Another Wednesday brings another installment of our guest mix series, and today we feature our favorite Australian living in Los Angeles, Craig Williams. A master in the studio, Craig astonishes me with his clean productions and remixes, even when he shows me them through an iPod in his Prius Craig has included a healthy helping of his own originals and remixes in this mix topped with some tracks from BNR, Turbo, and Bromance providing for a bouncy Techno soundtrack to your life for the next 72 minutes. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, watch out for this dude. √+
It only takes hours before the newest popular single gets bombarded with bootleg remixes and spreads like wild fire across the blogosphere. The unique recreations however, are always worth the wait. Our friend and GDD familiar Craig Williams had something to prove towards Tyga’s “Rack City” – fashioning a club worthy ghetto-tech spin on the popularized hip-hop anthem.
The end product is pure gold, straying away from overdone bootleg formula and creating his own monster. We’ve teamed up with Craig Williams to give it away for FREE, so grab it below and let the system crank.
Our long time friend and LA based musician Craig Williams has released his signature Music Sample Pack – a FREE collection of VSTi synthesizer presets and analogue synthesizer samples for all your studio needs and desires. Here’s what Craig had to say about the release:
“I just hit 2000 fans on facebook!! So to say a big thank you, I made a sample and preset pack for you guys. For the samples I used analog instruments from my studio and the presets are for Massive and Sylenth. ENJOY!”
The pack is available for FREE DOWNLOAD via Craig Williams’ Facebook page (38.4 MB download size, 49.6MB size on disk, 202 samples in AIFF & WAV format). To get the download link, click Like and then click the Free Sample Pack button.
The samples were captured from various analogue synthesizers, including Roland Juno 106, Korg MS-20, Dave Smith Instruments Prophet 08, Korg Monotribe and a Ladyada x0xb0x. The pack also includes a collection of 16 presets for NI Massice and a soundbank (in FXB format) for Sylenth1 by LennarDigital. Now get to work!
Our friends over at Julien-K are re-releasing their album We’re Here With You today with a gigantic remix package featuring 10 brand new reworks including this one that we’re happy to premiere today from our favorite Australian in Los Angeles, Craig Williams. As Craig does with most of his remixes, he transforms Julien-K’s original into a throbbing, 303-infused Techno monster; readying “We’re Here With You” for maximum club play. Continue Reading
Techno reigns supreme this Thursday at The Central in Santa Monica as we welcome Light Year, Craig Williams, Casino Gold, and a special guest to VERSUS. Light Year has been having one hell of a year, with his huge hit “Moderation” played all over the world as well as recent festival sets at HARD Summer and Identity San Diego. We are excited to welcome him back to the West Side along with a very special guest from Canada.
To promote the recent release of TAI’s new LOSE YOURSELF EP, Dim Mak Records is giving away the Craig Williams Remix for the fans. A monster in its own, the rolling bass and dark stabs in this one take the already massive original and sends it through the techno grinder. Grab it below for FREE, and check out more giveaways on Dim Mak’s #FreeFridays!
This will be a very special week for our Thursday event in Santa Monica, as we’ll be celebrating two birthdays in one. I’m lucky to share the same birthday week as my pal Vivek Srinivasan, who heads up the DANCEiSM side of VERSUS, and we’re bringing in an AWESOME special guest for the occasion — a man who has never played VS before and one who we’ve wanted to grace the 1s and 2s at The Central for a long time. Supporting him will be a surfeit of talent including our buddy from Australia, Craig Willams, a back to back set from BONES and our Miami brother Troy Kurtz, and a closing world debut set from Shadynasty, the newly formed duo project of Shae B and Burn Unit. Needless to say it’s exactly how I want to celebrate my birthday.
