    Timeless Classic Techno 12", with "Oscillator" being the main track with its laid back vibe, I was always a big fan of "Paperclip Man" with its rough beats and dirty driving rhythm, "Gypsy Man" as you would anticipate has that Crystal Waters "Gypsy Woman" riff with a slight twist along with a deep dirty bassline. Fantastic 12" & well worth a listen.

          Oscillator is just a wonderfull Detroit track. Warm synths, fantastic drum programing and a sublime build-up that goes crazy at the end.
          This Retroactive release is a bit more up beat than other Retroactive 12", but do not let that stop you from buying it. Like all Retroactive records, it will be expensive.
          Classic Carl Craig and a true divine moment in Detroit techno.

            Oscillator is a stunning track, one of Carl Craig's finest. Paperclip Man is a dirty percussive workout great for mixing. Total classic.
