VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with DJ Cratedigga
One of our contributors, Ben Slowey, is more than on top of the local music scene. In addition to his work for Breaking And Entering, he also hosts the Mr. Nice Guy podcast, an interview-based show that reaches out to Milwaukeeans for conversations about what motivates them. Many of these shows fittingly involve the local music scene, and we’ll be sharing some of them here as well.
This time around, Ben talks to DJ, activist, and local music enthusiast Christiaan Cocroft, who goes by the name Cratedigga. He is new to the art form and hopes to use it to cultivate a feeling of love, belonging, and social change. They discussed how Christiaan’s close relationship with musician friends would make him a fervent supporter of the local scene, love for the classics, starting DJing this past year, his inspiration from social activism of the 60’s and 70’s, and rallying together on intersectionality.
