DJ Hannen (F.K.A. Craz e D): Dave a.k.a. DJ Hannen (f.k.a. Craz e D) was introduced into the world of music by the age of 6, when his Mother taught him piano. Dave went onto playing trumpet in the school band to playing guitar in a garage band, it was 1989 when Dave was introduced to Dance Music & the art of DJing, when a friend took him to a house party, where the now legendary Chicago DJ, Bad Boy Bill was playing. He was blown away & from there Dave started to play around with mix tapes. Dave’s interest was further sparked & he went on to teach himself how to DJ. Dave worked on his skills & studied fellow DJ’s until he was confident to start playing out. In 1991, he started playing small parties & making his own mix tapes to pass along to friends. Dave caught his break in 1993, when he gained his 1st club residency. Since then, he has never looked back. Dave has gone on to play at raves & events across the U.S. & as well as over seas. Dave has also held a couple of residencies at clubs & has made guest appearances at numerous clubs. In 2000, Dave caught a break of a life time & had the chance to tour with the U.K. pop band BB Mak on their debut U.S. tour. Dave has also appeared on several radio & on-line mix shows across the globe. Dave has also finished as high as in the top 150 on the DJ List out of over 200,000 listed DJ’s & was voted one of Chicago’s top 10 favorite DJ’s in a poll taken at the time on Chicago’s 1 club scene web site, Chicago Fusion. Dave has worked endlessly & has had the chance to perform with many top names in the biz. Dave also, decided to launch his own Management & Promotional company in 1999, Euphoric Groove Productions.
