If you are in the Bay Area there is one really great lineup at the Demon Days party at club Mezzanine in San Francisco tonight featuring legendary Detroit producer/DJ Carl Craig along with Gamall (Demon Days, NYC), plus the Bay Area's own longtime UK transplant Jonah Sharp under his Spacetime Continuum moniker featuring Nigerian drummer Sikiru Adepoju. And to top it off, local turntable crew [KONTROL] DJs featuring Alland Byallo, Nikola Baytala, Craig Kuna, and Sammy D will also be spinning throughout the night.

Carl Craig, accurately described as "the forefather of the second wave of Detroit techno," picked up where Juan Atkins and company started with that strain of electronic music in the Michigan city. In addition to being a super-talented, dedicated producer/DJ/remixer, Craig is also a committed cultural anthropologist and in 2000 was chosen as curator of the first Detroit Electronic Music Festival (something he since discontinued, as curator but not as a performer). As is evident in the above recent interview with the artist by UK based dollop, Carl Craig is always aware of and giving props to his city of Detroit and all the artists who have hailed from "the motor city" over the years including Kevin Saunderson, Bob Seger, Iggy Pop, carl craigand the White Stripes.
