    He’s painstakingly conceived a uniquely personal concept which, for the first time, includes creating new music for the project.

    Effectively present(ish), past and downtempo, it’s a fascinating glimpse into one of dance’s most fertile minds.

    An hour of sprawling ambient electronic music made on a modular synthesizer, evoking the futurism of 70s sci-fi soundtracks while deftly avoiding cheesy retro trappings.

    It’s a master-level maneuver that underlines the essential theme of the three-disc set, which is that after a quarter century of pushing music into the future, Carl Craig’s still not done.

    The approach proves that there’s still relevance to be found in the commercial compilation. This is largely down to the third disc, titled ‘Meditation’, which serves as a compilation of entirely new material that sees Craig shift his focus from dancefloor fodder to some impressive ambient explorations.

    Even with an album's worth of new material, there's something missing here; the format might be Herculean in scale, but Craig's efforts don't match up.
