The Paradise Megamix
formed in 1987 when Kevin Saunderson, producing hardhitting Techno House
in his basement while attending college, was in need for a voice of a
track. By recommendation of Chicago producer Terry Jackson, Paris Grey
teamed up with Kevin Saunderson - 'Big Fun' was born. This single charted
worldwide via the 'small' deroute of the British charts, and Detroit House
was introduced to a larger audience.
This technoid music was tailored to the mainstream clubbers, and so it
was no wonder that it had a big impact on the dancefloors, other hits
like 'Good Life' and 'Ain´t Nobody Better' followed.
album 'Paradise' (titled 'Big Fun' for the US) did also well in the European
charts though failing to enter the US pop charts, and 'Paradise Remixed'
added more spice to the original versions.
After being forced by Virgin to alter their style to became a US version
of Soul II Soul, the star of Inner City began to descend, and with the
third album 'Praise' Kevin Saunderson decided to put this collaboration
on hold and went back to his roots with the Reese Projects and other remix
Detroit House is largely gone from the charts and the minds, it had a
great influence of other genres like the Technopop of the 90s which are
still noticable, and Inner City were one of the main reasons for that.
