Kevin Saunderson and Frankie Knuckles to trade blows...

The countdown is on for this weekend's FOUND warehouse party in London.

Electronic dance music is lucky enough to share two birthplaces. Chicago gave the world house music, with its sweaty post-disco club environment embracing the euphoric sounds of new technology. Detroit, though, went for something more militant, machine-like and future-driven, with its sprawling streets inspiring the emergence of techno.

Well, this weekend fans in London will be able to witness arguably two of the most pivotal figures in the birth of dance music trade blows. Frankie Knuckles made house before Acid House has downed its first tab, and continues to act as an inspiration with some broad ranging sets.

Kevin Saunderson is one third of the Belleville Three, the trilogy who gave techno its focus and form. Remaining at the forefront, the DJ is capable of mixing his own sterling back catalogue with unknown producers from around the globe - check out this vintage Clash mix for yet more evidence.

Taking place at a Warehouse venue in Shoreditch on Saturday (September 21st) the line up finds Kevin Saunderson and Frankie Knuckles being joined by Voyeur and The Menendez Brothers.

Running from 1pm to 8pm, the day event will be complimented by some night time debauchery courtesy of an after party which runs until 6am. Dyed Soundorom will headline, while the bill also includes appearances from South London Ordnance, The Mekanism and SION.
