Aphroheadâ€™s first full-length album, Resurrection, in over decade has recently been released, one of the standout tracks â€˜Grown Man Cryyâ€™ sees a single release complete with a superb Carl Craig â€˜Brainy Grimlinâ€™ rework.
A heavy Detroit influence can be heard in the Aphrohead classic â€˜Grown Man Cryyâ€™, fittingly reworked by the master of the techno scene Carl Craig into a pulsating anthem suspended in time. The original cut (as put into words by DJ Mag) acts to â€œremind the world of the depths of talent and personality that made Aphrohead such a perennial force previously.â€
Aphrohead created a precedent in 90's techno on halcyon labels Bush, Global Cuts, Power Music, Thee Black Label & Radical Fear. His Felix Da Housecat alias went on to form the epicentre of the electro-clash scene and it was through this alias his friendship began with Crosstown Rebels pioneer Damian Lazarus, then at City Rockers. Carl Craig is a key player in Detroitâ€™s techno sound, recently releasing â€˜The KMS remixesâ€™ and consistently delivering on his own Planet E label. He began recording at the turn of the 1990's, using a number of aliases to release innovative ambient, techno, breakbeat and future jazz sounds including BFC, Psyche, Paperclip People, 69, Designer Music and Innerzone Orchestra. He is also the co-creator and artistic director for the widely successful Detroit Electronic Music Festival.
