Arguably one of Techno music’s brightest luminaries, Carl Craig, has paved the way for innumerable DJs who’ve come after him. Breaking on to the scene, before there even was a ‘scene’, in 1989— Craig dropped his debut release on a Virgin UK compilation, getting his feet wet in the world of dance music.
Soon after, the non-conformist visionary behind the critically acclaimed Planet E, dropped his seminal work “4 Jazz Funk Classics” under his alias 69, catapulting him to notoriety. Playing back to his early works (89-92), the astute listener will find that the wild variety found in his early music, set the groundwork for his diverse career.
Craig, a son of Detroit, has collaborated with contemporaries, like Moodyman, Omar S, jeff mills, Kevin Saunderson and occasionally, thee legendary Narod Niki (if you don’t know, you better ask somebody).
We’re keeping the legendary vibes going this weekend with certified titan. Come get your mind right this Friday, at Treehouse w/ the unmistakable Carl Craig, and support from Black Market Memberships own Taimur Agha!
