XM KICKOFF PARTY Pt. 2 (Kevin Suanderson w/Stacey Pullen & DJ Minx)
wsg Residents DJ’s Art Payne & Keith Martin

STACEY PULLEN

Many know Stacey Pullen as a Recording Artist from the Second Wave of Detroit Techno with his releases on Derrick May’s Fragile Records, KMS, and his own imprint Black Flag Records. Others know him from his multiple years spinning in Europe as a world renowned DJ or when he brings it home with his special Parties that happen here in Detroit every year.

Kevin Saunderson figures its only natural to have Stacey spin this weeks XM Party given Pullen’s creativity as a recording artist and his ability to rock a crowd as a DJ, a perfect fit for XM.

DJ MINX

DJ Minx remembers being a “club kid” at the world famous Music Institute. That experience made her aspire to spin music and “back in the day”, she went on to one of the few successful female DJ’s in Detroit and open doors and paved the way for others to follow. She runs a successful Record label (Women On Wax) and hangs with a hot collective of individuals under Gruv Detroit.

She was the voice of the Deep Space Radio show on WGPR years ago, and still gives up a weekly dose of Deep House on her Internet radio show on Handz On Radio every Tuesday with her “Queen Beats” show. Come check out DJ Minx along with Kevin Saunderson & Stacey Pullen for XM @ ReLiv – this Thursday….

Week 4 of Kevin Saunderson’s new Detroit Residency features one of the Originators of the SECOND WAVE of Detroit Techno – DJ Carl Craig.

Carl Craig represents the so called “Next Generation” of the Detroit Techno Scene. Unlike the Originators (Juan, Derrick, & Kevin) who were DJ’s who also made wonderful music, Carl Craig was first and foremost a Musician. A young protégé’ of Derrick May, Carl was initially recruited to make music for Derrick May’s Transmat Records but the Carl Craig sound didn’t quite fit the direction Transmat was taking so Derrick created a new label called Fragile Records to present Carl Craig to the world with a sound that many said was way ahead of its time.

Carl spent plenty of time in the studio on Techno Blvd, and ran across his High School friend Damon Booker who happened to work next door at Kevin’s label KMS Records. That chance meeting spawned a new Record Label called Retroactive Records as well as interest in Carl getting behind the decks and learning how to spin Records and become a DJ. Being a Musician and a DJ took Carl Craig’s talent to a whole new level and it showed when he went on to create groundbreaking Music for his own label. Planet E Records.

Being both a Musician and a DJ, Carl has a unique perspective on Music which sometimes expands outside of the Club Bangers covering many moods and feelings, almost like a soundtrack for Life. Kevin Saunderson invites you to come the artistry, influence, and musical diversity of DJ Carl Craig at XM Monday @ Oslo.

XM Mondays @ Oslo – Kevin Saunderson wsg DJ Reggie Hotmixx Harrell

Some DJ’s just LOVE music on all levels, then with other DJ’s – MUSIC is just in their Blood (or lack thereof)…..

Reggie Hotmix Harrell began spinning as a DJ in the early 80’s and like most DJ’s coming up in that era, he knew a DJ was only as good as the music he spun – YOU’VE GOT TO BRING THE HOTNESS.

Reggie, like many other DJ’s frequented a little Record Shop on 7 Mile Rd. called Professionals Records that sold some of the hottest music at that time. Young Reggie used to ride his bicycle up to the store and plunk down his cash to buy the hottest Import singles and 12” classics. Seems that one day, he was a little short on cash for that “just one more 12” single” that he just HAD to have and asked the store to hold it for him. Reg remembered passing a clinic on his bike that paid Cash for Blood Donors…. A little while later Reggie returns to Professionals (a pint or two low), plunks down the cash and leaves with his “MUST HAVE” Record but ends up PASSING OUT on his Bike during the ride home.

Reggie Hotmix Harrell survived the ordeal and went on to become one of Detroit’s Hottest DJ’s. In the mid 90’s he hosted and spun a Mix Show on the popular station WHYT 96.3 called the Hip Hop Explosion for many years and still brings the hotness today – HOUSE STYLE – as a resident mixer on Detroit’s ONLY House Music Mix Show – Club Insomnia on FM 98 WJLB – every Saturday night at 3am.

Join Reggie Hotmix Harrell, Kevin Saundersons featured Guest DJ this week at Xperimental Music Mondays at Oslo. Kevin has agreed to have Cookies and Orange Juice available just for Reggie – just in case he does some last minute Record shopping for the event.

XM @ Oslo 11/09 with DJ Mike Clark

DJ Mike Clark

DJ Mike Clark

Week 2 of Kevin Saunderson’s new Detroit Residency features DJ Mike Clark as the featured Guest DJ.

Ask ANY DJ in Detroit who has been spinning records for a minute, if they could inherit another DJ’s Record Collection, somewhere after Ken Collier or Duane “In The Mix” Bradley – the name Mike Clark is sure to pop up…..

Mike Clark has been spinning records for almost 3 decades and while many other DJ’s specialized in Chicago’s House or the emerging sound of Detroit Techno, Mike’s tastes also followed the New York Garage Scene. A member of the DJ Crew “Direct Drive” back in the day, Mike is now partnered with Delano Smith and Norm Talley under Beatdown Sounds, and also makes music as Detroit recording artist Agent X.

DJ Mike Clark is the first Featured Guest DJ for Kevin Saunderson’s new residency (XM) Xperimental Music @ Oslo.

X:M @ Oslo – Opening Night – Mon. Nov. 2 with Kevin Saunderson

One of the Originators of Detroit Techno, Kevin Saunderson invites you to his new residency in Detroit for a special opening night @ Oslo on Monday, November 2, 2009. The night is called “X:M” for Xperimental Music Mondays and ventures outside of the traditional style of this World Renowned DJ.

Kevin wanted to create a night where a DJ could play what he felt, anything from Disco to Abstract Grooves, anything goes – from songs that influenced them in the past or what they feel will be the next big thing.

He will set the tone of X:M Mondays with his Opening Night Set on November 2.

Register at his website for No Cover admission to the event: www.kevinsaunderson.com

Until the debut of X:M @ Oslo enjoy this classic Kevin Saunderson set from years ago….

“Oslo is a great intimate venue, perfect for what I had in mind. A regular monday night social for Detroit, were my guests and me can play across the board, a mixture of music that inspired us to start on our creative paths, and music which continues to inspire us today. I see it becoming a regular drop-in, for anyone who is looking for a space to meet like minded souls, listen to some inspirational music, and relax after a hectic weekend! I hope this will result in an exchange of ideas, young up and coming musicians can meet with established artists and everyone can support each other in moving forward” – Kevin Saunderson
