After a 17-year hiatus, Kevin Saunderson has returned to his beloved E-Dancer moniker with a new release next month on his label KMS. 'Foundation' finds the Detroit pioneer in fine form, delivering the kind of intricate melodic techno he's renowned for, exemplified previously on his 1998 E-Dancer LP 'Heavenly'.
"Out of all my other aliases - Inner City, Tronik House, Reese & Santonio, Reese Project - E-Dancer remains the one that's closest to my heart, as it represents my favorite style of music," Saunderson recently told The FADER. "For me, there's nothing better than music that sounds dark, deep, soulful and groovy - that still has that bass that bites but stays true to that underground vibe."
"When I create and go to that zone in my head that inspires me, I can still envision being at the Paradise Garage listening to those insane speakers, and imagine the track I'm writing is blasting on those speakers. For me, this feeling is the foundation of everything, and it it still strong enough to build on and move forward."
Following his crowd-pleasing performance alongside Derrick May at Movement 2015, you can catch Saunderson in Europe at Showcase Paris on June 19 and the Detroit Love stage at Bloc Barcelona on June 21, among other select dates throughout the summer. Right now, he’s in the midst of remixing Disclosure's 'Bang That' alongside his son Dantiez Saunderson.
