DJ Craze BIO

If the first thing you know about Craze is that he’s the only solo DJ to win the DMC World Championships 3 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. You want proof? Fine. 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”. Yeah, Time Magazine. He went on to rack up more than 8.5 million views on his Traktor YouTube videos alone, and THE 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 (A-Trak, Kid Cudi, Danny Brown), and then headed out for a full US tour with Yelawolf in the last half of 2011. With two releases in 2012 – the Selekta EP, and Deeper with Codes, he’s hasn’t taken any time to slow down, instead focusing on a battle record with arguable the greatest scratch DJ of all time…Q-Bert. From Jamaica to Australia, Japan to Nicaragua, Craze has toured the world over, stunning audiences and DJs alike with his top-notch showmanship, and masterfully unique blend of rap, dubstep, and Miami bass. So when someone asks you, ‘Whatchu know about DJ Craze?”, feel free to let them know a thing or two.

Ape Dums BIO

Ape Drums’ unique dancehall rhythms mixed with big room sounds have already garnered support from some of the world’s top DJs. His tracks have received heavy rotation from the likes of Major Lazer, Dillon Francis, Kill The Noise and Flosstradamus to name a few. As a veteran of the dance world, he started DJing/producing at 15 and was involved with his high school dance crew. His breakout single “Worl’ Boss” Ft. Vybz Kartel set the music industry on fire with its addictive rhythms and instantly became a hit. 2013 was a solid year for Ape Drums, releasing both remixes and originals on Dim Mak, Mad Decent, and Slow Roast. There’s no telling what heights this Houston native will reach next.
