Carl Craig presents new album project ‘Versus’
Featuring Francesco Tristano, Les Siecles orchestra and conducted by Francois-Xavier Roth

Versus is a work in progress, a perfect encapsulation of InFiné’s philosophy, which serves a double duty as a platform to foster hybridization between genres, and also as the label’s ten-year anniversary gift to itself. From an initial recording in 2010, the project evolved into a full studio album containing two original compositions by Francesco Tristano and symphonic versions of Craig classics, reworked in the studio by the man himself. The much awaited new album from the Detroit techno producer will finally be available worldwide on May 5th.

The first EP release from the album is the mythical 1994 techno classic ‘Sandstorms’, originally released on the ‘Just Another Day’ EP, with the title as a reference to the Gulf war raging at the time. The new 12″, released March 17th, features the studio version of the Versus orchestral adaptation, as well as an unreleased take of the original, both carefully crafted by Carl Craig himself, on blue-coloured vinyl.
