DJ Craze, December 18 at Beta

At the tender age of twenty, DJ Craze had already won the DMC World Championships — which he went on to win twice more as a solo artist and again as part of the Allies crew, with A-Trak and Infamous. Actually, we could fill this entire space just listing the numerous awards Craze has won for his scratching skills, so let's just say he's amazing and leave it at that. He captivates audiences at clubs and raves alike with his unmatchable sets, which typically encompass dance-heavy breakbeats sampling tracks from all over the music universe, from hard, dirty drum-and-bass to smooth, hip-shaking hip-hop. He bounces from one sound to the next, never hesitating or pausing, blending it all together with the dexterity on the turntables that has earned him world acclaim. The sound system at Beta should capture every scribble and scratch, and you won't find a better price than $10 for a DJ of this caliber; catch him when he hits the stage there on Saturday, December 18.
