The Planet E chief is next in line for a triple-CD mix on Ministry Of Sound.
The revered Detroit producer, DJ and Planet E label boss will follow the likes of Andrew Weatherall, Gilles Peterson, Fabio & Grooverider and Francois K in mixing a Masterpiece compilation. Spread across three CDs, the package comprises one disc dedicated to the music Craig is inspired by, one disc of music he is playing now and one disc of the producer's own brand new compositions.
Craig says his relationship with the radio in his hometown of Detroit inspired the mix. "Even though all of my professional career I've been travelling 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," he says. The tracklisting for the mix will be revealed at a later date.
Ministry of Sound will release Masterpiece by Carl Craig on June 3rd, 2013.
