Carl Craig's Top Ten


This weekend Detroit techno legend Carl Craig takes his Demon Days party to San Francisco for the first time. Over the last couple years the event series has taken him to New York, Chicago, and other U.S. cities, in between the many other show dates, remixes, and DJ mixes that keep him busy. XLR8R was lucky enough to snag a few minutes of his time and find out what's keeping him excited these days, be it music, books, or visits with the family.

Catch Carl at Mezzanine this Friday, February 9, for the S.F. premiere of Demon Days. Not in the Bay Area? Tune into the Demon Days radio show.
