In the past three years, Crookers has appeared on multiple labels, each indicating something different about the crew's predilections. Releases for Man Recordings and Diplo's Mad Decent were rude bass, drawing on B-more and baile funk's raw edits. Work for Southern Fried and Ministry of Sound fine-tuned the low range of the duo's sound, dropping some demented Jheri curl funk and French-touched disco sheen on top.
From the stomping subs to the quivering rafters, Crookers kick like a mule across all frequencies, and will have hands and asses clapping along with Ross One and Pauly Crush at LIV.
