Carl Craig Carl Craig Sessions
- Words: Velanche
- Label: !K7
- XLR8R Rating: 9/10
Since taking a bit of a break from his Planet E label in 2006, Detroit techno production and remixing giant Carl Craig has returned to the fold, offering some solid creative output. Sessions is two mixed CDs’ worth of vintage and new C2, spanning time, space, and a more than a few aliases with dark textures, deep layers, and bumpin’ grooves across genres. From his Innerzone Orchestra alias’ timeless “Bug In the Bass Bin” to his recent Grammy-nominated re-rub of Junior Boys’ “Like A Child,” Craig shows no sign of stopping, and continues to move stealthily past many of his techno brethren stuck back in the ’90s.
