The term ‘legend’ might be one that’s bandied around with far too much careless abandon in contemporary electronic music, but one man who is definitely deserving of the title is Jesse Saunders. As the man behind ‘On & On’ (arguably the first ever ‘techno’ record) he has also been involved with other classics anthems a la ‘Love Can’t Turn Around’ and ‘Waiting on My Angel’. With his new EP, the fantastic Kaleidoscope, signalling a real return to form, we decided to dial up Jesse to get his fave afterparty hits. And what a classic list he chose!

When the sun comes up you have to let the sunshine in! All hands in the air when I play this track! Everyone knows this immortal phrase.
