Craig is one of London’s established talents in the underground club scene. After winning such accolades as the Movida Corona DJ competition in 2009 and in 2005 the the prestigious The Gallery @ Turnmills DJ Competition he has earned main room sets at premier venues with artists such as Nick Warren, Paul Oakenfold, Ferry Corsten, Judge Jules, John O'Callaghan, Astrix, Fergie, Above & Beyond, Infected Mushroom, Sander Van Doorn, Robbie Rivera, Tim Cullen, Marco Bailey, John 00 Fleming, Blank & Jones, Marco Carola, Agnelli & Nelson and club legend Tall Paul and many many more…. In March 2011 he got to play on stage with Chicane, Hybrid, Xpress2 and Tom Middleton at the mighty 02 Centre Proud club in the millennium dome. He also continues to play at a variety of different promotions across the capital.
A keen follower of all things house Craig has been an avid follower of electronic music since the early 80’s – brought up on the disco beats of Giorgio Moroder and the synth pop of the Pet Shop Boys his real clubbing experiences began in the mid 90’s to the backdrop of warehouse raves and the anarchic beats of local talent to his home ‘The Prodigy’. Once immersed in the rave scene he began promoting first early Antipodean trances parties in London notably Quake & Chaos and eventuality this led to taking to the decks himself, winning DJ competitions and gaining residencies.
Craig’s has always played house whether disco, progressive or tech house, but loves the harder sounds as well of techno, trance and more recently psychedelic. His sets are an uplifting journey with pounding bass lines and plenty of euphoric synths and his sets with fellow Lost Dawn promoter Adam Symbiosis have been key to the brand’s growing success.
Internationally, Craig has performed in Australia and Thailand and has also helped a number of good causes by playing for Amnesty International and for Rockride, where he supported Groove Armada’s Andy Cato and recently played New Year Eve for Zuma in Miami and will be launching their new super club restaurant in 2014 in New York.
