Detroit Soul. with Kevin Saunderson (E-Dancer, KMS, Inner City) | Xe54 | Friday, 06. September 2019

Stable Music presentsDetroit Soul featuring the Saunderson (E-Dancer, Origins, Innercity, KMS)If Detroit techno had a Mount Rushmore, Kevin Saunderson’s **** would be carved in granite alongside the other members of the “Belleville Three,” Juan Atkins and Derrick May. While Atkins and May are known as the originator and innovator of Detroit techno, respectively, Saunderson is often called the elevator for his role in bringing it to the mainstream. In the late ’80s, his group Inner City, which he formed with vocalist Paris Grey, topped UK charts with singles like “Big Fun” and “Good Life.” A stark departure from the more industrial work of Atkins and May, the pop-minded songs from Inner City’s platinum-selling Paradise (titled Big Fun in the US) and subsequent albums soundtracked clubs and raves around the world, and inspired countless imitations. In his 30-plus years as a solo artist, Saunderson has recorded hard-hitting techno under several aliases, including Reese, Tronik House and E-Dancer, releasing many on his record label KMS, which has also released work from artists like R-Tyme, Blake Baxter and Chez Damier. Of late, Saunderson has passed on his love of electronic music to his children Dantiez and DaMarii, both of whom have become producers and DJs.“The soul of the music beats the heart of the city” - Kevin Saundersonhttps:// 6th September 2019Matt Radovich, Eddie Hale, C:1, Kazuma Onishi , Matt Kovic, Liam Waller, Miss Farina & BexXe54334 City Road, South Bank, VIC 3006Photography by Marie StaggatDesign by Studio-ioSupported by AIAIAI AustraliaStay connected to the source: ❤️
