Craig Richards

Craig Richards takes artistic license with everything he does. From cutting hair to compelling club-goers to cut a rug, Richards has dabbled in a number of artistic fields over the course of his career. Formally trained as a graphic designer at England's Central St. Martins College of Art and Design and the Royal College of Art, he's lent his considerable talent to commissions by Absolut Vodka and clothing designer Paul Smith, among others. But the most satisfying of Richards's bread-and-butter gigs is behind the decks at Fabric, the London club where he's been a resident for nearly six years. Whereas corporations who commission design work always provide stifling guidelines and restrictions, Fabric allows Richards to play whatever the hell he pleases. And what he actually drops often runs the gamut between dark house and breaks. Find out which tracks are on Craig's list this Friday at Little Mike and Ryan Jaqua's Basement Sessions.
