2 – Bio

Craig Gaibler has been passionate about music his entire life. From early childhood, he was classically trained in piano, and spent his young adult life exploring various musical styles. Early in college, in the murky warehouse raves of Seattle, he discovered the electronic music scene, developing his appreciation for all things house. After coming out of the closet and meeting local DJs, Craig began hanging out in clubs, eager to learn the craft of mixing. Craig's passion and history with music motivated him to teach himself digital mixing, and he began putting together mixes for his friends as "Billy the Kid".

In September of 2008, after moving to San Francisco and feeling inspired by the local scene and the encouragement of his friends, Craig began to pursue his dream of becoming a DJ.

Craig's big break happened while attending the world–famous Lazy Bear Weekend in Guerneville, CA. Promoters Harry Lit and George Delmar asked him to spin a last–minute gig, and his career was launched. He quickly began spinning regularly across North America.

Some of Craig’s proudest accomplishments include DJing San Francisco’s notorious Folsom Street Fair, Gay Days in Orlando, The Winter Music Conference in Miami, Play T-Dance in San Francisco, as well as events in Washington DC, Seattle, Los Angeles, Vancouver BC, Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas, and many other cities.  Craig can also be seen in Provincetown, MA each summer at the Crown & Anchor, at Bearracuda events across the country, and is a co-resident DJ of Union with Steve Sherwood at The Beatbox in San Francisco.

In addition to his club experience, Craig produces an extremely popular monthly podcast featured on iTunes, Soundcloud, and Podomatic (Search: DJ Craig Gaibler). Over the past five years, Craig’s podcast has attracted tens of thousands of subscribers around the world, and has been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times.

While Craig loves all types of music, his DJ style ranges from funky and vocal house, to uplifting tea dance hi–energy music, to more progressive, circuit and deep late night sounds. Craig plays what he calls a ‘luscious’ sound, and is known for playing energetic, uplifting music with an emphasis on melodic and layered sounds.

Craig’s philosophy around DJing centers on three distinct desires: 1) to create a journey that dares anyone to leave the dance floor; 2) to play beautiful, fun, uplifting dance music; 3) to introduce creative and interesting records, artists and remixes that help define his unique, luscious sound. Each song is carefully selected to connect to the one before, crafting over time a musical arc that keeps the dance floor engaged to the very end.

Craig is often seen dancing behind the decks, interacting with the crowd and enjoying himself. "Music is one of the most important influences on my life. I feel so lucky to have an opportunity to share my passion with the world. I want to spread that love and enthusiasm every time I spin."
