Craig Richards is a curious creature. Staying loyal to his sound and crowd, as oppose to basking in the often short-lived spotlight of the global DJ circuit, he’s an understated and innovative breed of record player.
Craig has achieved world-wide recognition by staying in one place. The success of his work at Fabric is undeniable. A residency like no other, the night being built around Craig as opposed to the guests he invites, he’s managed to play week in, week out at the club for over eleven years whilst still DJing regularly around the world.
His sound takes in everything from sparse, dubby house and deep electronics to off-kilter, late night electro and percussion-heavy techno.
Craig Richards has been responsible for setting up the musical platform to bring the who's who of cutting edge electronic music to the UK and break them into the scene we know today. Acts like Ricado Vilalobos, Luciano, Matthew Dear, Tiefschwarz and Cassy are regular fixtures alongside Craig so we are very proud to be showcases his impeccable music taste at our industrial basement space of Soundcontrol!
In support of our fabric hero we have drawn in an exclusive live act from one of the freshest UK talents around, Subb-an. The years of commitment in the studio have been turning heads to the skills of the Below resident and 2011 is set to be the year that Subb-an comes into his own. At only 24 years old he has been carving his own unique take on house music, with productions released on Crosstown Rebels, 20:20 Vision, Spectral Sound, Culprit and BPitch as well as launching his own imprint One Records.
To top off the bill we have our own favourite Manchester resident DJ, arnaldo.. Known by his friends as Will, he can be found supply the local scene with vinyl behind the counter at Easternbloc Records, Oldham Street and spinning some of the best underground electronic music at the amazing meandyou parties at Soup Kitchen... we couldn't have thought of someone who would suit this party more!
