Friday, October 7th • Bar opens 8PM, Roof 9PM, Club 10PM

Carl Craig is a Detroit native who celebrates his city and its legacy in his every movement. In doing so, he has created an incredible body of work. His list of collaborators include LCD Soundsystem, Tori Amos, Caribou and Derrick May. With boundless class and unimpeachable integrity, Mr. Craig has forged a legacy for himself, with his widely-acclaimed label, Planet E Communications, and his intellectual, yet infectious DJ sets. "Cultural visionary," "Dance music icon," "Realest mother****er alive:" these are all labels which suit Carl Craig better than simply "DJ/producer."

Stranger Than Paradise (STP) returns with South African brothers Alex & Digby, who are known for their esoteric vinyl collection and Flash As A Rat imprint. Mazi R is tasked with opening the roof.

The Audio Zen crew returns to FlashBar featuring MOdERN CLASS' Trev-ski, 4 Hours of Funk founder Graham Hatke and Baltimore veteran Alex Gardel.

CARL CRAIG:

Carl Craig is described as a creative visionary, a groundbreaking electronic music icon, an inspirational artist, an esteemed Grammy-nominated composer, a world-class DJ and an ambassador for his native Detroit. Yet the common thread that runs through Craig's broad musical canon and creative projects is a resounding fascination with futurism. Carl Craig has cultivated a unique path as an artist, entrepreneur and civic leader, guided by his tendency toward forward thinking.

His remixes discography boasts some of the most desirable names in music – LCD Soundsystem, Hot Chip, Junior Boys (nominated for a Grammy Award), Gavin Russom & Delia Gonzalez, Theo Parrish, Tori Amos, Can, Goldfrapp, Friendly Fires, Caribou, Tiga, Unkle, Yello and more.

Staying strong to his Detroit roots, where he still lives today, Craig helped launched the Detroit Electronic music Festival in 2000 and remains a strong force at the festival today. He has also created and launched his non-profit 501-C3 Carl Craig Foundation: "The concept is to find ways to re-educate kids about what's interesting musically that you can't get on the radio… To develop a new music scene that follows the legacy of Detroit music being diverse and interesting, to spot out the most talented young musicians coming out of high school and lend small financial grants to encourage music education at a higher level."

When Craig explains his philosophy, his wry sense of humor seeps into his explanations of far-reaching concepts that merge worlds together. "I have a very special career. When I feel that I'm tired of going on the road I can go in the studio. When I'm tired of concentrating on the studio I can go on the road. I can work with concert pianists, jazz musicians or rock guys. Very few people have that range of interests. Very few people juggle a career that they choose specifically." No one else can pull it all together quite like Carl Craig.

ALEX & DIGBY:

Having grown up in South Africa on a staple diet of Dire Straits, Tina Turner & Bryan Adams, brothers Alex & Digby had to find their own way musically. Playing in bands for many years, and having spent the best part of a decade as engineers in landmark London studios, they are deft practitioners of analogue sound. Obsessive vinyl collectors across genres, they are fast becoming known for their esoteric sets and bold selection. Their experimental imprint FLASH AS A RAT is a vent of continual eccentricity, and has garnered wide scale underground support.
