Renowned producer, remixer, DJ and record label owner CARL CRAIG is one of the few artists who can truly claim to have shaped the sound of modern electronic music. Making music since the tender age of 17, Craig has created everything from ambient soundscapes to techno to jazz over the past 20 years, but it's his work in dance music that is at his core. "Sessions" is a long overdue double mix CD that brings together a personal selection of Carl's incredible back catalogue, from his early work under the aliases PAPERCLIP PEOPLE, PSYCHE and 69 to worldwide hits like "Throw" (recently covered live by LCD SOUNDSYSTEM) and ground-breaking tracks like "Bug in the Bassbin". Alongside the classics, the two discs also showcase why Craig is still such a powerful force in music today with a diverse range of remixes for the likes of XPRESS 2, THEO PARRISH and many others. for his rework for Junior Boys' "Like a Child" he has just been nominated for a Grammy Award in 2008. The selection also includes previously unreleased tracks, alternative versions of his own productions, as well as some exclusive unreleased remixes - which include RHYTHM & SOUND ("Poor People Must Work"), BEANFIELD ("Tides"), THEO PARRISH ("Falling Up"), Xpress2 ("Kill 100"), DELIA & GAVIN ("Revelee") and, or course, Junior Boys ("Like a Child") among many more. "Sessions" reminds US of how exciting and unique Carl Craig's productions and remixes are and why he remains at the top of his game - a retrospective of one of the world's most influential and groundbreaking figures in electronic music.
