After two great Bank Holiday Sundays at The Basement with Greg Dowling & Nic Fanciulli, RePublik return on June Bank Holiday Sunday with another debut for an international DJ, the legenadry KEVIN SAUNDERSON of Inner City fame plus another All Day Summer Session hosted by POSH:Funk on the Terrace. Kevin, along with Derrick May and Juan Atkins (often called the "Belleville Three"), are considered to be one of the originators of techno, specifically Detroit techno. Saunderson also had international chart success with Inner City's club anthems "Big Fun" which became a worldwide smash, only to be outsold by his follow-up single, "Good Life." A debut album, Paradise, soon followed. Over the years, and after three albums, Inner City had about 12 Top 40 hits in the UK and two Top 20 albums, with combined sales of more than 6 million. These tracks are classics in mainstream dance music & not only the underground scene. Saunderson continues to develop his record label KMS. "The aim is to help and develop new talent and more importantly to continue to create and release great music." In 2007, Kevin Saunderson made his Second Life debut performing live at a mixed reality event celebrating the Grand Opening of Detroit Life - The Motor City inside The Metaverse. Still touring the world as one of the most well respected DJs of this generation, expect a mixture of house & Detroit techno when he flies in to Ireland for his debut Waterford gig on Sunday June 5th. Support comes from RePublik's Paul Mac plus Re:Techs Joe Gould & Alan Harris. More news to follow on upcoming gigs at The Basement for RePublik.
