Party Guy Records 2 Year Anniversary
Born Craig De Sean Adams and raised in Detroit, Craig came to dance music like many of his Motown brethren, via the radio. Detroit radio jocks made lasting impressions on the young artist. Mixing records since 1982, Craig has been indoctrinating people with his own take on Detroit dance music, which is very much an amalgam of his radio predecessors. The introduction of scratching and rapping to non-Hip Hop genres of music, this style is something that could only have come from Detroit.
Along the way, DJ Assault was born. DJ ASSAULT A.K.A. CRAIG DIAMONDS ‘The STREET NARRATOR’ is hard at work with his label and a place to finally call home ‘JEFFERSON AVE’. Making his mark as a well established international DJ since 1997. Assault continues to globe trot yearly all around the US and to over 23 European countries. The United Kingdom, Australia, Brazil, and Japan are also among countries that have felt the bass. DJ Assault is also the man behind a whole new set of beats — the man responsible for some of the most infectious hooks this side of the Mississippi. However, Producing records since 1995 Assault has been making some of the most talked about booty-bass accelerated funk, and hip-hop tracks in existence.
