Carl Craig - fabric 25

Regular price £10.00

Carl Craig wanted to be a DJ from the age of ten, inspired, like many Detroit techno artists, by the radio jock Electrifyin' Mojo. By the age of twenty he had served a production apprenticeship with Derrick May, releasing under the names Psyche and BFC on Transmat, and begun his own record label, Planet-e. Later, as Innerzone Orchestra, he would produce 'Bug in a Bassbin', the track Roni Size credits as starting drum n bass. Carl has worked artists like Bill Laswell, Herbie Hancock, Marcus Belgrave, Geri Allan, Regina Carter and Rodney Whittaker, and helped forge the careers of Recloose and Kenny Dixon Jnr. among others. As a testament to his commitment centrality to Detroit's music, he was chosen as the creative director of the inaugural Detroit Electronic Music Festival in 2000.

"I wanted to do a hi-tech, hyper mix you could listen to in the car or a café or a banging club. I felt I could do something different, especially by adding claps, sounds and my own vocals. A real party mix." Carl Craig

fabric 25 exemplifies why Carl Craig is also regarded all over the world as a firing DJ. It's a mix only he could make; a thunderous blend of wide-eyed house and techno decorated with live studio effects and spontaneous, giddy vocals. As with everything this peerless electronic musician does, it is loud, proud and entirely individual.
