Carl Craig is the man. Boasting a global reputation for his role in the emergence and success of techno, this Grammy-nominated Detroit native has consistently pushed boundaries in both his production and performance style. His artistic authenticity and tenacity shines through his many eclectic collaborative projects as well as his position as owner of acclaimed record label Planet E.
With DEMF season just around the corner and an impressive resume, there is no doubt why Ministry of Sound trusted Craig with the newest installment of their Masterpiece series.
The approach is simple: a seamless three part mix of what Craig is currently playing, listening to, and inspired by. He reveals that his relationship growing up listening to Detorit radio will play a strong role in his inspiration for the Masterpiece mix. “Even though all of my professional career I’ve been traveling around the world and my scope of music is very global, how I listen to music is still very rooted to how I listen to radio, how it is now, and how it was in Detroit when I was growing up.”
Set to drop on June 3rd, it will be quite exciting to glimpse into the passionate mind of someone with such vast musical knowledge. Although the tracklist is not yet available, this mix is expected to encompass a multifaceted selection, as Craig takes us on a personal journey through coveted tracks spanning decades of musical history.
