"Florida, the Sunshine State." Sure, it's a cute slogan. But does it really embody the true essence of Florida? How about the soul of the state's largest metropolis, the Miami metro area? It certainly does not. "Florida: Bass and Booty, We 'Bout That Life," on the other hand, is a far more appropriate catch phrase because it incorporates the region's rich musical culture and honors the Big Mango's abundance of culo.
And if Gov. Rick Scott had any decency, Lord Voldemort would appoint DJ Craze to a Cabinet position. Or at the very least, he'd make Craze the state's official DJ. A Miami bass genre expert, the three-time DMC world DJ champion recently compared his skills to that of a master chef when New Times caught up with him at his Slow Roast Thursdays Kickoff Party. "I don't play that fast-food music," Craze said. "My tunes are slow-roasted."
And if you're in the mood for a heavy meal of bass drops and booty shakers, DJ Craze is bringing his home-cooked mixes to Speakeasy on Friday. - Victor Gonzalez
