Carl Craig to Release ‘Versus’ Album


Back in 2008 Detroit techno icon Carl Craig teamed up with Les Siècles Orchestra conducted by François-Xavier Roth, Basic Channel’s Moritz von Oswald and the pianist Francesco Tristano to perform a live set which combined electronic and classical music. Now Craig’s Planet E label and Infiné are uniting to release an official album in March. Produced by Craig, the Versus album “mixes both orchestral and electronically enhanced versions of Carl Craig’s music in a ground-breaking techno collection of eight-tracks adapted for orchestra.” Craig will perform the album live with The Versus Synthesizer Ensemble, where he will be accompanied by five musicians. The first dates will be announced in January 2017. Craig succinctly says of the release, “Versus is my desire and dream come true to have my music interpreted by an orchestra.”
