Tune of the month
Carl Craig 'Sandstorms' (Versus version) (Infiné)
An all-time techno classic reworked by an orchestra with Carl Craig at the helm makes this an instant Tune Of The Month. Nothing else comes close; as soon as those horns start parping out the main riff, it’s game over. The soft keys, hypnotic waves of analogue and spine-tingling strings all culminate in a thing of beauty. Craig’s dream was for an orchestra to recreate his music, but the end result is a dream come true for all of us.
