5x World Champion / Kanye West & Yelawolf Tour DJ
Fool's Gold / Slow Roast Records label boss
On top of his untouchable turntablist skills and scratch champion showmanship, the world has also recognised that Craze is a second to none club DJ he has toured the globe over. It's the respect from both DJs and audiences alike that has paved Craze's seamless move between hip hop and turntablism to drum'n'bass both serious subzero clique/cult scenes the globe over demanding much of any artist trying to peddle their wares worldwide; to what now sounds like club-style Miami bass, formed with the technical love of hip hop with clean cuts and ridiculously dextrous scratching, but a mix up of straight up rap, ghettotech, raw booty house, old-school electro, Baltimore/Miami bass crossover and sweaty lo-end dancefloor music, making it all but impossible to keep still.

This BK, NY based beat maker is reachin' back to those golden days of hip-hop and house music. The days where you might sit in a record shop for hours searching for that diamond in the rough. His sound is a little cut n' paste, a little production wizardry, and a lot of love. Somewhere between here and there, then and now; thats really the best way to describe Codes take on dance music. This project pulls from his colorful background as the turntablist, producer, party starter, and of course music aficionado. His years of experience on both side of the decks makes him a natural fit on Slow Roast Records, and his production chops make him an exciting name to watch for 2011 and beyond!
