Two weeks ago, Reflections of a DJ a.k.a. the R.O.A.D. Podcast had A-Trak and Roctakon on the show to discuss their recent Twitter debate. This week, the show sat down with Craze, who also took part in the argument.
At one point, co-host DJ Crooked asked Craze how he goes about planning his sets. Craze revealed that he didn’t plan his sets until he started working with Zack.
Watch an excerpt below and the full episode here.

Like previous installments, part four features hip-hop and bass music intertwined with turntablism, and political and industry commentary.
“There’s a lot happening in the world,” the mix’s description on SoundCloud says. “Get involved in the conversation, repost and share.”

On Tuesday, the Boiler Room London hosted Craze, a three-time DMC World Champion, and Jon1st, the 2013 DMC Online World Champion. The event, which was their debut on the show, was intended to put a spotlight on the art of turntablism.
Jon1st opened with an hour of drum and bass and glitch-heavy tracks, while Craze dropped an hour of hip-hop and bass music, including his usual critique of modern DJ culture.
Watch both of their performances above (Craze’s begins around the 1:01:10 mark).

2017 is upon us, and what better way to start off the year than with a new mix from Craze and Four Color Zack? Continuing their critique of modern DJ and American culture, the duo has returned with part three of their 2¢ series. Like the previous installments, Craze and Zack’s latest statement features a variety of hip-hop and bass music weaved together with world-class turntablism and thought-provoking samples.
Stream the mix below.
A-Trak has revealed that he’s organizing a new DJ and beat battle that will take place later this year. The Fool’s Gold boss made the announcement during Craze‘s appearance on DJcity’s MikiDz Show on Monday night.
“[Turntablism] is not old school. It’s not some shit from the old heads or whatever,” A-Trak said. “There’s ways to do it with the sonics of music that’s current. We all listen to new music, we all play new music, and the new routines are updated to fit with the new shit, and I think the battle world needs to adapt to that too.”
A-Trak added that Craze, Four Color Zack and “all the other homies” would judge the battle.
Craze, who was standing next to A-Trak during the announcement, described what to expect from him as a judge. “I’m gonna be the Simon Cowell of that shit,” he said with a grin. “I’ll be like, ‘you’re not supposed to be out here. What are you doing?'”
A-Trak said he would reveal more details about the competition in the next couple of months.
Watch the announcement below and stay tuned for video of Craze’s set and interview.
