Thump mixed by Crookers

Crookers may have started out as a two Italians making banging mid-2000s electro together, but when Bot left the group in 2012, Phra was left carrying the torch (and the group's name). For the last three years, Phra has been churning out fidgety electro-house that makes you wiggle your bones and bug the fuck out in the best way possible. On June 16, he'll release his first album as solo-Crookers, entitled Sixteen Chapel, on his old home Dim Mak.

The musical output of Crookers has always basked in its glorious weirdness, taking sounds ranging from electro to hip-hop and bass, smashing them into each others' grills and creating an entirely new monster. The album promises to be a collaboration-heavy showcasing of the producer's sound, featuring dance heads like TJR and Zombie Nation, and people on the other side of the pool like R&B crooner Jeremih. The latter joined forces with Phra for "I Just Can't," a bouncy bass-meets-bedroom track that works in both dance and hip-hop clubs. The accompanying video is just as strange as it is awesome:
