CRAIG DASH (Free Agents / Alright! / Hot-N-Fun)
Craig Dash is a DJ, artist, and educator based out of Philadelphia, PA. He is the Co-founder of Free Agents, a referral-based DJ, production and design team. As a visual artist, he has collaborated on projects for Quentin Tarantino, Wayne Isham, Justin Timberlake, and Pharrell Williams. He holds a BA in Visual & Performing Arts from UMBC, and an MA in Education from Temple University.
In 2002, the Baltimore native found himself sojourn in Los Angeles, quickly becoming familial with a collective of artists, musicians, and lesser luminaries who frequented the storied, Grand Star Jazz Club in the city’s Chinatown district. 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 express that universally.” Over a decade later, Craig Dash has employed the same rhythmic sensibilities to distinguish himself as a DJ who offers audiences a shared sense of nostalgia, as well as a glimpse musically into new forms. Regardless of the venue, he subversively goes against the routine, improvising harmonic sets that draw from 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. He has DJ’d alongside iconic Philadelphians such as King Britt, Rich Medina, Skeme Richards, and DJ Cash Money; European indie-house producers, Moonboots, Zimmer, Alkalino, and Hot Chip; and has served as the hip hop group, Camp Lo's, show DJ. Craig Dash is without question, a tastemaker who vehemently rebukes being pigeonholed to just one specific style, genre or taste.
