Label Mates : Planet E Communications
Planet E is a Record Label run by Carl Craig . . .
The year was 1991, The boundaries were pushed in hoping to scale the curios scape's of both sound and space. Retroactive was no more. A vibrant force within the musical community of Detroit, Carl Craig continued to adapt, learn and explore. A new label arose, Planet E Communications, as a means to complete creative independence from the major label industry, as well as a platform for organic expansion and expression of the dance floor driven genre of techno music.
A visionary continues to broaden his body of work; each transmission release thoughtful and unique, persistently shifting sound, leaving behind the boundaries of electronic music, and traveling beyond, to landscapes newfangled and unknown amidst the language and thunder of subterranea, one hub remains intact, releasing vital sonic collage.
Open your mind. Spill yourself across the broken concrete walk-ways, the odd shapes of buildings, dark and ominous, clawing at your shadows as you strive to recreate something both beautiful and new. A green light glows, a natural hue humming all the time, through the night, as the steam rises from below the streets… Deep within the comfort of city walls, creativity grows, grasping, reaching as far as it can go
