Kevin Saunderson Revives E-Dancer Alias

Kevin Saunderson

It’s been years since Kevin Saunderson, the techno titan of many faces (Reese Project, Kreem, Tronik House, et al), took on his E-Dancer alias — in fact, it was 1998 when he released Heavenly album under that name. But now the Detroit dynamo is reviving it in the service of his new single, “Foundation.” Set for a July 6 release on his KMS label, the record brings together some of the best loved items in The Elevator’s arsenal — big, bold beats and electro-inspired synth lines that achieve an insistent but almost otherworldly kind of propulsion.

Those who have been keeping a close eye on Saunderson’s work lately know that he recently brought his Origins stage back to Detroit’s Movement Electronic Music Festival, letting the spirit of classic Motor City techno speak to an ever-increasing audience through a broad array of artists.

Saunderson will be bringing his own brand of Detroit sounds around the globe this summer too, stopping everywhere from Ibiza to Paris along the way. But whether you’re able to catch him in action or not, the tracks Saunderson serves up on “Foundation” should still give you plenty to chew on.

Movement Detroit Draws Record Attendance

Movement took over Detroit over during the three-day Memorial Day weekend and registered its highest attendance since becoming a ticketed event in 2005. A total of 107,343 electronic music fans attended the annual festival produced by Paxahau. A who’s who of techno and house performed, including a co-headlining set from Public Enemy.
