In Miami, DJs are a dime a dozen. For better or for (usually) worse, anyone with a laptop and a Facebook profile can potentially jump on deck and take over the party.
Fortunately, in the land of eternally thumping bass, a few real DJ talents emerged. Perhaps the most decorated, and genuinely cool, of those few is six-time DMC champion, DJ Craze. The Miami native has even been recognized by Time as America's Best DJ.
While Craze is certainly no newcomer to the game, the world-renowned scratch DJ, producer, and label head hasn't shown any sign of slowing down. With a residency at Mansion, a monthly party at the Garret to showcase his label Slow Roast, and a whole slew of projects in the works, it's safe to say we can continue to expect great things from this homegrown superstar.
Tonight, Craze will make a rare trek up to Lake Worth, where he'll throw down a solid set for the bassheads at the Speakeasy Lounge's dubstep night, Proper Dosage. To help get us pumped up for the party, the turntable master took a moment with New Times to talk about his new Slow Roast party, what kind of set we can expect at Proper Dosage, and why music will never die.More »
