Carl Craig presents 69 LIVE - exclusive 2011 Live Dates
As part of the celebrations for the 20th anniversary of his Planet-E imprint, legendary Detroit producer Carl Craig is touring Live under his 69 (pronounced six-nine) guise, for the first time.
As 69, Carl Craig produced the first ever EP for Planet-E in 1991 – ‘4 Jazz Funk Classics’ – a release inspired from his love of the disturbing sound and vision of English avant-garde group, Throbbing Gristle.
Following releases included iconic masterpieces ‘Sound on Sound’, the frenetic ‘Jam The Box’, the beautiful ‘Desire’, ‘Pungtang’ and an album from 69 - ‘The Sound Of Music’. Planet-E also released a limited edition 69 vinyl box-set in 2009, entitled ‘The Legendary Adventures Of A Filter King’.
