Dats Whats Up! Derrick May and Shawn Rudiman@ 10 Critics, Detroit

After a hiatus of event reviews, I made it down to the D this past weekend with some friends to check out all the hotness that was going down at 10 Critics. I’m glad this place finally got licenced, no “membership fee”! When we got there Shawn Rudiman was blowing it up on a veritable arsenal of live gear. Watching this guy live is madness! Absolutely amazing control over all his machines, and just straight sinister sounds, especially from the 909 and the Virus.(see video below). Derrick May took the reigns next, and threw down a bangin’ set of old tracks and new from all over the techno spectrum. I haven’t seen him play in a couple years, and I though he really killed it that night! Although, my hat is off to Shawn Rudiman for probably one of the best live sets I’ve seen in awhile. Convextion was billed on the flyer, and I think he played like 3 tracks before Derrick May went on; I wonder what was up with that? Lots of video this week. Peace.
