7. DJ Craze, Massiv Tour Mixtape:


This one from Miami veteran and multiple DMC world champion DJ Craze came as a little bit of a surprise recently, and a very welcome one at that. Tipped off by an Instagram post fromย Craze Lion, I noticed it was a ragga-influenced mix put together for Caribbean-friendly brandย We Are Massiv and knew it would be the heat. Craze, who has a long history in Jungle/D&B and hip-hop, shows his affection for reggae and dancehall with this mix, combining original samples and reggae selections with the modern “traphall” and 808 bass sounds that the kids can’t get enough of. Craze puts it all together in fine style, mixed in with some flawless cuts and blends. Stream below.
