Uncle Luke called it "the best bass party" he's ever attended. "That shit was dope," DJ Craze told us. Our own Kat Bein called it the "party of the fucking century." And, trust us, she's been to a lot of parties.
Red Bull's United States of Bass, which featured a lineup full of bass gods like Uncle Luke, DJ Laz, DJ Sliink, TT the Artist, Egyptian Lover, and DJ Craze, was hyped to be the party of the year. And, in our opinion, it delivered on that hype.
After it was all said and done, we caught up with Miami's own DJ Craze to try and make sense of what just happened. "You can't even call that motherfucker a DJ," DJ Laz said when he was introducing Craze at the United States of Bass. "You gotta call that motherfucker an innovator."
We agree, and you can check out our interview with him above, where we discuss the importance of Miami bass.
