Yeah, it’s about that time again; RINSED is back but with something truly once-in-a-lifetime within its upcoming endeavor. Detroit comes to NYC through the glow of golden-era rave thanks to a special live performance from the legendary Inner City. Considering the group’s live performances have been few and far between in the past decade-plus, this is not just a big get for the RINSED crew, but a big get for New York City in general, as this is a rare opportunity to see legends at work. And if that wasn’t enough, another legend joins the fold in the form of the beloved Justin Strauss, who has been satiating dancefloor addicts for decades with his penchant for amazing selections. Rounding out the lineup will be Detroit up-and-comer Danitez Saunderson and RINSED residents, Dan Wender and Blacky II. What are you waiting for? Don’t you want to have “Big Fun”? Or maybe you want a piece of the “Good Life”? Either way, get your ass to RINSED because this is going to be a memorable night out. Check out some Inner City vibes, flyer and ticket link post-jump.

Techno icon Kevin Saunderson created some of the most sampled sounds and recognizable songs around, but apparently upon hearing “Beat Me Back” by Supernova, he’d heard enough. Saunderson believes strongly that song is basically nothing more than a filtered loop of his 1987 classic “The Sound” and he’s putting both songs out there for everyone to hear and decide for themselves.
Visit his SoundCloud page to check the Supernova version and see what you think. The download link there is live so he’s basically giving away their track too. I guess that puts the ball in their court in terms of suing him for giving away what he considers to be his track in the first place.
Here’s the full text of his open letter on the subject:
‘Fastest email I’ve opened in a while. No reason for me to type — ‘usually the case — so you can just DL this mix. There’s also a link to the trailer for the upcoming four-deck worldwide DJ battle-slash-tour Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson will embark on in 2011…that is all. …MORE
