From performing opening slots at local nightclubs to headlining sold-out shows within a year, ACRAZE is anything but ordinary. Born Charlie Duncker in Staten Island, ACRAZE is the artist of the moment in dance music and beyond. Hailed by the scene as a trendsetter with an ever-exciting story of success, ACRAZE is only just beginning his role as dance music’s trailblazer.
At the age of 26, ACRAZE’s breakthrough did not happen overnight; years of grinding the DJ circuit across the country gave him the opportunity to develop his signature sound and collaborate with fellow rising stars. In the midst of his budding music career, ACRAZE forged his path to dance world fame when inspiration struck one morning. After he stumbled upon a video featuring Cherish’s 2006 R&B hit “Do It To It,” ACRAZE swiftly produced a rough house edit of the original tune, and a smash hit was born.
Since “Do It To It” dropped in August 2021 via Thrive Music, the single has racked up over 12 billion global streams and has become a staple in any DJ’s collection — “Do It To It” was even crowned iHeartRadio’s 2021 Dance Song of the Year. Following the explosive success of his new music, ACRAZE began his debut Las Vegas residency in early 2022 at Hakkasan Nightclub. That same year, ACRAZE took the main stage at EDC Las Vegas accompanied by Cherish for a special live performance of “Do It To It.” Now taking his show around the globe on his world tour, ACRAZE represents what it truly means to dominate the scene.
