• INTERVIEWS: Q+A CARL CRAIG

    By Halcyon

    In the minds of many, the name Carl Craig epitomizes Detroit Techno. Although he was neither the first nor the flashiest of the original Detroit innovators, his 20-plus year production and club career can boast of nearly no wrong turns nor wanderings into inconsistency. If Juan Atkins is credited with the initial push over the top andDerrick May distinguished himself as the best DJ of the famous quartet, from nearly the beginning Craig was present in the background quietly pushing the developments that would lead into the second wave of Detroit music and its spread to the furthest corners of the globe. Although the exact extent of his work behind the scenes will likely never be known, as label aide to both KMS and Transmat he adeptly learned the business end of the trade, and early studio help he received from Derrick May was returned in spades as he joined his older predecessors on their groundbreaking European tours and also for their recording sessions. If early efforts asPsyche, BFC, and 69 revealed a creative mind rapidly progressing and moving through ideas faster than most ever get them, by 1995 his name was synonymous with the best and most bracing Techno the Motor City had to offer that combined deepness, hardness, and a restless futuristic and experimental aesthetic that plowed down everything in its path.

  • SESSION 913: SLOW DISCO SATURDAYS 03.19.11

    Mixed by Pets for Less & Bruce Tantum

    Pets for Less
    Pets for Less is a new duo on the disco front, consisting of friendsAlex Fish and Mike Fisher. The two only joined forces in January and share a creative spark both in the studio and behind the decks, so we’re very excited to hear what these fresh talents have in store for us (they’ve also promised to give us a rinse of some of their own, unreleased productions). Both seasoned DJs and producers in their own right, the two share a rich palette of musical tastes inspired by a lengthy number of artists and labels. However, of late they nod towards the Hot Natured nu disco sound, noting it captures their “general love for all things funky and trouble-making.” As innocent and sweet as their moniker entails, prepare for some badass-style disco this time around…

    Alex Fish (aka Holosound)
    Holosound (aka Alex Fish) is one of New York’s best-kept secrets. Ever since he emerged on the scene in 2004 as a two-man production, later becoming a one-man powerhouse, Holosound’s reputation for quality and consistency has permeated many corners of the global dance-music community and caught the attention of discerning club-goers and musicians alike. Following the exceptional success of Holosound’s monthly headlining night, “Citric,” at The Vault in New York City—a night which ran unbroken for four years straight—Alex and his former production partner,Noah Becker, launched Citric Recordings in 2008. With appearances from Tokyo to Toronto, Helsinki to London, Phuket to Estonia and all over North America—Alex has been turning heads and earning the respect of his fans and peers the world over. His unique style and knack for energizing dance-floors has also helped land Holosound gigs in support of many of the world’s top DJs—including Luke Fair, Satoshi Tomiie, Josh Wink, SOS, Kaskade, Audiofly, Desyn Masiello and others.

    Mike Fisher
    A recent Brooklyn transplant hailing from Washington DC, Mike Fisher has been a mover and shaker in the scene since 2003. As an established DJ he has played alongside the likes of big name headliners like M.A.N.D.Y., Matt Tolfrey, Lee Foss, to name a few. As one of the founders of the DC-based promotion crew, Mnmllife, he is one of the forces behind our capital’s growing dance music scene. Currently, the team is transitioning their brand into “Life,” steering away from the minimal sounds of the past and moving towards House and Disco’s warmer territory. In addition to being an active figure in the city’s nightlife, he is also boasts an esteemed background in music production having worked with the award winning artist Deep Dish as their studio engineer for 2 years, where he assisted in various labels such as Yoshitoshi and SCI+TEC Digital Audio.

    Bruce Tantum
    Does the name sound familiar? It should. DJ, journalist and all-round music-enthusiast, Tantum has been a fixture within the city’s electronic music scene since the days when clubs Studio 54, Limelight and Centro-Fly were alive and pumping. Today he is the main club editor for Time Out NY and has probably interviewed more DJs than the number of kernels in a bag of rice.

    He is an essential voice and reliable source for the music, artists and trends within this far-reaching electronic music culture, whether he is covering a new album, party or festival. On top of his talent for the written word he DJs too, gigging throughout the city from rooftops to radio shows and is also a frequent guest in the UK, regularly playing alongside the DJ History crew spearheaded by Bill Brewster and Frank Broughton. Although he doesn’t parade his DJ skills don’t underestimate hits modest profile – this guy has plenty of taste and plenty of talent.
