Editors’ Notes While his peers Juan Atkins and Derrick May were forging Detroit techno's futuristic funk, Kevin Saunderson explored the softer, more soulful side of the genre with his group Inner City. Their 1989 album, Paradise, artfully framed Paris Grey's smoky vocals with soulful keys and rippling drum programming, creating an R&B-infused strain of house music that still sounds fresh today. It takes just the opening chords of "Big Fun" or "Good Life" to send shivers down the spine.
