Lab LA is our weekly post-work party where we stream the best live American and International DJs right from the heart of Hollywood. This week we're kicking off the holidays in style with a Detroit Love takeover featuring legends Carl Craig and Stacey Pullen.
Techno pioneer Carl Craig is the force behind Detroit Love, a project honouring his home city and spreading Detroit techno all over the world. Its launch at ADE 2014 featured Motor City natives Moodymann and Recloose, and for this special takeover in the Lab LA Craig will be joined by fellow Detroit don Stacey Pullen.
One of the most respected and consistent dance music producers of all time, Carl Craig has managed to blend various genres of music into his own style and commands massive respect from the underground. His record label Planet E Communications has put out music from other key players such as Kevin Saunderson, Moodymann and Kenny Larkin – and in 2000 he helped launch the Movement Electronic Music Festival.
Stacey Pullen was an integral part of the second wave of Detroit's electronic music boom. He got his start under the legends Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson and Juan Atkins – after decades of making quality tunes he continues to tour and release exciting, influential music. He has seen a massive year with his Blackflag imprint and in early 2015 he's due to release his first EP in almost two years.
Carl Craig recently released his superb remix of Caribou's 'Your Love Will Set You Free' and you can check it out here.
The pair will be throwing down at Sound nightclub after The Lab, a night that simply cannot be missed – you can get tickets here.
The Lab LA is powered by Void Acoustics, with cocktails courtesy of AGWA and streamed from the Project LA Patio. You can watch the Detroit Love takeover below from noon on Saturday or via Mixmag TV.
