DJ Craze Announces New Friday Residency at Mansion Miami

DJ Craze ain't like those other DJs.

A repeat offender on our Best of Miami lists and six-time DMC champion, he was even recognized by Time Magazine as America's Best DJ in 2001.

Basically, Miami is lucky as fuck to have him, and you should never, ever sleep on one of Crazearoni's sets.

Fortunately, we're about to hear a lot more of the world-renowned mix master, because he just agreed to a residency at SoBe's superfancy Mansion nightclub. And he's gonna bring that heavy, ass-blasting shit for his debut Friday, January 25.

UPDATE DJ Craze chats with Crossfade and calls new Mansion residency "a challenge, I would never get kicked off."

Get ready to party at "Craze's House" as part of Mansion's Super Fridays. And since it's a house party, you know he'll be bringing the heat with everything from rap, ghetto tech, booty house, electro, Bmore, and all that good shit.

Plus, he's one of the greatest turntablists and scratchers the world has ever seen. So it'll absolutely be worth the VIP price tag for a chance to see him from behind the decks.

Homie's always doing cray-ass tricks and acrobatics back there, all while never lettin' the beat slip.

"We are always looking to outdo ourselves at Mansion," said Mansion's director of talent Najib Elmasri in a press release, "and our residency with DJ Craze, under the moniker 'Craze's House' allows us to offer our guests an experience unlike any other by welcoming the legendary sound of Craze along with the special and surprise guests that Craze will bring along from time to time."

Get into the spirit with this free end-of-year mixtape Craze put together, highlighting everything he thinks will make 2013 the best year in music. Ever.
