Dantiez debuts on NONSTOP with ‘El Torque’
Next up on Piero Pirupa’s NONSTOP imprint is Michigan’s Dantiez, son of Techno pioneer Kevin Saunderson. Having seen recent releases on Lost Records, Circus Recordings, and Lapsus Music, Dantiez has been shaking up the Tech House scene and is set to reach new heights. Boasting club-focused high-intensity energy throughout, both ‘El Torque’ and ‘Jumper’ are ones for the early hours.
Dantiez, born and bred in Michigan, is the son of Techno pioneer Kevin Saunderson and singer-songwriter Ann Saunderson. From an early age, surrounded by such inﬂuential creatives, Dantiez knew music was the way for him. Inspired by his generation’s reaction to electronica, Dantiez completely immersed himself in production and DJing.
Directly connected to Detroit’s rich musical heritage, he learnt from his dad and fellow Techno innovators: Derrick May and Juan Atkins, whilst drawing further inspiration from the likes of Marco Carola, Seth Troxler, Richie Hawtin and Dubﬁre. From this Dantiez honed his craft, with songs beginning to reﬂect all sides of his taste pallet: energetic, Detroit-infused, underground but with a Pop vibe that’s still rooted in Tech-House and Techno.
