(August 20th, 2014) New York, get ready. There's another music festival coming to town. This weekend's featured event is the one and only Bella Terra.
New York has seen some incredible music festivals roll through this summer. The Hudson Project and Mysteryland were both muddy successes, let's see if their little brother can live up to the hype. Bella Terra is featuring artists like DJ Craze, Keys N' Krates, Conspirator, and Araabmuzik.
For our preview, we want to highlight two acts: DJ Craze and Keys N' Krates. Let's start with Craze.
Craze, a Nicaraguan producer, is one of the first pioneers of bass music. By killing the Miami Bass scene in the 90s, while also focusing on hip-hop music, Craze helped pioneer some of the bass-centric music that's currently taking the United States by storm. Like A-Trak, Craze is an extremely technical DJ. In fact, he is the only DJ in history to claim the DMC World DJ Championship three consecutive times.
After achieving these accolades from 1998-2000, Kanye West scooped him up as his personal DJ for his lucrative "Glow in the Dark" tour in 2008. After the tour, he went on to found Slow Roast Records with Kill the Noise. Get a taste for Craze's insane mixing abilities with this video:
So there you have it, our preview of Bella Terra 2014. We can't wait for the festival, and hope to see you there. Cop your passes here.
