Rabdom L

Rabdom L is the solo project of Craig Hudson aka ‘the Skragg’ – Craig Hudson first burst onto the scene in 2001 as a DJ under the alias ‘The Skragg’ He quickly gained a reputation for seamless and soaring night time and twilight sets.  Soon after he began to teach himself how to produce driven by the dream of playing his own music.

In 2002 Artifakt, Phyx and Shift teamed up with Rabdom L to form the groundbreaking and pioneering SA Record label – Timecode Records. The label gave Craig the chance to showcase his music to the world as Timecode established itself on the Global Underground Psy market and thus Rabdom L began infiltration.

Twisted System is Rabdom L, Shift and Phyx in collaboration. Storming onto the scene with the debut album ‘the Dealers’ closely followed by the 2nd album ‘Core’ saw the infamous trio become a popular outfit locally and abroad. Lucky enough to have played in Australia, Belgium, Portugal, Israel, Mexico, Brasil, Japan and ofcourse constantly in South Africa to the loyal hordes.

After the second Twisted System album Craig began focusing his artistic efforts on the Rabdom L Project. He has enjoyed success and releases on many labels from around the globe and actively represents Nexus-Media Records – A South African based label owned by Shift. In very recent months Rabdom L has signed with Biomechanix Records from Mexico and Replicant Records from Australia In the last years Rabdom L has toured S.America, Europe, Middle East and Far East slamming his unique melody driven psy-tech to ears of all kinds. In 2010 After releasing a stack of singles on Timecode Records,  Rabdom L released his debut EP on Nexus Media entitled – “the Katalyst EP” featuring two tracks, ‘The Katalyst’ and ‘Stratusfear’.

Both ‘The Skragg’ and ‘Rabdom L’ have been regular features in the bustling and bursting Cape Town trance movement since 2001 – regularly appearing at Vortex, Alien Safari, Prism Festival, Rezonance Festival, Beartrap, Groovy Troopers, The Village, Jungala and the likes thereof. The highlights of Craig’s career thus far are playing a four hour set at the legendary 2002 Solar Eclipse Festival and getting to play alongside most of the artists he grew up listening to – Absolum, Dino Psaris, Tortured Brain, Cydonia, CPU, Phatmatix, NRS, Scorb, Digital Talk, Mindcore, Joti Sidhu Psychaos, GMS, Etnica, Cosmosis, Dado Synthetic, Wizzy Noise, Koxbox and more recently with Artist like Bliss, A-Team, Biorythym, Rubix Qube, EMP, Smashed, Exgen and Lost and Found and the list goes on.

Im currently offering a versatile package. As a DJ (The Skragg) I am able to play a range of sets specialising in late night:  Twilight/Sunrise and Full Daytime SunnySide Up. Then the solo project Rabdom L is what it is – made for the Twilight hours but has proved rather versatile depending on the flow of music before and after.

Forthcoming Releases to look out for – 2nd EP  on Nexus-Media -  Augment and EP’s on Timecode  Records (Europe), Replicant Records  (Australia) and Biomechanix Records (Mexico).
