DJ Craze shows us what real #DJing is all about.
A couple of months back, A-Trak took to Instagram to talk about “#RealDJing.” The Canadian DJ discussed how every DJ has their own style, but one thing that all of his fellow musicians need to do is take more risks. Today,Nicaraguan American DJ Craze posted a video that shows dance music fans exactly what the World Champion turntablist was talking about.
Before getting into his routine, clips of Paris Hilton, Pauly D and Steve Aoki performing can be seen while Daniel Tosh’s commentary on DJing plays in the background. DJ Craze then quickly proves the comedian wrong with his insane “New Slaves Routine” set to DJ SNake’s remix of Kanye West mega hit and some fitting quotes from West.
Precision scratching and manual looping are just the tip of the iceberg, proving that although there’s a great expanse between ‘button pushers’ and the insane turntablism that can be seen in the video − and that plenty of techniques in that expanse are real and skilful, there are still very few DJs who are as entertaining as Craze.
Watch DJ Craze’s epic mix in the clip below.
