DETROIT LOVE 2 (2CD)
2nd entry in the Detroit Love series comes from the man himself - Carl Craig.
Detroit Love present the second release on their eponymous imprint - a collaborative venture from Planet E and !K7 which aims to capture the essence of Carl Craig's beloved event series.
Following last year's inaugural mix from Stacey Pullen, the second entry comes from none other than Carl Craig himself. Across a hazy, funk-driven voyage, he delves into the spirit of his hometown, championing the past and future of the motor city into an expertly curated mix.
With a blend of 90s gems and brand new exclusives, Carl's track selections forge an atemporal vision of quintessential Detroit music. Opening up the mix are two rare, early 90s classics from Ectomorph and Rhythm Is Rhythm, neither of which have been reissued on vinyl for decades, followed swiftly by a 2015 collaboration from Carl Craig and Green Velvet, never before released on vinyl.
New material comes in the form of an exclusive C2 edit of DJ Minx, another exclusive from Claude Von Stroke, tracks from TV Lounge affiliates Ataxia and Mister Joshooa and unheard music from Matthew Dear under his new Brain alias, to name a few. [info from label]
