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.
Craze and Four Color Zack are currently on tour in Australia as their duo 2¢. However, the two took a break last Friday to drop solo sets for Mixmag and Smirnoff Sound Collective’s weekly live stream, The Lab Sydney.
Like his performance for DJcity’s MikiDz Show in May, Craze’s set for Mixmag focused on new hip-hop, R&B, trap, and future bass. It also contained a bunch of unreleased tracks.
Watch Craze’s full performance above and catch him on tour in Asia starting September 14.
