Born and raised in Detroit, Carl Craig is one of the pioneers of techno. Inspired by jazz, funk and psych-rock in his youth, Carl Craig quickly discovered electronic music and turned out to be a key player in Detroit techno s second wave. After some experimentation, he met emblematic figure Derrick May who took a liking for Craig s sound and asked him to join his Rhythm Is Rhythm tour in 1989. That marked the beginning of a collaboration that would change the face of techno music around the world. Through his productions, creations, numerous aliases, his own Planet E Communications label, the Carl Craig sound is always recognizable deep, jazzy, soulful, legendary, techno.more>>>
