Scratching the Surface

Miami's DJ Craze is one of the few turntablists to fully embrace dance music as a touring, full-fledged, drum-and-bass DJ. After winning the DMC world championships an unprecedented three times, he retired from competition and turned his attention to the tunes. Recognizing the myriad similarities between drum-and-bass and hip-hop, Craze has applied his cutting and scratching skills to dance music and managed to carve out a unique niche for himself in the process. He takes to the decks as a true performer rather than someone who just spins records. Catch DJ Craze this Thursday, March 3, at the Church.
