Slow Roast Records boss and all-around DJ legend Craze has dropped “Disconnect 2 Reconnect,” a cinematic-style DJ mix. At an hour in length, he’s discovered an innovative format for evolving DJ culture during the quarantine.
Musically, the performance is made up of a blend of pop-adjacent hip-hop, R&B, and bass music. Visually, it’s a non-stop highlight reel of music videos, memes, and other entertaining video clips.
On his Twitter account, Craze noted that he worked on the mix for three months and called it “a masterpiece.” Premiering via his Twitch channel on December 30, 2020, notable DJs like Skratch Bastid and DJ Green Lantern have used phrases like “life-changing” and “too cold” to describe the set.
Grab downloadable copies of the mix through the Slow Roast Records website.
