Album: Carl Craig, Sessions (K7)
Sunday 24 February 2008
Detroit's Carl Craig, one of the key originators of techno, continues to be as prolific, inventive and exciting as he ever was.
A shame then that he isn't more widely heard, but this continuously mixed two-CD set of classics, alternate mixes and recent hits provides a convenient entry point for the uninitiated.
It displays the breadth of his sound, from the proto-drum'*' bass of 1992's "Bugs in the Bassbin" to the stark but rich minimalism of his Delia Gonzales & Gavin Russom remix for DFA records, and last year's jazz-tinged "Falling Up".
Always, though, with a deep groove and an assurance of excellence.
