his productions put to life by conductor Dzijan Emin and the DSO. Six of Derrick May’s original classic productions were performed including “Icon”, “Kaotic Harmony”, “Hand Over Hand” and “Strings of Life”. Adding to the incredible ambiance, the event was set to a breathtaking thunderstorm over the Detroit River. (source:

Recently, Pete Tong performed with the Heritage Orchestra across the pond in London with a similar spectacular result. We hope this trend of blending electronic music and orchestrated arrangements continues and we can all sit back and enjoy the show.
