Over the years Solid Gold have really pushed the envelope when it comes to championing urban culture in the city. By understanding the intrinsic relationship music has with ‘The Culture’, they have been able to bring out the best it has to offer. Bridging the future and keeping true to its foundations, they have brought together b-boys, dancers, hip-hop heads and clubbers all under one movement.
To celebrate the collective turning 3 this year; Collective Minds and Canvas will bring us the mighty DJ Craze, KoFlow and Hybreed Society for that Solid Gold vibe ya’ll been waiting for!
DJ CRAZE (US)
Not only is DJ Craze is the only solo DJ to win the DMC World Championships 3 times over, the manner in which he’s achieved it through adversity is one to admire!
His family fled Nicaragua for the US when he was 3 in the midst of a civil war, suffered through Hurricane Andrew in ’92 (the US’s costliest hurricane at the time) and was a total nerd through his teenage years. But while others would chalk this up to a lifetime of hurt, Craze let it fuel his passion. Instead of giving up, he slayed the DMC’s when he was just 20.
Two more DMC wins later, Time Magazine named him “America’s Best DJ”. Yeah, Time Magazine. He went on to rack up more than 8.5 million views on his Traktor YouTube videos alone, and THE Kanye West took him on tour as his own personal DJ. As if that wasn’t enough, he started Slow Roast Records with Kill The Noise, an imprint of the infamous Fool’s Gold Records (A-Trak, Kid Cudi, Danny Brown), and then headed out for a full US tour with Yelawolf in the last half of 2011. With two releases in 2012 – the Selekta EP, and Deeper with Codes, he’s hasn’t taken any time to slow down, instead focusing on a battle record with arguable the greatest scratch DJ of all time…Q-Bert.
From Jamaica to Australia, Japan to Nicaragua, Craze has toured the world over, stunning audiences and DJs alike with his top – notch showmanship, and masterfully unique blend of rap, dubstep, and Miami bass.
