Carl Craig has made his forthcoming 'Versus' collaboration album, where he makes live, compositional versions of his seminal techno classics with the help of a live orchestra and fellow producer and pianist Francesco Tristano, available to stream in full online ahead of the album release this Friday (5 May)
The 14 track album sees the Detroit figurehead team up with the InFine label's Francesco Tristano and the Les Siècles orchestra, conducted by François-Xavier Roth. Classic Craig single 'Sandstorms' was released on clear blue vinyl back in March.

The Versus concept was first rolled out as a live show in 2008 in Paris, also featuring Moritz Von Oswald. Now the live show will also be resurrected with five festival performances at Sonar, Movement, Dour and SW4 in London.
Versus is released on 5 May through Planet-E.
