About the artists
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 scene. Craig released his first track in 1989, and one of his earliest mentors and first collaborator was Derrick May, a pioneer of the Detroit scene. Staying true to his Detroit roots, Craig helped launch the Detroit Electronic Music Fetsival (DEMF) in 2000, and remains a strong force in the festival today. He was also voted in the ‘top DJs that rule the world’ in Rolling Stone magazine, and also featured on the cover of Mixmag, the largest dance music and club scene publisher. Come and experience the legendary Detroit house and techno in Amsterdam this weekend at Shelter!
