We interviewed Craig David moments before he went on stage to headline We Are FSTVL 2017
Craig David has had a pretty massive few years.
Having been at the top of his career in the early-00’s, things went a bit cold for David afterwards. The artist who’s first three records charted in the Top 5 of the charts, became a Top 20 artist instead.
But then, TS5 happened.
For those not in the know, TS5 stands for ‘Tower Suite 5’ and is the name of Craig David’s apartment in Miami where he would host and DJ his own parties. After he started broadcasting those parties and his DJ sets on the radio – things started to kick off again.
Following collaborations with Sigala in 2015 and Big Narstie, things started to change. 2016’s ‘Following My Intuition’ debuted at #1 on the UK Charts – his first #1 since his debut album in 2000 and his first album in 6 years…
Congratulations to Carl Fryer for winning this week!
