Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May may head out on the road next year.
Now that’s a great headline to wake up to. Resident Advisor mentions that “Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May may head out on the road next year.”
I have seen them all in separately in different settings and occasions, but the idea of seeing them perform together sounds like the ultimate for a techno nostalgist like myself.
According to the post on Resident Advisor Saunderson said in an exclusive interview with We Got This Covered:
What I can say for the future is that we’re working on a tour now, for all three of us as the Belleville Three. We’re gonna try to kick it off next year, and it’s gonna start out with DJing and evolve into a much bigger thing, too.
I could only found the following in the post on We Got This Covered related to the subject:
You know, I think Derrick and me, we’ve done back-to-backs over the years, so we just kind of click like that. People seem to like it like that. We all have different management and agents, so there’s been a few times that we’ve all three played together, but not many.
…so I almost thought there was some wishful thinking involved from the side of Resident Advisor, But then I spotted this editors note:
In a previous version of this article, Kevin Saunderson briefly mentioned an upcoming endeavor between the three artists that was not supposed to be shared with the public until a later date. At the request of his publicist, we have removed that passage.
I guess they spilled the beans on that one…
