The Nothing Special commenced operation in 2008 and has been presenting mind changing electronics at two club residencies - fabric in London and Blackmarket in New York ever since. Guests have included Dopplereffekt, The Emperor Machine, Pole, 2652, Conforce, Horror inc., Covextion, Addison Groove, Anthony Rother, Shackleton and The Moritz von Oswald trio. More often than not Craig is the sole DJ providing soundscape support around the live performances of the guests.
"My idea was based on a collaboration with live music. By changing the mood throughout the evening we can cover an immense amount of ground, musically. Between the acts I re-adjust the sound always making it right for the next act, correcting tempo and feel so that the way is paved and the platform is correct. Some of the acts have a particular sound which needs to be introduced gently. On occasion we demand a lot of the listener and the room may drift from the normal club experience but this is where the magic lies. I am particularly proud of the night and it is my honour to present some of my favourite artists." – Craig Richards
