I've been looking to buy an mp3 version of this, but i cant find one anyhwere. If anyone can hook me up that would be great. I'm mainly looking for the instrumental version of Shez Satan

Carl Craig Delivering a kind of Dark G- House before it was "cool" (Shez Satan). Brainfreeze is another Bomb...Demented Style

Although you could never accuse the man of being complacent or the least bit conventional, it seems he is using his Tres Demented alias for his more <ahem> esoteric ideas. After the loony caveman-house of the first one (a personal favourite!), we get this monster slab of raunchy electro-techno goodness. The lyrics on the A-side are hilarious (delivered by Craig himself!), matched with production that sounds like Juan Atkins having a nightmare. Not to say that Atkins tracks aren't dark, but Craig really is out to scare everyone here, with nasty synth squiggles and hollow bell-like tones bouncing all over the place and a slow, grinding electro beat. On the flip, things just get better - an uptempo electro-tech stomper with slashing guitar and more caveman screaming! The lyrics are pretty minimal here, a single line and some looped grunting, but the production... a repetitive electro-ish bassline, intermittent hand drums and acid synths, and that guitar all put together in a way that is inimitably Craig. Even better, you can mix it with just about anything and get away with it. I guess you can say this has something to do with the current electro revival - it certainly sounds influenced by it - but once again C2 takes it to the next level and beyond. (Has someone elected this guy to the pantheon of gods yet? I'll cast the first vote...)
