Kevin Saunderson was there in Detroit right at the birth of techno, as part of the Belleville Three with schoolmates Juan Atkins and Derrick May he’s credited with helping to create the genre. Going on to form Inner City, who had huge commercial success with the timeless tracks Good Life and Big Fun, Kevin has worked consistently in the years since techno was born – making electronic music and DJing/touring around the globe. Still one of the scene’s most revered and respected proponents, Kevin has reunited with the crew from Inner City to release some new material – several years after their last outing.
