Craze Earns Third-Straight DJ Championship

DJ Craze once again ruled supreme at the 2000 DMC-Technics World DJ Championships held at London's Millennium Dome this past weekend, winning the individual title for a third straight year.

The Miami-based Craze, who edged out Australia's DJ Dexta and Britain's Mr. Thing in the individual competition, also shared the DMC-Technics World Team Championship with Canadian spinner A-Trak, one of his partners in the DJ supergroup The Allies.

The win for Craze and A-Trak also provided the duo with a bit of revenge from last year's team event at the World DJ Championships in New York City (see "Craze Retains DMC Technics World DJ Championship Title").

This year, Craze and A-Trak managed to beat out U.K.'s Scratch Perverts, composed of turntablists Tony Vegas and Prime Cuts, the same duo who had bested Craze and A-Trak in 1999 to win the inaugural team title.

Rounding out the winners at the DJ championships

were French DJ Khod and British DJ Skully, who placed first and second in the Battle For Supremacy contest.

Craze becomes the first DJ to win the title three times, surpassing the previous accomplishment set by Germany's DJ David, who won the World DJ Championships in 1990 and 1991.

Despite the record-setting victory, DJ Craze announced from the winner's podium that he would likely be retiring from future DJ battles in order to concentrate on producing material for himself and The Allies.

DJ Craze has just issued a new EP, "Obsessive Compulsive Disorder," through ZooYork Records, while The Allies recently filmed a video for "Anarchist Movement," a track off their new EP, "D-Day."
