Obviously, DJ Craze and Kill the Noise aren't new artists. Craze has been running the deck game as a world champion since the late '90s. And Kill the Noise has been working the scene since the early 2000s with a drive so tight that even Korn tapped his talents for 2011's dubstep-inflected Path of Totality album.
