Joe Brunning – Soul Matters (Kevin & Dantiez Saunderson Remix)
Kevin Saunderson’s middle-son Dantiez has made a notably high-calibre launch into the world of underground house music. With his debut EP for Defected Records hitting some high notes for the offspring of genuine Detroit techno royalty, a brand new father-son collaboration pairs the duo with Carl Cox’s INTEC imprint and the recent handiwork of Australian talent Joe Brunning.
Though a relatively stripped back rendition of “Soul Matters,” the father-son duo gives the INTEC single a luscious tribal flare, building on percussive layers and dialled back vocal samples to show where less is more can still deliver on the modern dance palette. This isn’t the fierce and raw techno Saunderson senior stapled his career with, but a hybrid for where modern tech house can flex its instrumental stamina. Fear not the Osmond-esque cheese often established with shared familial production credits – the Saundersons are uniting two generations of house music in the best possible way.
