It's been a few years since Carl Craig's Detroit based independent label Planet E Communications has released an artist full-length and Craig hasn't chosen just any album for his label's return to releasing full lengths. This is a very special record from his fellow Detroiter, former neighbor and long-term close friend Kenny Larkin who also happens to be one of the most original producers to emerge from Detroit. Take the 1st single from the album 'You Are' which is based in part on the phenomena of 'The Secret' - Kenny's vocal here is something that wouldn't have been featured on earlier Larkin albums prior to 'Funkfaker.' It's a track that sees him expanding beyond the dancefloor into some kind of new twisted song territory that most defintively isn't pop - it's electronic, it's Detroit, it's twisted. So there we have it - 'You Are' in on 'the secret' now. Kenny Larkin is back. Planet E is releasing albums again. Techno with Detroit roots is alive!
