Trevor May Newsbeat

MAJOR LEAGUE BASSBIN, OR THE UNLIKELY EDM CAREER OF TWINS RELIEVER TREVOR MAY

Its no Pavement.

And yet there’s a contemporary scene that makes all the sense in the world for the musically inclined sports figure. Say what you will about electronic dance music—and I say it’s generally more great than not from “Sharevari” onwards—but its longtime reliance on The Beat over a personality cult and preference for collective-driven anonymity over marquee stardom makes it one of music’s greatest places to escape. Detractors say it’s “faceless,” but when your face is on millions of Topps baseball cards, that probably sounds pretty ####### great.

This is why I was more heartened than shocked to learn that Twins pitcher Trevor May, sixth-starter hopeful and possible solution to the team’s generation-spanning middle-relief malaise, is still continuing an EDM career that was pointed out as a weird footnote when the then-Phillies prospect was dealt to the Twins in the 2012 Ben Revere trade.
