Detroit’s Inner City head on a celebratory tour which sees their first live performances outside of America in 20 years. With new music also on the horizon this marks a new era for the group. The next phase sees Kevin Saunderson now joined by his son and creative protégé Dantiez as a full-time member, plus guests such as vocalist Steffanie Christi’an. Last year, the new set up was premiered at the 2018 Movement Festival setting the stage for the group’s new era which continues this year.
The celebration of 30 years of Inner City starts with a spring/summer tour that sees them hitting festivals and clubs across the globe. The first set of dates were recently revealed starting strong across Europe.
The group are also in the studio creating new material to release across the year.
Kevin Saunderson: “My vision for Inner City is not just to be an influential group of the past, but to become a group of today and look to the future. We have an enormous catalogue of classics from our previous years and now we are moving and shaping a new sound for a new generation. There will always be a place for our music, people will always want to feel uplifted and it does just that. I believe our music has filled this void for 30 years and kept us in tune with the future generations. Now with my son Dantiez by my side we head into the future with great music for years to come.”
Formed by record producer, composer and international DJ Kevin Saunderson, and vocalist Paris Grey, Inner City are best known for their early crossover tracks ‘Big Fun’ and ‘Good Life’. Further success saw the group topping the US Billboard dance chart five times and securing nine Top 40 hits on the UK singles chart.
