Crookers are best know for their chart-devouring remix of Kid Cudi’s “Day N Nite” and have spent the past year trying to get out from under their own shadow. Track after track has drifted through my speakers and still nothing to write home about. Until now. “Transilvania” is definitely not their best work but it is the first jam from their upcoming Tons Of Friends LP that has got me pumped for it. Steed Lord joins the epic cast of collaborators, lending a weirdo vocal track that perfectly complements the foreboding beat-fest that is best enjoyed towards the later end of a substance-filled evening. In other news, Miike Snow collaborated on Crookers’ debut and I’ve found the track and included it below. Crookers’ themselves tell the story of the track’s inception but fellow Miike fans will find it a curious read, especially when you consider that Miike Snow’s version includes no credit to Crookers in the liner notes. Regular readers can guess which version I prefer.
