Week 4 of Kevin Saunderson’s new Detroit Residency features one of the Originators of the SECOND WAVE of Detroit Techno – DJ Carl Craig.

Carl Craig represents the so called “Next Generation” of the Detroit Techno Scene. Unlike the Originators (Juan, Derrick, & Kevin) who were DJ’s who also made wonderful music, Carl Craig was first and foremost a Musician. A young protégé’ of Derrick May, Carl was initially recruited to make music for Derrick May’s Transmat Records but the Carl Craig sound didn’t quite fit the direction Transmat was taking so Derrick created a new label called Fragile Records to present Carl Craig to the world with a sound that many said was way ahead of its time.

Carl spent plenty of time in the studio on Techno Blvd, and ran across his High School friend Damon Booker who happened to work next door at Kevin’s label KMS Records. That chance meeting spawned a new Record Label called Retroactive Records as well as interest in Carl getting behind the decks and learning how to spin Records and become a DJ. Being a Musician and a DJ took Carl Craig’s talent to a whole new level and it showed when he went on to create groundbreaking Music for his own label. Planet E Records.

Being both a Musician and a DJ, Carl has a unique perspective on Music which sometimes expands outside of the Club Bangers covering many moods and feelings, almost like a soundtrack for Life. Kevin Saunderson invites you to come the artistry, influence, and musical diversity of DJ Carl Craig at XM Monday @ Oslo.
