A composition taken from his acclaimed second full-length release, 1997’s More Songs About Food and Revolutionary Art, 'At Les' is classic techno at its finest. The track was originally composed whilst Carl watched a fire across the water from Detroit. “At Les is a song that has gone through time, it has held its own. It is one of those pieces where the instrumentation could change but you know it’s there.” wrote Carl. This Versus edit built around Craig's canonical techno-jazz version is a flourishing soundscape of oboes, trumpets and violins conducted by an authoritative synthesizer. Four widescreen cinematic minutes of classically engineered rebirth proves once more that a true classic track does not need to bear allegiance to a musical genre.  

 

 

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 album will be released May 5th on CD/LP/LP limited edition and exclusively on Apple Music/Itunes. May 12th on all other digital plateforms.  Preorder now
