Crookers – this friday @ Theaterfabrik, munich

Okay first off the popular information – This Friday Crookers are playing at Theaterfabrik in munich alongside Birdy Nam Nam, the Acid Kids and myself. That alone should be way enough to set any roof on fire, but i wanna dig a bit deeper in the subject, focus more on the Crookers, who they are, what they have done and all the things they have moved in the past 2 years.


RSVP to the event on facebook.

Musically the first part is gonna include a couple of Crookers Mashups & remixes, the 2nd one – their most prolific classics and the third one is gonna be their latest material.

Well first off they are among the biggest names there are right now(think Justice, Basement Jaxx, Boys Noize, etc). They single handedly put italy back on the map – nobody forgets the boot – but musically it has been asleep for at least 20 years. They put the cool back in the otherwise forbidden word “techno”, mixed it with crunk and let’s say “ghetto” (i know it sounds corny but euroheads know what i’m talking about). The guys are a bunch of hip hop heads that produced the kind of electronic sound that made them become the go-to-guys for rave anthems. Somehow their sound was even appealing to all the big record industry players – that all of a sudden wanted to to be produced by them (Black eyed peas etc). In general they somehow were among the first ons to start that hiphop-rave hybrid thats the new global phenomenon. They became a household name and actually famous via the blog world – among the first ones. next part tomorrow:  Their releases.

15 Pages of crookers on hype machine – that alone says it all! – and over 100.000 fans on facebook.

Kolt 13

A word about Kolt 13 – this guy seems to be one of the up and coming producers/ remixers. All his tunes are in our crates (well laptops), some work better than others and some things have to find its yet definetly best fitting sound, but he after a handful of remixes has already a trademark sound. How many people can claim that? And his take on Empire of the Sun has climbed the hypem charts last week – which it definitely deserved, so that was good to see. Let me show some more support by posting 3 more of his tunes and establish this guy as a name with its rightful place and a constant spot on any music roundup on the webs.

So Shifty

Bild 1

For years there has been nothing – i mean literally no interesting music/ production coming out of Hamburg, germany, which used to be one if not THE music capitol of the country. There are always certain shifts towards places – remember Bristol in the mid nineties, Frankfurt in the late 80ies, early 90ies etc. Anyway its hard to keep up with Berlin these days, with all the concentrated talent there. So Shifty are hailing straight out of Hamburg and these guys are simply doing some fine enjoyable remixes. Especially their Major Lazer/ Nina Skye remix caught my ear. Although i didnt want to post another Major Lazer remix, a least for long now, this one is hard to resist. Sounds like a proper 60ies Ska original. Lovely… as well as the other stuf they sent through. All enjoyable – grab their material and make sure to feed your ipods. They will appreciate it.
