*About Kevin Saunderson*
There’s a lot to be said about Kevin Saunderson: platinum-selling recording artist, label boss, festival promoter, true innovator in the pantheon of popular music, cultural champion, cracking DJ. 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 irrevocably changed the face of electronic music; with Inner City, he gave it some of its most memorable tunes.
The genesis of today’s 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. By absorbing Kraftwerk, cutting-edge funk, local radio stalwart The Electrifying Mojo’s eclecticism, and all manner of new synthesiser and drum machine-led pop music, the Belleville Three broke new ground as musicians and DJs in the 80s.
In the intervening years Kevin has been the prime mover in some of the most ambitious and remarkable dance music projects of the last few decades: chronicling the early footsteps of artists like R-Tyme, Blake Baxter, MK, Chez Damier, Derrick Carter and Bicep on his own KMS imprint. A special 12” series in 2008 called History Elevate, released in tandem with fellow polymath Carl Craig’s Planet E label, brought contemporary names like Mathew Jonson, Simian Mobile Disco and Loco Dice into the fold, proving his nous for fostering relationships with each new wave to come through techno’s gates.
*About Adam Rahman*

Groove On The Grass (Dubai), Go Madras (India), the Beirut Music Conference, Griessmuelhe Club (Berlin), Sage Club (Berlin) , Dada Bar (Shanghai), The Shelter (Shanghai) and many other venues in Middle East and India.

Having performed alongside Techno heavyweights Sven Vath, Chris Liebing, Adam Beyer, Zenker Brothers, DVS1, DJ Q, Felix Krocher, Kevin Saunderson, Derrick May, Carl Craig, Anja Schneider, Marco Carola... to name a few, there is no doubt that Adam has made his mark on the Techno scene.
