Craze, the only solo DJ in history to claim the DMC World DJ Championships trophy three times consecutively, will be a part of the diverse hip-hop royalty that will be spinning on deck. A living legend in the world of turntablism, Craze will be bringing a unique blend of rap, dubstep and Miami bass on board. Another surprise announcement comes in the form of Panjabi MC, who made his name with bhangra/hip hop crossover hit ‘Mundian To Bach Ke’. The remix that featured Jay Z caught the attention of an international audience; with Panjabi MC going onto win a MOBO and an MTV Europe Music award.
