CRAIG SMITH BIO
Craigs DJ career has been on the go for fully 20 years, from his own famous night, ‘Audio Deluxe’ to numerous gigs at every major club across the globe. His 10 year residency at The Honeycomb in Edinburgh saw him play, host and gain the respect of all the players on the dance music scene. Guests at his club nights have included: Masters At Work - Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez and Lil' Louie Vega, Phil Asher, "Jellybean" Benitez, Bugz In The Attic, Domu, Mr V, Paul 'Trouble' Anderson, DJ Deep, Osunlade, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Ashley Beadle, Kenny Carpenter, Kerri Chandler, Frankie Feliciano, DJ Spinna - all of whom have rated Craig's parties as one of the best to play in Europe. Currently Craig is resident at new deep house and disco party Heavy Gossip in Edinburgh as well as regularly guesting across Europe and beyond. Always listening to, and collecting music as a kid, Craig started searching out club nights that would quench his musical thirst, and in the early 80's it was parties like the capital'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. His 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. He is known for his non-compromising attitude for the music he loves and has always refused to be categorised preferring to be known for playing "quality dance music". This has lead to an impeccable international reputation with gigs and radio appearances worldwide, and in his own hometown he is notorious as Irvine Welsh's favourite DJ with a mention in his books. So far all of Craig’s recording work has been met with great critical acclaim.
