NEXUS 21 - Progression Logical

Network’s 30th Anniversary celebration continue with a dig in the vaults finding three timeless treasures from UK Techno pioneers Nexus 21. The “Progression Logical” highlights how skilfully the Stafford duo – Mark Archer and Chris Peat – combined their love of Detroit inspired Techno with North of London Bleep culture. The third track is well and truly an historic piece of Techno history – Carl Craig’s first ever remix no less.

Carl Craig – The KMS Remixes [KMSRMX003]

One Detroit legend takes on another here with Carl Craig tackling some classics from Kevin Saunderson’s legendary KMS imprint. First up is his revision of the classic ”Ahnonnghay” by Inner City with its epic, soaring strings and superb synth lead that just reeks of the Motor City. The relentless handclap workout of his take on Esser’ay’s “Forces” and an honourable mention to the classic that is ”Till We Meet Again” with its razor sharp arpeggio, soulful diva strings and strings arrangement that builds and builds with the Carl Craig touch.

Bicep – Vision Of Love (Carl Craig Edits) [KMS120]

It’s a rare thing for two labels to come together to release a track, but KMS Records and Feel My Bicep have done exactly that. “Vision Of Love” was produced by two London based, Belfast-born blogger-production-DJ duo, Matt McBriar and Andy Ferguson. No remixes have been commissioned on “Vision Of Love”, but KMS is very lucky and very happy to announce that none other than Carl Craig himself, has graciously submitted a ‘c2 Edit’ and a ‘c2 Bonus Edit’, to make this a very special release indeed.

Urban Tribe – Program 1 – 12 [MM025LP]

Not much really needs to be said about a new release on Mahogani Music, especially since it involves contributions from some of Detroit’s greats, including Kenny Dixon Jr, Anthony Shakir, Carl Craig, and last but not least, the main man Sherard Ingram aka DJ Stingray. It’s a single LP which contains twelve tracks – a couple of shorter skits, but most pretty much full tracks. Now maybe time to state the obvious… this won’t hang around long!
