Carl Craig has long been considered a mainstay in the Detroit techno scene, and his artful approach to music-making has garnered some wider acclaim. In 2008, he was nominated for a Grammy for his haunting remix of Junior Boys’ “Like a Child.” Craig has expanded the Detroit techno sound by incorporating a wide range of influences and remixing jazz and world beat songs.
