6/25 Crookers!!!!!

Crookers LIVE @ Effenaar

Alright, I was all set to suggest a quiet night of classical tunes ‘n flutes when I remembered this show, and I could not, in good conscious, not blog about it. The house head and former raver boy in me just would not let it pass. I’m already flashing back to the shiny pants and glowsticks days…

Italian production duo Crookers (named for the way they remix songs all sideways and crooked) have been crafting a kind of jittery, spastic club music for the last 5 years. They’ve got a fresh approach to remixing that still borrows a lot of the PLURry feeling from the old school large scale warehouse parties. A crisp mix of electro, hip hop, Baltimore Club and house, their remixes are a party DJ’s fall back bangers armed with the ability to get any dancefloor jumping-unless of course, you’re no friend of the bleepy, the bloopy or the techy. If that’s the case then you should really stay far away from Vessel in San Francisco tonight. I’m sure you’ll be able to feel the electro love for blocks.

But for the initiated, Crookers remixes of songs like We Are All Prostitutes and Kid Cudi’s Day ‘n Night unleash a bit of bass filled fever in our heads that just wont’ be cured by more cowbell. Unless it’s looped under a vocal track, synthesized and tracked to a 4/4 rhythm. It’s hump day people, the perfect night to get a little Crooked. -kwan Read the rest of this entry »
