Elements 1989-1990 compiles much of Carl Craig's earliest output before he started his own label, Planet E, and began to achieve increasing levels of popularity with side projects such as Innerzone Orchestra and Paperclip People. The Psyche tracks were released on Derrick May's Transmat label, and the BFC tracks on May's other label, Fragile. Though relatively lo-fi and primative by today's standards, this is quintessential Detroit techno and showcases Craig's talents as producer even at this early point in his career when he was around age 20. Thankfully these rare tracks were compiled by Craig on this 1996 CD compilation released by Planet E.
