Kevin Saunderson’s influence runs deep, through both his adopted hometown of Detroit and music culture as a whole. This set for 909 Festival 2019 is iconic. His high-energy, high-spirit, and high-impact Detroit driven grooves will make you easily understand why he earned his nickname “The Elevator”. See you at: Loveland ADE: loveland.nl/ade
While Juan Atkins and Derrick May are known as the originator and innovator of Detroit techno, respectively, Kevin Saunderson is known as the elevator for bringing it to the mainstream. In the late ’80s, his group Inner City topped UK charts with singles like “Big Fun” and “Good Life.” In addition to his 30+ years as a solo artist, he also runs the venerable KMS label. Here, Saunderson explores the history of techno, his mainstream success and creating the first ever dance remix.
Kevin Saunderson goes back to back with Willy! They talk his legacy as one of the originators of techno music, Detroit & NYC in the 80s, working with Juan Atkins & Derrick May, conceptualizing & helping to run Movement Festival, inventing the Reese bass, pioneering the concept of a remix & much more!
