Kevin Saunderson and Adam Beyer have collaborated to release 17-track ‘E-Dancer Re:Generate’, marking Drumcode’s 250th release. It contains remixes from Saunderson’s E-Dancer project, from a variety of artists.
The compilation features artists spanning generations, scenes and continents, all tied together through techno.
On the release, Saunderson says: “This is a really special project to me because it connects artists of all generations of which E-Dancer has inspired, while giving a new generation some history. Unifying people through music and reminding people where it all started are two missions always at the forefront of my projects. I’m happy that all these years later E-Dancer is respected by the producers to come after me, and a fresh take on the music I made at the start of my journey is there to carry the next wave of kids on the dancefloor. I’m honoured to be doing this with Adam, uniting Drumcode and Detroit.”
“Kevin Saunderson’s E-Dancer material released during the ‘90s had a substantial impact on me. The 1998 ‘Heavenly’ album was an incredibly important moment in the history of techno. At the time I was a couple of years into launching Drumcode and was drawing substantial influence from many of Kevin’s records for my own productions at the time. Celebrating 250 releases on Drumcode is a moment in the label’s story that I wanted to recognise with something special and this opportunity to breathe new life into this iconic collection of E-Dancer material seemed a perfect fit in many ways”, Beyer adds.
