    'It's A Shame': What a cut- amongst the classic ambient silver drums of Evo/Galaxy/Static, and often overlooked, It's A Shame carves a path akin to the sounds of the time from Derrick May & Kevin Saunderson, making for another true D.T anthem. Indispensable.

      Anyone know who did the artwork on these? The early fragile, transmat and masahiro etc labels always made me wonder if it was the same person? dope style anyway, always liked them.

        'Galaxy' is using samples from 'Peut Etre... Pas' by Liaisons Dangereuses.

          BFC - B2 - It's A Shame is a different version than on Psyche/BFC - Elements. The version on Elements sounds like it's been "pitched down"

            What came first, the drum loop on "Galaxy" or the drum loop on Shut Up and Dance's "Derek went mad"? Both released in 1990. One would presumer SUAD sampled Carl Craig but Carl is very sample-happy himself. Who knows???

              They mixed the track ACID SEXX by Bad Boy Bill into the track GALAXY...

                For this album Carl got his inspiration from the group Liaisons Dangereuses with the self named album Liaisons Dangereuses. Mister Craig single handedly made here the blue print for the Birmingham sound which now dj's like Surgeon, Regis, James Ruskin & max duley are most famous of. A stunning ground breaking album with the darker side of Carl Craig. Is there anything Carl Craig can't do?

                  This is a fantastic record; I can’t believe I didn’t pick up on it earlier. Evolution is a timeless classic, still sounds fresh 15 years later. Its chilled tone and addictive snare pattern, enables you to sneak it into a variety of sets & styles.

                    I find this record (specifically "Galaxy") such a timelessly great example of Detroit Techno. With it's haunting pads and laid back percussion loops it should be studied and taken on board by all people wishing to produce music and label it techno.
                    Considering the year of release, you have to take your hat off (once again) to Carl Craig for such forward thinking.
                    • Well, it seems that this release had been repressed these past 5 years, so happily, there must be more people who knows it now :-) . "Static friendly" is a terrific crunchy breakbeat track, weirdly groovy as good Detroit sound can be, ultra minimalistic: a major dj tool.
