Carl Craig Commemorates 20 [email protected]#&ing Years of Planet E

Two decades ago, dance music visionary Carl Craig helped marshal in the second wave of Detroit techno by launching the leftfield-leaning label Planet E. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the imprint, Craig is set to release on 22 February a Planet E “best of” digital compilation entitled 20 [email protected]#&ING Years – We Ain’t Dead. The 25-track project will include electronic music classics like Moodymann’s “Dem Young Sconies” and Innerzone Orchestra’s “Bug in the Bassbin”, along with next-generation mindbenders like Recloose’s “Can’t Take It [ft. Dwele]” and a previously unreleased remix by Craig of Kenny Larkin’s “You Are”.

And in conjunction with the digital release, Craig will be hosting on his website a competition for fans to vote on tracks that should be pressed onto a limited edition Planet E vinyl box set.

Finally, starting in March Planet E will also began releasing singles from its back catalogue, which will chosen and remixed by, among others, Ricardo Villalobos, Richie Hawtin, Kevin Saunderson and Mad Mike Banks. First up will be a Luciano remix of Recloose’s “Can’t Take It”.
