Kevin Saunderson

If it hadn’t been for Saunderson meeting two other young individuals – Derrick May and Juan Atkins – in a Detroit suburb, the face of electronic music today would no doubt look very different. The ‘Belleville Three’ as they are often referred to (named after the school they attended) are deservedly regarded as the originators of Techno.

Saunderson achieved mainstream acceptance with his group Inner City and their international House music mega hits ‘Good Life’ and ‘Big Fun’, whilst he also invented The Reese Bassline with his track ‘Just Another Chance’ in 1988 – something that went on to become a fixture of nearly all the best Jungle tunes. Not one to rest on his laurels, Kevin continues to juggle family life, running his label KMS and touring around the world to this day.
