The club tip’s gone international this week, heading over to Detroit for a night that looks too good not to mention. This year marks 25 years since the launch of the legendary KMS Records, one of the very first techno labels, and on Sunday night founder Kevin Saunderson and some big names are getting together for a party in the city where it all started.

Providing the headline DJ sets will be Saunderson himself and his Belleville Three buddies Derrick May and Juan Atkins, plus Eddie Fowlkes, under the billing ‘The Creators Of Techno’. Plus there’ll also be a set from fellow pioneer Blake Baxter, and live sets from Carl Craig (in his early 90s 69 guise) and Inner City.

As well as that, there’ll be DJ sets from Kenny Larkin, Stacey Pullen, Buzz Goree, Kyle Hall, Terrence Parker, Marc MK Kinchen, Mike Clark, Mike Huckaby, Allan Ester, DJ Minx and D-Wynn.

It’s guaranteed to be an amazing night, but why not hear it from the horse’s mouth (as it were), in this promo video:

Sunday 27 May, Saint Andrews Hall, 431 East Congress Street, Detroit, Michigan 48226, 10pm – 4am, $40, more info here.
