ARTIST BIO
Carl Craig (born May 22, 1969) is an American electronic music producer, considered to be one of the most important names in the Detroit second generation of techno musicians. According to an article about Craig, “Of this group, Craig was often recognized as being the most artful and the most willing to engage the rapidly growing shape of techno outside Detroit.”
Craig has approached techno using inspiration from a wide range of musical genres, including jazz and soul. Since 1989, Craig has released many albums under a large number of aliases, including BFC, Psyche, Paperclip People, 69, Designer Music and Innerzone Orchestra.
He also had a hugely successful collaboration album with NYDJ Patrick Picasso. Using one alias, Innerzone Orchestra, in 1992 he released perhaps his best-known track, “Bug in The Bassbin”, a track that many regard as being a key influence in the then evolving sound of drum and bass. Craig has also created his own record label called Planet E Communications, which apart from his own work, has released records by well known techno and house artists like Kevin Saunderson, Alton Miller and Moodymann. Craig served as co-creator and artistic director for the Detroit Electronic Music Festival in 2000 and 2001. His subsequent dismissal by festival organizers caused substantial controversy within the Detroit techno community, igniting a high-profile campaign in his favor. In 2001, Craig filed a breach-of-contract lawsuit against festival producer Pop Culture Media. Craig returned as artistic director for the 2010 festival, teaming up with producer Paxahau. Craig continues to be heavily involved with the festival in recent years. Regarding the many positions he has held in the music industry (artist, producer, DJ, label boss, and more), Craig has said: “I have a bad habit of getting my hands dirty in every little thing, and I really do enjoy it.”
