The best chillout record?

Massive Attack – ‘Unfinished Sympathy’ from the album Blue Lines. This is the sort of record that changes the world. It starts with your mind, goes to your gut and right through to your heart. It’s still on my list of favourites.

The best record for a family party?

‘Big Fun’ by Inner City, because the family loves it, and Kool And The Gang– ‘Celebration’.

The soundtrack to a lazy Sunday afternoon?

Lamb – Fear Of Fours. This record melded soul, techno, drum and bass and trip hop and delivered it with luscious vocals and deep bass.

The worst record you’ve ever heard?

Too many to name, and I am not that kind of guy. Live and let live is my motto.

The record you’re proudest of?

‘Good Life’, ‘Big Fun’, ‘Hallelujah’ and the Reese Project direct me. They’re like babies – it’s hard to pick a favourite!

The future classic?

Hopefully me and Inner City! We’re writing the new record now, and the new version and mixes of ‘Big Fun’.

 

The new Inner City single and ‘Big Fun’ remixes will be released later this year. Kevin will be playing at London Electronic Arts Festival (LEAF) on the 9th November with his son Dantiez Saunderson at a Detroit special at Circus Space, London. Find Kevin on Facebook, Twitter and SoundCloud.

  • Amazing guy, a serious pioneer. If it wasn’t for people like Kevin Saunderson credible dance music would not be where it is today. Managed to see Inner City live this year in Birmingham. From the first time of hearing it on vinyl to watching them all play live their music forever changed my perspective of what can be done with house music and techno. Know who you are dealing with, Big luv for these folk, always.

  • FYI the Cybotron and Inner City videos are not available in the U.S. (not that you have to change it, but I just figured I’d let you know).

  • (sorry, just the first Inner City video)

  • Thanks for letting us know, Ben. Unfortunately it’s not always possible to find embeddable videos which are available in all countries.

    If anyone can find alternatives please share them in the comments. That particular video for ‘Alleys Of Your Mind’ is just a shot of the label, but the ‘Good Life’ video is a late 80s classic.
