Carl Craig / Paperclip People – 1991
Oh yes Carl, come on, scream your soul out and be yourself, man. You're acting the tragic and grace-touched really, really well. Lovely orangey hues by the way, very vintage late 90s techno artwork, absolutely love it.

Carl Craig did this nice Crystal Waters/Basement Boys sampling track in 1991 (so that's 15 years before T.I.), as part of a cult Paperclip People 12 inch mostly known for its classic breakbeat title track, "Oscillator", arguably the tune that really got me into techno (and which I discovered listening to the greater than great "Mondial Twist" show on parisian radio station FPP). Anyway, this is marvellous, speedy and juvenile, excited and classy. Should be spun today, shouldn’t it ? Btw much love to Crystal, who's still in the business apparently :

As a bonus, for those who don’t know it, here’s "Oscillator" itself. I don't have the original version with the long intro on this computer, but I'll upload it this weekend.
Take care. Special hello to you if you're coming from DC's.
