Maria May’s roots in dance and electronic music run deep, with over 20 years under her belt representing DJs and producers including Frankie Knuckles, Paul Oakenfold, David Morales, Xpress 2, Soulwax/ 2manydjs and David Guetta. May joined CAA in 2012 to lead the high-powered Hollywood talent titan’s expansion into dance music. The veteran agent currently sits on the board of advisors of the Association For Electronic Music (AFEM), a trade body created in 2013 that reads like a roll call of the industry’s behind the-scenes heavyweights. She is also on the Advisory Committee for the Frankie Knuckles Foundation and the EMA’s (Electronic Music Awards).
May and her expanding global team have developed her division into a crucial player, with their current roster including Roisin Murphy, Black Eyed Peas, David Guetta, The Chainsmokers, Nicky Romero, Robin Schulz, Oliver Heldens, Jonas Blue, Lee Burridge and emerging artists like Hugel, Mashrou’Leila, Alle Farben, Monolink and Purple Disco Machine.
