Artist of the month: Carl Craig

Owner of the brilliant Planet E label, probably the most important name in the Detroit 2nd generation of djs and producers, following the futuristic lead of originators Derrick May and Juan Atkins. He began recording at the turn of the 90's, and produced a number of successful albums, using a number of aliases to release innovative ambient, techno, breakbeat and future jazz sounds. One such alias, Innerzone Orchestra, issued "Bug in a Bassbin" in 1992, the track largely responsible for moving drum 'n' bass away from the sounds of hardcore and ragga. Under the alias of Paperclip People has released his most danceable works like "Throw", and he has remixed for and collaborated with numerous artists such as The Orb, Dave Angel, Yello, Depeche Mode, Scan7, System 7, Bandulu, A Guy Called Gerald, Laurent Garnier, etc...
His new release is "Carl Craig The Album Formerly Known As..."

A triple pack vinyl pressed on the classics label accompanying with a gate fold Planet E album art jacket. True master of Detroit techno steps up again and shows us his old skool techno side, which made him so popular in the first place. Though this album has been released before as ''Landcruising'' some ten years ago, it has been completely remastered and reworked. It also features a new track ''Sparkle'' as well as new ambient versions of ''Teknology'' and ''Home Entertainment''. This music is timeless anyway and there's plenty of people who missed out on this first time around. An essential piece of Detroit music.
You can find the Cd release,too, on the label Rush Hour Recordings.

The Origins of Detroit Techno and Chicago House


The Origins of Detroit Techno and Chicago House
Story by Heiko Hoffmann

"Twenty years ago, two groups of young, mostly black Midwesterners-- influenced in parts by disco, Philly Soul, and European synth-pop-- simultaneously created the two major movements in modern dance music, house and techno. We celebrate those minimal, primitive early pangs of mechanized dance by speaking to Detroit techno pioneers Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson, Eddie 'Flashin' Fowlkes, Blake Baxter, and Mike Grant, as well as Chicago House-DJ Tyree Cooper about the connections between the house and the techno and house capitols."
