What’s your favorite memory as DJ Craze?
Too many memories but one of the best ones has to be when I won the third time DMCs in London at Millennium Dome. My whole family was there and it had never been done before. It was my proudest moment and it was the single performance that made my career.
Who is your favourite artist at this minute?
Right now my favorite artist is this kid from Miami called JWLS .. he’s only 21 and has mad some of my favorite club bangers this year. He’s a monster and can make Moombahton, Trap/Bubblin, Hip Hop, Dubstep … anything and he does it well. My favorite performer right now is Jeremy Ellis, the best mpc performer EVER!.
Are there any Australian producers catching your attention at the moment?
I’m feeling Wax Motif’s music. And honestly I don’t know that many producers from out there. I probably do but can’t remember right now.
What is the song closest to your heart?
Pharcyde’s “Passin Me By” always has a special place in my heart cause it brings me back to high school when no girls liked me 🙁
90% of people reading this are probably bedroom producers – what’s your best pro-tip for kids starting out making beats?
Don’t just watch youtube tutorials, get in there and be creative. The only way your gonna make it is to be yourself and be original.
What do you have in store for your Australian tour?
I’m bringing my own flava to Australia. I always bring the skills but this time I’m bringing my homie Codes with me with a bunch of new Slow Roast tunes to show off.
To you, what remix is your favourite of all the songs you have made or featured in?
I think my favorite remix I’ve been a part of so far is Baron’s “Nosher”. It is a Drum And Bass Classic and I remember the reaction that it would get at clubs & festivals … it was amazing and I’m proud to have been on that tune.
Have you got any other talents?
I think I’m a great motivational speaker ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
