The techno veteran will hit select cities around the world with his new event concept.
Detroit Love, as the name implies, is "designed to bring together and support the sounds of Detroit, and take a little of the techno brotherhood to clubs and festivals the world over," according to a press release. It first began last month with a show in Amsterdam during ADE with Recloose, Moodymann and Mike Banks. The coming weeks and months will see Craig bring the party to select international spots, with the man himself using "a new technical set up with 4-CD deck mixing, looping, live editing and sampling" and video mapping "depicting the surreal urban Detroit landscape." An album is in the works too, though further details for that have yet to be announced.
First up, on Friday, December 5th, Craig will swing through Miami during Art Basel for an all-night back-to-back set with Matthew Dear at Trade, and the following night has him taking the party to Brooklyn club Verboten. Looking ahead to 2015, Craig will host a Detroit Love session at Bloc Festival in Minehead in mid-March and another one at Trade in Miami a couple weeks later (during Miami Music Week).
Craig's confirmed Detroit Love dates are listed below, and more stops are in the works for Detroit itself (during Movement Festival), Barcelona, Berlin and Ibiza. On top of this new endeavor, Craig has another special event coming up later this month: he'll play a Modular Pursuits set live at Gaîté Lyrique in Paris on Saturday, November 29th.
Update: RA has been informed that Carl Craig's next album won't be called Detroit Love. We've also been told that his recent Tokyo show wasn't part of the Detroit Love series.
