Filling in for Mr Sonny James this week is non other than Craig Dash!
Over a decade ago, Free Agents founder, Craig Dash was a Baltimore transplant seeking sojournment in the west. During this time, a collective of artists, musicians, and lesser luminaries gathered regularly at the storied, Grandstar Jazz Club in the Chinatown district of Los Angeles. It was there, Dash notes, “that I learned a good bit about the commonalities of the human condition, and more importantly, how playing the right records can best express that.” Over a decade later, Craig Dash has “played” upon these rhythmic sensibilities to distinguish himself as a DJ, who offers both audiences a shared sense of nostalgia, as well as an inch off their waistlines. Whether lounge or nightclub, he subversively adds finessework to his seamlessly harmonic mixes; emphasizing the timelessness of classic material. Relying more on the crowd to dictate the direction of an evening, Dash uses subtle themes to establish a mood that, at times, is as varied as the people that come out to hear him play. Part purveyor, part preservationist, the now Philadelphia-based DJ won’t claim favor to just one specific style, genre or taste, "to be honest, I'll play anything with a nice bottom groove, or rich percussive element...horns too, anything with horns".
