If you needed any further evidence that Carl Craig is the man, let this double-disc mix serve as indisputable proof. This release shows him in top form, seamlessly blending his original productions with his remix work. Several of Craig’s projects show up for the celebration, including Paperclip People, 69, Innerzone Orchestra and Tres Demented. From the classic stomp of “Throw” to the tribal insanity of “Demented (Or Just Crazy)”, standing still is not an option (cabaret laws be damned).
The remixes are just as epic, as evidenced by Craig’s reworking of Theo Parrish’s “Falling Up”, a minimal pulse that morphs into life-size distortion enveloping your speakers. His remix of Cesaria Evora’s “Angola” is Mother Africa caught up in the spirit with a host of sonic tweaks and euphoric peaks to guide its movement. Bouncing between house and techno with no fast-forward moments to be found, Sessions is future classic gold for electronic dance aficionados.
