    Detroit techno originator Kevin Saunderson live in the mix at Rocking The Daisies 2011 in South Africa.

    Easily the most dexterous in the stable of Detroit techno pioneers, _(artist-name)Kevin Saunderson_ recorded some of the hardest and most mechanistic techno to come out of the Motor City. He moved from Brooklyn to the D in his teens where he hooked up with two folks at highschool who are now considered to be the originators of the Detroit techno sound: _(artist-name)Derrick May_ and _(artist-name)Juan Atkins_. Initially bonding over sports, they later came back together in music and made no less than history as the _(artist-name)Belleville Three_. After scoring his first official release as part of _(artist-name)Kreem_ on Atkins’ label Metroplex, Saunderson later set up his own imprint KMS in order to get his music out there. In 1987, he went on to found the project _(artist-name)Inter City_ that would eventually become _(artist-name)Inner City_, and push over six million units of its first release _(song-title)Big Fun_, which was also featured on Virgin Records’ _(album-title)Techno! The New Dance Sound Of Detroit_. But Saunderson’s pop success did not dent his enthusiasm for underground, cutting-edge techno. He continued to release under a slew of pseudonyms such as _(artist-name)E-dancer_, _(artist-name)Reese_ and _(artist-name)Reese & Santonio_, and rock floors all across the globe, keeping him in demand as a DJ to this very day.
