Inner City (live)

Inner City was formed in 1987 by Detroit ‘techno’ godfather Kevin Saunderson. At the time, Kevin - who was still in college, but recording out of his home studio - produced a track. Kevin filed away the tape until months later, when UK dance entrepreneur Neil Rushton came to Detroit in search of music for a compilation album, titled “Techno - The New Dance Sound Of Detroit”, for Virgin Records. Neil enthusiastically included "Big Fun" on the album. 

Kevin later felt that the track needed lyrics. Enter… Chicago chanteuse, Paris Grey, who was recommended by Chicago producer Terry Baldwin. "Paris agreed, flew into Detroit, came up with lyrics and ‘Big Fun’ was truly born. Inner City signed to Virgin Records and the single was released, in 1988. “Big Fun” hit the British charts with surprising, crossover, success (charting at Number 8). It was quickly followed up with the Top 10 single "Good Life" which surpassed the success of “Big Fun”, entering the UK Chart at Number 4. Their debut album “Paradise” entered the UK Chart at Number 3 and included a further two hit singles being; “Ain’t Nobody Better” and “Do You Love What You Feel”.

“Paradise Remixed” was also released in 1989 and later singles "Whatcha Gonna Do with My Lovin" and "That Man (He's Mine)" lit up dancefloors around the world, spreading the word about techno to thousands of mainstream clubbers familiar only with house music. 

Inner City's second album, “Fire”, didn’t reach the same level of success as “Paradise”, but still spawned two hit singles; namely “Hallelujah” and “Till We Meet Again”. The third album “Praise” featured the hits “Pennies from Heaven” (which entered the UK Chart at Number 24) and "Hallelujah 92" which quickly followed (entering the Chart at Number 22). "Testament 93" (a collection of some of the best remixes commissioned) followed in early 1993. It was also the bands last release with Virgin Records.

In the spring of 1993 the band signed to a new label, Six6 Records. Their first single was the popular track "Back Together Again" followed up by singles "Do Ya", "Share My Life" and "Ahnonghay". The group then went on a brief break as Kevin returned to his more experimental roots with work as The Reese Project (with his then wife Ann, who co-wrote and did all the vocal arrangements on the album "Faith, Hope & Clarity"). In 1995, Inner City returned from their brief hiatus, with their aptly titled single "Hiatus", swiftly followed by "Your Love" which entered the UK Charts at Number 27. "Do Me Right" was released in 1996.

In 1999 the band signed to PIAS and scored a Top 10 single, in the UK, with their Spanish version of "Good Life”, re-titled "Good Life (Buena Vida)". The single went on to sell over 100,000 copies. 2000 saw the release of "Good Love" and although it didn’t receive a full release, in the UK, it received critical acclaim.

Inner City’s female counterpart to Paris Grey (and now a permanent member of Inner City) is the inimitable Ann Saunderson. Known for her contribution (vocally and lyrically) to songs on the debut album “Paradise”, the second album “Fire” and the critically acclaimed album “Praise” of which Ann co-wrote the anthemic 1992 hit, "Pennies From Heaven”. Ann also provided guest vocals (and co-wrote) two of Octave One’s single releases, including the hugely successful dance anthem "Blackwater" (which was covered twice in 2010 alone) and "Somedays." Ann has worked with a who’s who of dance music talent and will play an integral role along side Kevin Saunderson and Paris Grey in the creation of Inner City’s new artist CD. 

Inner City is considered to be one of the most influential dance acts of all time. Beloved for some of dance music’s most influential singles.
