Looking to add his name to this impressive list is dubstep DJ and producer ECRAZE. The Paris based artist has a new EP out now called “French Hood” from Never Say Die: Black Label, the imprint from SkisM.

The set consists of “Impala”, “Buck Wild” featuring Rico Act, “French Hood”, and “Shotta”. Check out the interview below with ECRAZE about how he first got involved with Never Say Die, collaborations he has planned, and his favorite song of 2018!

Hey ECRAZE, thanks for the time. Your new EP “French Hood” was recently released on Never Say Die: Black Label. For those who are hearing about you for the first time, describe your sound in three words.

Hi! Big up for the interview. I’m Thomas, a producer from Paris, France. I’m 25 and have been making dubstep for 3 years now. I would say that my sound is crazy / complex  and the most unique I can make it.

What was the hardest part about creating the EP?

I feel like when you love making music, you naturally spend many hours in the studio and try to push forward music boundaries in general. Because of this, I see no real ‘hard’ part because you are passionate about what you’re doing. Actually, I like to take all the time needed for the creating process and I enjoy it.

How did you first get in touch with NSD?

I met SkisM in Paris at NSD 2015 x Splash. At the end of the show he gave me his card asking me to send material, which I did. The rest is history!

What was it like working with Rico Act on “Buck Wild”?

What can I say except that this man is a machine! After only 2 days with the demo in his hands, he sent me back the final vocal and it was perfect. A couple edits and the track was done.

Anything else we can expect from you this year?

Many collaborations on the way!! I am thinking about some things with Oddprophet, one more collab with Graphyt and I’m actually in touch with Code: Pandorum to build something big. There are many other things to come but I can’t really talk about it right now. Keep a look out !

Favorite Song of 2018 so far: Hard to pick only one track with the amount of great dubstep releases this year, but I would say “Torque” by Space Laces.

Best track to play at peak time: It used to be “404” by Hekler, but Mastadon sent me the most serious dubstep tune I’ve ever heard and both tracks got the biggest reaction in every country I’ve played.

Vocalist you’d most like to work with: Armanni Reign, I’m really digging his vibe !

Upcoming artist to watch for in 2018: Bvssic. This dude has many things to offer to the dubstep community.
