A mixcast dedicated to the wonderful Carl Craig.
Over the last couple of weeks, the CEO of Planet E has released a retrospective compilation celebrating 20 years of Planet E and re-released his own Landcruising album.
Carl Craig (or Paperclip People, Innerzone Orchestra, C2, ...) has always been my favourite techno producer. He was one of the first to experiment with rhythms different from the oblique 4/4 techno pounding. Before the world took electronic music serious, he was already looking for a combination of electronics and jazz.
The number of classic releases is high enough to fill a couple of these mixes. There were no criteria for the songs selected: I just handpicked them as I was going along. I didn't even start the mix with the intention of making it a C2/Planet E mix. That's why the Redshape track is in there. (Eventhough there's no real relation between Redshape and Carl Craig, I just think it fits perfectly.)
