British DJ and producer duo based in Surrey, formed by brothers Guy Lawrence and Howard Lawrence.
Born: 22 May 1969 in Detroit, USA.
Carl Craig was a key player in Detroit techno's second wave, following the futuristic lead of originators Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson, and Juan Atkins, and eventually collaborating with May. He began recording at the turn of the 1990's, using a number of aliases to release innovative ambient, techno, breakbeat and future jazz sounds.
One such alias, Innerzone Orchestra, issued "Bug In The Bass Bin" in 1992, the track largely responsible for moving drum 'n' bass away from the sounds of hardcore and ragga. He later reconvened Innerzone Orchestra as a jazz/techno combo, recruiting jazz composer/keyboardist Craig Taborn, former Sun Ra Arkestra member Francisco Mora Catlett, and Matthew Chicoine to help him record 1999's album "Programmed".
Matt Chicoine, under alias Recloose, later signed for Craig's own label Planet E Communications, a peerless dance label employing the same eclectic and futuristic ethos that informs his own music.
With releases under many aliases, including BFC, Psyche, Paperclip People, 69, Designer Music and Innerzone Orchestra; Carl Craig has more musical personalities than the average electronic artist. As much as his different guises can confuse though, his music is always easily recognized because whatever he does, it retains that certain Craig-ness of sound. A deep commitment to soul mixed with jazz, often including but not exclusively so, a detroit techno sound, has always been the watermark of his music.
Even when Craig is destroying dance floors with such songs as the classic track "Throw" (or one of the very many versions of it!) there is always a subtleness and attention to detail that separates his music from that of the typical dance music producer.
Electronic music producer from Malmö Sweden based in Barcelona, Spain
Armand began making music in Edinburgh at the suggestion of a respected friend. He spent time experimenting with music and exploring the possibilities contained within his laptop was cathartic relief from the grind of finishing his studies. Later returning to his hometown of Malmö, his interest in making music would intensify thanks to encouragement from his old school friends and a the looming spectre of a 9-5 lifestyle. A move to Barcelona and the end of a relationship resulted in extended sessions watching the classic American sitcom and the music made to reflect that appeared under the name DJ Seinfeld.
He initially started DJ Seinfeld as a temporary side project, but it took on a life of its own toward the end of 2016, when the Season 1 EP was released by Lobster Theremin. The release's meme-like artwork and the jokey-sounding moniker combined with track titles like "Feel de Bum Slap" caused many observers to question the artist's authenticity, and he was frequently lumped in with producers like Ross from Friends and the Winona Ryder-sampling DJ Boring as part of an ironic "lo-fi house" craze. Regardless, the media attention helped boost his career, and additional Seinfeld 12"s were released by Natural Sciences, E-Beamz, and Endotherm in 2017, with debut full-length Time Spent Away from U appearing on Lobster Fury in November.
Detroit-based DJ and producer. Son of Naomi Daniel.
