Insomniac writes: Staten Island-born Charlie Duncker, better known as Acraze, is skyrocketing in the electronic music world with his energy-infused sound and versatile style.
The DJ/producer and songwriter has recently transitioned from his speaker-rattling Bass sound to more of a genre-defying House approach that will have any dance floor grooving.
His latest label release, “Do It To It,” has been rising to the top as one of the best House tracks of the year with worldwide support of industry titans, DJ Snake, Malaa, Chris Lake, Gordo, and more music… especially when I was first making music, I was making everything.
I was making dubstep records one day or a pop/hip hop record one day, and then I would go to house… I was just fluctuating between all of them. But, during quarantine, I was just in my bedroom, just making bass music and it just didn’t feel right.
When I started making house stuff, I found myself getting out of my chair and dancing in my room alone. I felt like I was just alive during a time that I was alone.”
“I still love the bass stuff, though. I just don’t play it anymore. I’m just trying to move into the house stuff – ’cause I do feel like house is definitely making a comeback.
I feel like it had a little time where it was dead. All the hard bass music was actually thriving at one point before the pandemic. Then, during the pandemic, I saw house was starting to make a comeback. So I was like, ‘Oh, maybe I can do my own twist on it.'”
