DJ Sneak
DJ Sneak
One of the second wave of influential Chicago house producers and a member of the vanguard of late-'90s American house producers, DJ Sneak wasn't born in the Windy City but began listening to house soon after his family arrived from Puerto Rico in the early '80s. Because he could speak no English, Sneak gravitated to instrumental music (as well as graffiti art), and became inspired by Chicago legends such as Marshall Jefferson and DJ Pierre. Many of those early innovators had left Chicago for the East Coast by the late '80s, when Sneak was ready to start in the business; by 1992, however, Cajmere had begun a resurgence in the city's classic sound by starting up Cajual Records. Sneak aided in the revolution with a series of singles on Cajual's sister label, the harder-oriented Relief Records. Besides other productions for Strictly Rhythm, Henry St., ZYX, 83 West and Feverpitch (several of which feature Armand Van Helden on co-production, building on the Latin vibes of their heritage), DJ Sneak has also released mix compilations including 1996's Kinky Trax Collection and the following year's Buggin' Da Beats. He also worked in the Gramophone Records store in Chicago.

Founder of the independent vinyl labels Defiant (1993), Magnetic (2001) and Oomph (2002) as well as Leg (1995) for promo releases plus digital only labels Sneaks House (2008) and Sneak Tip Music (2008).

In 1995 he established his own record store called "Sneak Beats" in Toronto (Canada) which sold underground house music on Vinyl and CDs from their store and by mail order. It closed down approximately 10 years later.
Carl Craig
Carl Craig
Born: 22 May 1969 in Detroit, USA.

Carl Craig was a key player in Detroit techno's second wave, following the futuristic lead of originators Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson, and Juan Atkins, and eventually collaborating with May. He began recording at the turn of the 1990's, using a number of aliases to release innovative ambient, techno, breakbeat and future jazz sounds.

One such alias, Innerzone Orchestra, issued "Bug In The Bass Bin" in 1992, the track largely responsible for moving drum 'n' bass away from the sounds of hardcore and ragga. He later reconvened Innerzone Orchestra as a jazz/techno combo, recruiting jazz composer/keyboardist Craig Taborn, former Sun Ra Arkestra member Francisco Mora Catlett, and Matthew Chicoine to help him record 1999's album "Programmed".

Matt Chicoine, under alias Recloose, later signed for Craig's own label Planet E Communications, a peerless dance label employing the same eclectic and futuristic ethos that informs his own music.

With releases under many aliases, including BFC, Psyche, Paperclip People, 69, Designer Music and Innerzone Orchestra; Carl Craig has more musical personalities than the average electronic artist. As much as his different guises can confuse though, his music is always easily recognized because whatever he does, it retains that certain Craig-ness of sound. A deep commitment to soul mixed with jazz, often including but not exclusively so, a detroit techno sound, has always been the watermark of his music.

Even when Craig is destroying dance floors with such songs as the classic track "Throw" (or one of the very many versions of it!) there is always a subtleness and attention to detail that separates his music from that of the typical dance music producer.

His cousin is Doug Craig.
