Who is Jerry May ?
Jerry May plays a typical style that is liked by a big crowd. His style tends towards Tech House, Funky Tech house mangled in with some techno that makes people recognise him instantly. It seems like May was destined to love any kind of electronic music. His first experience was in 1989 which involved listening to Acid, New Beat, House, Techno, Rave and visiting clubs all over Belgium and Holland. No wonder so many electronic noises worked their way up into his sub consciousness.
Beside his DJ career, Jerry May is also a promising producer. Started with producing in 2010 he immediately caught the attention of many big producers who supported his releases, star producers like Len Faki, D-Formation, Paco Osuna, Reset Robot and Nick Chatelain to just name a few from a long list. With his releases on labels like Push It Records and Code2 Records he got pretty fast into airtime on the famous radioshow Toolroom Knights, selected by Mark Knight. His entourage comments “He’s definitly an upcoming dj/producer to look out for”. Even today he is caught in the music, since he lays his soul into the A&R of Push It Records, one of the labels he’s signed on. Together with the crew at Push It he seeks the right vibes and sounds for the label.
Over the past two years Jerry May exploded over the club, festival and party scene. Noticed and pushed by DJ Prinz, Jerry had the chance to exploit his unique style & sets to the people, and oh boy, he exploited himself like a real party killer. Heads and hands go up, yelling, whooping and bouncing is not unusual while Jerry is on the decks, which he shared with the cream of the earth: Carlo Lio, Reset Robot, Ellen Allien, Technasia, Butch, Kaiserdisco, Dyed Soundorom, Marco Carola and many more.
May’s biggest gigs include Tomorrowland, Laundry Day, Ostend Beach, Neverland and he’s a more then frequent dj at the Push it party’s who held there party residence in the famous club Cafe d’Anvers. Beside that he also got invited to clubs like H20, Studio 80, ADE, Cherry Moon, La Rocca and Wood. Recently Jerry May started to try it abroad and got a few gigs in Club Cafe 1001 (London), Studio 80 (Amsterdam), ADE 2011 and has been invited to play at IMS Ibiza for his label. We think that the international gate for Jerry is opened and from here on, it can only go up!
