Much respected for his diverse knowledge of music, Craig’s DJ career has been flowing steadily for over 30 years, from his 1st gig in his home town of Edinburgh 1987, to regular Southport Weekender/Suncebeat appearances as well as numerous gigs and radio appearances across the globe.
Always listening to, and collecting music as a kid, Craig Smith began searching out club nights that would quench his musical thirst. In the early 80’s it was parties like the Edinburgh’s Manifesto that really inspired and turned him on to a fresh and exciting scene that none of his school friends were even aware of. A stalwart on the scene from a young age this eventually lead him to make his DJ’ing debut in 1987 at Edinburgh’s legendary club night The Hooch. Craig’s initial influences were boogie, jazz funk, soul and the emerging sounds of rap and house and for him it was a natural progression into the modern production techniques and sounds of dance music.
Craig Smith is known for his uncompromising attitude to the music he loves and has always refused to be categorised, preferring instead to be known for playing “quality dance music”, his sets are a testament to 30 years of telling stories through music.
