Originally hailing from the streets of Liverpool before relocating to Harrogate. At the young age of 13 Craig developed a passion for Hip Hop which was heavily influenced by the likes of Eric B and Rakim, Boogie Down Productions, Public Enemy, and Big Daddy Kane. After getting his first break at the age of 18 supporting Simon "Bassline" Smith at The Mix Club in 1990 he then progressed his DJ career further. Craig established himself as a DJ in Manchester's Club & Rave scene in 1992. Between 92 -97 he played at clubs & events in the UK and internationally before finally making his home in Perth Western Australia. After taking a 10 year break from the decks the itch that never left got scratched. Craig continued his DJ career in 2007 playing for promoters such as Loaded Dice and ONE.AM, and furthered his success in the DJ world by expanding and running his own successful Phrenetic Beats nights with boat parties and events in local boutique venues. Huge thanks go out to Todd Terry who influenced his decision to purchase his first set of decks at only 17 years old, friends for putting up with his mixes for the first year, Sasha for so many amazing nights, and for being cutting edge back in the day. Respect to Kenny Ken and Slipmatt for being such an inspiration and influence in the development of his unique style. Shout out to Jumping Jack Frost for the massive spin back, DJ Sam the most gifted underrated DJ who never got his big break and one of the nicest blokes you could ever hope to meet, Mr Steve Dawson, Craig's first ever manager. Big ups to DJ Tim of Utah Saints one the most gifted, talented men to ever grace the ones and twos, Dez for giving Craig his first gig. Simon Bass Line Smith for encouraging Craig to following his dream. Laurence Ritchie for showing what natural talent is. R.I P. Andrew White, such an old soul who is sadly missed every day. Those who knew him will know how lucky and blessed they were to be with him for that short time, he touched so many people souls and will never be forgotten. Kudos to Craig's friends who had to put up with 'shit' mixes every week but gave great and positive feedback.. Deon for giving Craig his first gig in Australia, and for giving Perth Loaded Dice. "I do this for the love of music and the joy it gives me to rock the fuck out of a crowd and take them on the journey they came for."
