Craze at Sunday Night Bounce
Who: DJ Craze
What: Sunday Night Bounce
When: Sunday, March 13
The Sunday Night Bounce hip-hop club night at Garfinkels is bringing in Miami mix-master DJ Craze this weekend.
Craze is a three time world champion of the internationally-recognized DMC DJ skills showcase competition (1998, 1999 and 2000) and has also taken top prizes in ITF, Zulu Nation and East Coast Rap Sheet battles.
The turntable technicians progressive sets of hip-hop, breaks and drum n bass are presented with a style one admirer likened to "a mad scientist who slices and dices beats into a breathtaking sonic concoction."
In addition to his skills behind the decks, Craze is an acclaimed producer, with a discography that includes re-mixes for Propellerheads and The Herbalizer.
His Nexxsound mix CD on DMC Records has been deemed a bridge between the hip-hop and jungle/drum n bass genres, described as "a testament to his pioneering vision of melding the mentality of a battler with the street smarts and savvy of the jungle elite."
Sunday nights show will have a definite jungle/drum n bass flavour starting with the warm up set by local DJ Jungle Souldier.

Malente at Foundation
When: Tuesday, March 15
Foundation becomes die Grundlage this week with a visit from German DJ/producer Malente.
He may have drawn his moniker from the quiet German town where he was born, but Malentes rockin sets of nu-funk/electro house and breakbeat tracks have taken him all over the world.
Hes also a renowned producer the man behind the track We Came to Party on steady rotation at Mr. Fisters GLC Saturday nights, and other funky booty-grooving rulers.
If you want to hear some Malente you can throw down your own set on his website (www.malente.dj). Hes installed a web mixer which allows you to play DJ with mp.3 snippets from his album No Risk No Funk on a set of virtual turntables complete with manual and auto crossfaders and 18 different sound effects.
As much fun as virtual Malente is, the real thing will be way funkier with way better sound.
