Detroit: Home of Car Assembly Lines and Epic Techno DJs
What is it about Detroit that turns out epic DJs like Carl Craig? Some would chalk it up to car assembly lines and MoTown Records, while others might lean towards an era of drafty elusive warehouse parties fueled by driving techno. The one thing that is for certain, is that Carl Craig has slammin’ it on the turntables and in the studio for over 20 years. He has always pushed the limits on dance music, absorbing elements of jazz and soul in his wake. He’s been called one of the godfathers of second wave Detroit Techno. From his first release in ’89 to producing a plethora of tracks on his own Planet E record label, he’s had his hands and ears very involved in the development of dance music and we’re stoked he’ll be playing for us at the Works this Saturday.
