Carl Craig Announces ‘All Black Digital’ Live Stream Series


Carl Craig is celebrating Black History Month with All Black Digital – a streaming series hosted on Beatport and Qwest TV.


Since finding love for electronic music over three decades ago, Carl Craig solidified his place among other legendary performers on the scene. Not only did he bring the sounds of Detroit out of his own mind for the masses to dance to all day, but he also fostered the growth of many other artists with his iconic Planet E label as well. Additionally, Carl Craig has placed himself at the forefront as an intellectual leader in the music and arts community, which has become especially important as the world continues to examine global race relations.

This year, Carl Craig is celebrating Black History Month this year by embarking on a multi-week livestream series titled All digital black. Launched in partnership with Beatport and Qwest TV, he intends to educate and spark further discussion on topics such as Make Techno Black Again and AfroFuturism. Additionally, a performance of South Africa Constitution Hilla former prison and military fort that previously housed Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi among many others, will take place at the end of the month.

It is a great honor to return to South Africa and play in the homeland of my ancestors. The music I have been making, producing and performing for 30 years is a tribute and a continuation of what was born in Africa and runs in my blood here in Detroit.

I’m so happy to be a part of this event at Constitution Hill and teaming up with Qwest TV and Beatport to broadcast. I’ve been a Quincy Jones fan since I could read liner notes, and drawing attention to my SA brothers and sisters and the good work of Bridges For Music is icing on the cake.
