Kevin Saunderson
Kevin Saunderson
Kevin Saunderson is an American electronic music producer. At the age of nine he moved to Belleville, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit where he attended Belleville High School and befriended two students, Derrick May and Juan Atkins. Saunderson, with Atkins and May, (often called the "Belleville Three"), is considered to be one of the originators of techno, specifically Detroit techno. He is married to Sharmeela Lamarsha Saunderson.

Although frequently associated with Detroit, Kevin Saunderson spent the early years of his life in Brooklyn, New York, before moving to Belleville, Michigan, a rural town some 30 miles from Detroit. As teenagers attending Belleville High School, Atkins, May, and Saunderson were fans of DJ Charles "The Electrifying Mojo" Johnson and the pop, disco, and funk music he played. Atkins and May soon became serious about mixing others' music and creating their own, but Saunderson pursued other goals first, studying telecommunications and playing American football at Eastern Michigan University. Atkins had begun recording with Cybotron in 1981, but it was not until 1985 that May followed suit and made a record. Initially concentrating on becoming a DJ, Saunderson watched the six-month-long process as May completed "Let's Go;" he was inspired to create his own music.

Doc Martin's live sets truly bring people together and the variation in his style of music is virtually endless. What makes him so different from the rest? It's his unique ability to spin everything from deep house vocals that have so much depth and meaning to us all in some way and his funky tribal bass lines mixed with threads of acid; his passive collection of classics and rare records that are only to be heard at his gigs.

He has releases out on every major house music label such as; Sublevel Music, Nervous Records, Classic, Music For Freaks, NRK, Moonshine, Shaboom, Siesta, Greyhound, Imperial Dub, & Leaf, there is no doubt Doc Martin has developed the respect as a house DJ that so many of us admire.
