- CARL CRAIG
- WILL O’BRIEN
A bona fide musical genius and living legend, Carl Craig’s peerless production and remixing accomplishments have gained him universal respect and admiration across many boundaries, even earning him a Grammy nomination! He began recording at the turn of the 90s, following on from the futuristic lead of originators Juan Atkins, Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson. He became a key player in Detroit techno’s second wave, using a number of aliases to release innovative ambient, techno, house, breakbeat and future-jazz sounds. One such alias, Innerzone Orchestra, issued "Bug in a Bassbin" in 1992, a track that many regard as being a key influence in the evolving sound of drum & bass at that time. He continues to push boundaries to this day, bringing his Midas touch to an array of cutting edge productions. He also heads Planet E Communications, the definitive Detroit label that employs the same eclectic and futuristic ethos that informs his own music.
On this Sunday evening edition Carl Craig will play a special set encompassing the many styles expressed through his multiple aliases such as 69, Paperclip People, Innerzone Orchestra, Designer Music, Detroit Experiment, Moxie, C2 and Tres Demented.
Support from Antwerp’s funk master K’bonus and SUB-SCAPE Escalator Will O’Brien.
