Unquestionably one of the best scratch DJ’s in the world will lay out the secrets to a long and prosperous career.
About DJ Craze
Craze's life is a legacy of rags to riches. And that he proved 3 times at the DMC World Championships, an unprecedented record, and a title that no other solo DJ has yet to match. While Craze is regarded internationally and unquestionably as one of the best scratch DJs in the world, it's still astonishing to see his overwhelming number of titles on paper: Craze has won first place for the USA DMC Championships in 1998, World ITF Scratch Off Championships in 1998, ITF Western Hemisphere Scratch Off Championships (1998, '99), Winter Music Conference Scratch Off Champion (1996, '97, '98, '99), East Coast DMC Championships (1997), East Coast Rap Sheet Championships (1996) and Zulu National Championships (1995, '96), to name but a few. Additionally, DJ Craze claimed 2nd place in the first DMC Team Championship with his Allies' crew (which included fellow champions A-Trak and Infamous) in 1999 and then in 2000, the Allies' won the Team Championship title, taking it from the previous year's winners the Scratch Perverts.
Garnering universal respect from peers is not common for DJs-come-producers. U-Tern somehow managed it, and a reputation is steadily building for this humble Vancouverite. Spreading his obvious infatuation for all things music through his blog and weekly radio show, U-Tern is one of those individuals whose passion and drive are enviable. All that is secondary though: immaculate, charming disco-funk tracks are the standout here. U-Tern’s use of real instruments and his exceptional production chops translate into truly authentic pieces of music striking that balance between nostalgia and the 21st century.
About Dublum Records
Dublum Records is a new label that releases music aimed to move your body and dynamize your brain. The music you will find in our catalog takes influence from many forms of dance and urban music released in the last 4 decades while keeping a firm handle on the now and the future. The label was founded in April of 2010 by Mark Penner (Cyclist) and Nathan Reimer (T:CHR) as a vehicle for releasing their various ongoing projects. Releases for all three artists on the roster are planned for this year. First up is the "Double Dip" EP by Cyclist on June 17th. In August, Lebeato will release their debut EP "Mania" and in the fall Moses Mayes will start the release of a series of EPs called "Trifecta".
