Kevin Saunderson – BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix

From era defining tracks with Inner City to the infamous Reese bassline that shaped the course of drum and bass, Kevin Saunderson’s contributions to electronic music and music culture around the world are matched by very few, if any. As we get set to welcome him to Tobacco Dock on Easter Friday for The Hacienda’s historical, one off rave extravaganza, ‘The Elevator’ recently unloaded a perfect taste of what’s to come with this flawless techno masterclass for BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix.

One of the most prolific producers of our generation, the Detroit queen of techno debuted on Nina Kraviz’s трип imprint in 2015 with this mind bending acid tearer.
