August 10, 2007: Aaron LaCrate and Kraddy
Born and bred in East Baltimore, LaCrate has been dreaming up beats in his basement since the tender age of 10. He grew up to be a famous party DJ, launching an extraordinary career that has garnered worldwide media attention from MTV, The Village Voice, and The New York Times. "I've been in this game for years, it made me an animal," says LaCrate, whose infectious style caters to a wide cross-section of the club culture. Mixing up dance, house, hip-hop, 80s, Motown, Miami bass, and crunk, he conjures up highly addictive melodies that pack dance floors from London to NYChead nodding, bass thumping, and booty clapping are basic components of a Lacrate evening.
Known for creating a menagerie of musical wonder, Kraddy intuitively carves beats and weaves sounds from the dark and ethereal to the wildly frenetic. His mixes include a little dancehall, glitch hop, reggae, and old school breaks that are sure to make you rip it up on the dance floor.
