Dantiez and Damarii Saunderson carry more techno in their blood than a week-long squat party, and it´s because of two reasons: they´re natives of Detroit, the city that gave birth to the style, and they´re both sons of Kevin Saunderson, a part of the "Holy Trinity" of Detroit and of techno history itself. Released by the legendary KMS, their track Under The Bridge continues on the great legacy of their predecessors, with booming kicks, stabbing synths and an irresistible groove.
