Inner City

2 Bit Thugs

First-generation house and techno outfit from Detroit. The original line-up consisted of Kevin Saunderson and vocalist Paris Grey (real name Shanna Jackson), and scored several genre-defining international hits in the late 80s and early 90s, including 'Big Fun', 'Good Life' and 'Pennies From Heaven'. Inner City continued to record through the 90s (sometimes with Ann Saunderson, rather than Paris Grey, on vocals), now with the addition of new member Tommy Onyx. And in 2017 a new line-up was unveiled, consisting of Saunderson and his son Dantiez, with vocals from – variously – Ann Saunderson and Grey plus guests who so far have included LaRae Starr and Steffanie Christi'an.
