Acraze on going viral with ‘Do It To It’ and dream collaboration Kanye West
We grab DJ and producer Acraze for a quick one on one chat about dream collabs, style, Netflix’s ‘Squid Games’ and Doritos! The hit maker has already raked up 2.7 million + YouTube views (and counting!) storming the charts with track ‘Do It To It’ and has had huge support from BBC Radio 1.
ACRAZE! How are you?
I’m good, just at home resting after doing so many shows. Haha it can get tiring but I have some down time to work on music and spend time with family.
Q.Describe your sound in three words only
Groovy, sexy, & fun.
Q. You have recently been added to the BBC Radio 1 A List, is still number 2 in the global Shazam Discovery chart with the track ‘Do It To It’ . How does that feel?
It’s amazing that people pull out their phones and Shazam the track after hearing it for the first time. I’m so happy that everyone is getting a good first impression of the record.
Q. At EDC Las Vegas, ZEDD opened his set with a remix of ‘Do It To It’ vs the theme music from Netflix’s smash hit series Squid Games- have you seen Squid Game and do you have a favourite Show on Netflix ATM?
“Squid Games” is one of my favorite shows of all time; I can’t wait for season two.
“Dark” is a German series that I was pretty obsessed with for a while too.
Q. Who did you grow up listening to and what are you listening to right now?
I grew up listening to a lot of early disco like ABBA, Earth Wind & Fire, Bobby Brown, etc. To be honest, I’m always trying to listen to new & fresh stuff that’s rising into the scene. I will always love that underground sound.
Q. If you could work with any other Producer/ Rapper/ Singer on a record who would it be and why?
I really would love to work with Chris Lake (producer), Kanye west (rapper), & RAYE or Dua Lipa (Singer)
