Q Nightclub presents Forms featuring
If the first thing you know about Craze is that he’s the only solo DJ to win the DMC World Championships three times over, prepare to get yourself schooled. From day one, every uphill battle he faced was met with intense adversity; every kick while he was down only served to help him rise up even stronger. His family fled Nicaragua for the US when he was 3 in the midst of a civil war, suffered through Hurricane Andrew in ’92, the US’s costliest hurricane at the time, and was a total nerd through his teenage years. But while others would chalk this up to a lifetime of hurt, Craze let it fuel his passion. Instead of giving up, he slayed the DMC’s when he was just 20. Two more DMC wins later, Time Magazine named him “America’s Best DJ”. He went on to rack up more than 8.5 million views on his Traktor YouTube videos alone, and Kanye West took him on tour as his own personal DJ. As if that wasn’t enough, he started Slow Roast Records with Kill The Noise, an imprint of the infamous Fool’s Gold Records. So when someone asks you, ‘Whatchu know about DJ Craze?”, feel free to let them know a thing or two.
