The secret is officially out. During an electronical clubbing night magic happened, two artist met for the first time – and love began to spread. Their genre-defying mix of live percussion mixed with house beats should MAY&SEAGULL make from one of Dance Music’s best kept secret to an act tipped by the club tastemakers as the duo to watch this year. Steffen May’s, also known as STEVE LE MAY, career began at age 17, pressing the pause, play and repeat button at some house parties. He discovered his passion for music, which invites people to dance. Since ten years Steve Le May is the dance in- spiration at the finest clubs in northern Germany. Club names as none other than Elephant Club (Bielefeld), Kupé (Arhus), Noho (HH), Uppereast (HH), Moondoo (HH), Halo (HH), TheRoom (HH), Docks (HH), Golden Cut (HH), Club Rotes Kliff (Kampen) and Pony (Kampen) are on his lists as well as special events as Belle Etage, Flying Fantasy, Snowbeat Festival Wittenburg, Maed- chendiskothek and Crystal Overnight. He developed his sound further by sharing stage and being support DJ for Richard Judge, Qulinez, Alexander Brown, TooManyLeftHands, Faustix, Phil Fuldner, Oliver Ingrosso, Mike Hawkins, JEROME and MARV, but it was time for something new: The beginning of his own electronical show “It’s MAY pleasure”. The event shows his passion to enjoy the sound of music. He always knew music was a massive part of him and ever since then he has always felt it deep within his soul. His deepest love is and will always be for music. And this is what “It’s MAY pleasure” stands for – the indescribable love for electronical music. Max Grösswang, also known as Mark Seagull, musical journey began in his childhood, where he decided to become a musician.
A bit later he fulfilled his dream and found himself in the musical “König der Löwen” as a percussionist. He also worked as a mu-sician freelancer for several artist on stage and in the studio. To name a few Reel People, Simon Grey, Tony Momrelle, Bilder-buch, Konshens and Cosmo Klein. This is where he met his studio partner and mentor David Paulike, known as MONTE. In the studio with MONTE he learnt to produce electronical music more behind the desk than in front of it. During this time he realized his passion for production. He was able to verbalise what he was hearing inside of his head. SEAGULL stands for an experience with music, which not only people never heard before, but also resulting in literally feel it and awaking the inner dancing moves. With May&Seagull Steffen and Max get to explore the rhythms of electronic music production more extensively to create their own style. And thus began a match made in heaven.
