No (re)entry after 2:30a Please respect your fellow patrons, the venue, staff, neighborhood and yourself! ********** ********** Platinum-selling recording artist, label boss, festival promoter, true innovator in the pantheon of popular music, cultural champion, cracking DJ: there۪s a lot to be said about Kevin Saunderson. His influence runs deep, through both adopted hometown of Detroit, and music culture as a whole: as one of the Belleville Three, the high school trio which also includes Juan Atkins and Derrick May, he irreparably changed the face of electronic music; with Inner City, he gave it some of its most memorable tunes. The genesis of today۪s enormous techno scene can be retraced straight to Kevin, Derrick and Juan, as their formative experiments on rudimentary hardware sketched a blueprint for a genre that was yet to exist. Behind-the-scenes, Saunderson is intertwined with the history of Detroit۪s flagship Movement (formerly Detroit Electronic Music Festival / Fuse-In). Having produced the event in the mid-2000s, the last handful of years have seen repeated invites from Movement to display his ORIGINS showcase at the festival. With a stacked international touring schedule over the decades, playing in nearly every country and at nearly every festival or club worth mention, he has not stopped pushing the feeling of techno on and on. The Groove That Won۪t Stop, indeed.

Detroit Legends no2 : Derrick May
Friday June 21st goodie & Its The Vza pres... Detroit Champions, a 3-part series showcasing the artists who gave us techno. Part 2 ft. Derrick May - deep electronic sounds by - Derrick May <Transmat Records> Rob Paine & Francisco Collazo 21+ Event All Sales Final Bar sales end at 2a. No (re)entry after 2:30a Please respect your fellow patrons, the venue, staff, neighborhood and yourself! ********** ********** One of the greatest living figures in electronic music, Derrick May originated a style that changed the sound and form of popular music across the world: techno. Born in Detroit on April 6, 1963, May met the other founding fathers of techno, Juan Atkins and Kevin Saunderson while he was a teenager studying at Belleville High School. Inspired by European electronic sounds and black American dance music, May, Atkins and Saunderson - who would become known as the Belleville Three۪ - began to DJ together at parties and clubs under the name Deep Space Soundworks in the early eighties. May's 1987 release Strings of Life' is without question one of the greatest dance floor anthems that will ever exist. In 2016 he returned to the studio for the first time in decades to record with Luxembourg-born classical pianist Francesco Tristano. The resulting album, Surface Tension۪ was released on his legendary Transmat label. Today Derrick continues to tour the world, from is hometown to Europe and beyond, spreading the language and love he created over 30 years ago.
