Carl Craig is described as a creative visionary, an electronic music icon, an esteemed Grammy-nominated composer, a world-class DJ and an ambassador for his native Detroit. The 41-year old producer has cultivated a unique path as an artist, guided by his fascination with futurism and tendency toward forward thinking.


From Craig's early releases in 1989-1992, one can see how much the wild variety found in his early music set the groundwork for his diverse career. He's fortunate to serve as an inspiration to countless artists in the underground electronic music scene. His 1992 Innerzone Orchestra cut “Bug in the Bassbin” was credited as the spark that inspired the evolution of drum‘n’bass. In typical Craig fashion, “Bug...” continued to develop, morphing into a live jazz composition in 1996.

Craig’s prolific nature is reflected in the many recording projects he has used throughout his career including 69, BFC, C2, Innerzone Orchestra, No Boundaries, Psyche, Paperclip People and Tres Demented. This rotating cast of aliases has enabled him to continually explore new directions through a long succession of full-length albums, mix CDs and singles. Furthermore he occasionally appears with the electronic collective jam band Narod Niki, alongside the likes of Villalobos, Luciano, Richie Hawtin, Zip and others.

Craig has produced a seemingly never-ending list of remixes that now extends over 100 cuts, including mixes for the likes of Tori Amos, Can, Goldfrapp, Unkle, Yello and others. He was nominated for a Grammy in 2008 for his mix of the Junior Boys “Like a Child”.

On December 8th, Carl Craig’s China debut at Lantern will be our biggest night yet and as Carl himself acknowledges, “Touring has always been the most important aspect of the music industry for artists. There will always be that desire for human interaction.” So make sure you come down to Lantern, get yourself some human interaction and let Carl take you for a musical ride you won’t forget any time soon!
