A legend in Brighton
Dance music is prone to hyperbole, but you'd be hard-pressed to come up with anything but words like "legend," "titan" and "giant" when describing Carl Craig's impact on the electronic scene. Producer, remixer, label boss, DJ, the list goes on and on.
Emerging at the end of the 1980s as the leading light of Detroit's 'second wave' of techno artists, Carl Craig has been relentlessly inventive, prolific and inspirational for over 20 years. His production work (as BFC, Psyche, Paperclip People and more) stands among the best electronic music ever made, while his esteemed label Planet E is without doubt one of electronic music's most treasured and important imprints.
He's been nominated for a Grammy, performed his music with a symphony orchestra and traveled the world evangelizing for forward-thinking house and techno from Detroit and beyond - and that doesn't even begin to scratch the surface.
It goes without saying that this very special intimate show is a unique opportunity to catch the man himself spinning the music that made him who he is today.
