Kevin Saunderson “The Elevator”

Widely known as the “Elevator of Techno”, Saunderson, too was an up and coming DJ/Producer in the early 80’s.  By 1987 he started his own record label and began releasing his own style of Detroit Techno music.  After meeting with record label owner Neil Rushton, Kevin was on his way to having his first mainstream crossover hit with “Big Fun” and took Detroit Techno “above ground”, landing on MTV in 1988.
