Kevin Saunderson Live from 909 Festival in Amsterdam 2023

This was techno pioneer Kevin Saunderson live at 909 Festival in Amsterdam last month. The 2023 edition took place on 3 + 4 June, also hosting the likes of Carl Craig, Secret Cinema, and Sandrien among others.

909 Festival pays homage to the iconic Roland TR-909 – the drum machine that came to define house and techno music as we know it today.

I hope you enjoy the set.

Kevin Saunderson Bio

Platinum-selling recording artist, label boss, festival promoter, true innovator in the pantheon of popular music, cultural champion, cracking DJ: there’s 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 today’s 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.
