Wanna see some death-defying trick motorcycle riding in the snowy streets of France?
Last week OWSLA released the new Birdy Nam Nam EP, Defiant Order, which arrived with a slew of remixes by DJ Craze, Breakbot, UZ, and Block Beattaz. But today we’re about to do you one better with an exclusive video of Craze cutting up the track live.
“The most important thing for me is to give it that human funk,” Craze comments on cutting up a live remix. “Whether you’re playing an instrument live or scratching live or whatever—as long as it’s got that human funk. I wanted to give this mix a little bit of what I can bring to the table, with the scratches and that swing I love having in my music. I focused on the vocals ’cause they sounded organic and added some horns to give it that funk.” Below you can check out both the live mix on video and grab Craze’s remix from the Defiant Order EP. As well, Birdy Nam Nam have just uploaded a brand-new Beatport Mix, which features the likes of Four Tet, Jam City, Para One, Hrdvision, and tons more, so check that out, too.
