Our GDD friend and familiar Craig Williams has put in overtime to make a name for himself in the techno-sphere, tallying up releases on Motorik, Nervous, Sweat It Out, NEST (OWSLA) – not to mention hosting numerous production tutorials on his YouTube channel and giving away serious tricks of the trade. His newest release “Believe It” just dropped this week on the Toronto-based imprint BADLQQK, and the Aussie held nothing back on this jackin’ techno heater. Here’s what he had to say about it:
I definitely went for a more minimal feel than before. I had been listening to a load of great classic producers like Robert Hood, cajmere and green velvet to name a few and i think the the house vibe just crept in. The song defiantly developed from choosing a select number of machines in the studio and just jamming out.

The productions of Craig Williams go a long way in my MP3 library – his remixes are known for taking dance pop anthems and morphing them into techno laced dance floor stompers. A hefty trait to be known for, to say the least. His latest is no exception taking Duke Dumont‘s 2015 fanfare “The Giver” and reducing it into it’s simplest four on the floor counterpart. Ripe for anytime past midnight, it’s sure to bring the ruckus to any club or festival setting.

Over the past couple of years, our homie Sam Luria, aka Charles I, has been building out an impressive catalog of releases, which includes his stand out collaboration with Craig Williams, the This Is It EP, out on Discobelle Records, his Attrition EP, and more. Charles I now brings us his latest gem, “be.,” that showcases his dark techno sound with dynamic, detailed percussion, driving rhythms, and various industrial accents for a proper warehouse tune.
This release marks the second installment of an elaborate audio/visual series between Charles I and photographer, Dustin Hollywood. Charles I provides the music and Dustin brings the artwork for a unique pairing that is just as pleasing for your eyes as it is for your ears.
Back in March, we threw one hell of a soiree with the Sweat It Out! crew in Miami during WMC. The takeaway included a most excellent hangover and an even stronger appreciation for what these Australians are doing to dance music. There’s no better example than Go Freek‘s We Can Ride release, which dropped today on the Sweat! imprint. There’s a mess of pads and bellowing bass blasts that dart around a pitched down vocal sample. They’ve dubbed it gutter tech, which more or less makes perfect sense. They also rounded up an A-team of support for remix duty, featuring mixes from Terace, Torren Foot, Craig Williams, and Dom Dolla, which are pretty damn great in their own right. You can pick up full package on Beatport.

It’s an all Australian affair with one of the country’s most prominent techno lords in Craig Williams and his new EP which just dropped on one of the savviest labels in Sweat It Out. Craig’s mastery of all things analog once again shines on this release. His formula of thumping, four to the floor tracks are fit for the clubs, and the title track ‘Saw Throat’ is garnering support from the likes of Claude VonStroke, Crookers, and Yolanda Be Cool. And for all the budding producers out there, send Craig a receipt of your purchase of the EP and he’ll send you a sample pack which includes the stems for both tracks. What a legend!
