Craig discusses listening to The Electrifying Mojo on WGPR radio in the 80s, saying that it was a special station for the black community, as it connected and introduced techno to generations of listeners.
“It was such a big impact for me that I knew what I wanted to do these days as a DJ… Knowing that this music came from Detroit was just another level of amazing.”
