For the 29th set in our Guest Mix series we bring you the one and only 25Thc.
25ThC aka Criztoz Crizto hails from the Sunshine Coast, UK. He has been DJing and running his own events for over 15 years. He has played at bars, clubs, cafes, art galleries and many festivals including Glastonbury 2019. He has also provided guest mixes for 45 Live and Breakin Bread.
His sets showcase his eclectic music tastes and encompass reggae, funk, hip hop, soul, Latin, jazz, cool covers, world beats, re-edits, mash-ups, dance, drum and bass and more.
He is one half of the Original 45ers spinning just 45s and also a DJ with the Jellyfunk Allstars who won the Shindig Festival DJ competition in 2017.
During lockdown in 2020 Criztoz created 45 Day which celebrates the humble 7” vinyl record. It featured 52 DJs submitting 45 minute 45s mixes, a 2 hour radio show from 45 Live and a live stream from Breakin Bread. From this a twice monthly 45 day radio show was born featuring guest DJs and also a show for Barrelhouse Radio. Plans are already in place for an even bigger and better event this year.
Criztoz also became heavily involved with the Forty Five Kings Collective and is head of their live streams. Together with Mr Lob they ran a 24 hour worldwide live stream in July 2020 featuring 25 DJs spinning just 45s. Following on from this he has run live streams from a number of countries around the world, a 45 Queens event featuring 12 female DJs and the 45 Kids which included his 6 year old daughter ZiZi45.
He is a host of the Saturday morning Coffee and Donuts show, the monthly Reggae Fire show on the Forty Five Kings Twitch channel and also runs the monthly 45 Raiders event.
