It's a serious techno double bill at this month's Jackhammer. Gracing the decks will be none other than Kevin Saunderson (pictured) with back up from Ben Sims. Saunderson is one of the three originators of techno – alongside Juan Atkins and Derrick May – back in his native Detroit, and also scored considerable chart success with tracks like 'Big Fun' in his Inner City guise. Ben Sims is no slouch either getting his first set of decks at the age of ten, now dishing out seamlessly mixed hard funky techno on three decks (or more).
