In 2011, he released his own takes on Waka Flocka Flame's "Hard in Da Paint" and "Snap Back Swag" from AJ Hernz, and suddenly he set the blogosphere ablaze. In addition, Skrillex, Diplo,Excision & Datsik all began playing his remixes in their sets. In February 2012, he embarked on a highly successful tour with 12th Planet and Flinch, and he followed that up with shows alongside Zed's Dead. Currently, he's confirmed on the bill for the 2012 installments of Nocturnal, Electric Daisy Carnival [Las Vegas & New York], Atlantic Impulse, Electric Forrest, Global KC and Denver, and many more. One thing's for sure: there ain't no party like a Crizzly party.
