  • Carl Craig's will release a 12-inch with a new orchestral rendition of his track "Sandstorms," backed by a previously unreleased take of the 2004 original. The Detroit techno giant has been at work on the Versus project since 2010, when he first linked up with Les Siècles Orchestra in Paris. They've finally shared news of an album, which includes two original compositions by techno producer and classical pianist Francesco Tristano, as well as symphonic versions of Carl Craig classics, arranged and engineered by the man himself. There's no tracklist for the LP just yet, though it's scheduled to come out on May 5th via French label InFiné. They've offered up a first taste with the Sandstorms 12-inch, which includes a new version of his 2004 single, re-recorded with Les Siècles Orchestra, as well as a previously unheard version of the original. You can listen to Sandstorms over at The Wire. Tracklist 01. Carl Craig - Sandstorms (Versus Version) 02.
