Scratch master Craze mixes Fabriclive 38

Fabriclive 38 is a rally ride though 74 minutes of no excuses dancefloor joy, shamelessly laden with guilty pleasures and block rockin' renegade styles from one of the most skilled DJs ever to stand before two turntables - DJ Craze.

Taking cuts from current darlings of the hour like Cool Kids, Bangers and Cash, Chromeo and Kid Sister to stalwart sounds from N.O.R.E, Coldcut and Tuff Crew to licks less likely from Earth, Wind and Fire, Armand Van Helden and The Chemical Brothers, this is a mix'n'blend masterclass.

"I wanted more of a club sound. I'm mixing up a lot of styles – I have some freestyle tracks on there, some bass tracks on there, I'm putting 'Ho Fo Sho' on there, I've got some hip hop tracks on at the beginning...I wanted to also big up Eli from New York, he's really dope right now, doing a bunch of remixes. His sound is like – well, I describe it as old school freestyle meets house. I wanted it to be a dance, club, mixed up sound – but not mashup. It's just more fun club stuff, some Klever stuff in there, some of Sinden's stuff in there...and it's ALL scratched up. I'll try to do the whole turntablist thing. I can't do a mix where it's just tracks playing." - Craze
