Crookers - Withdrawals (Ft. Wills)
“…the closest we’ve heard anyone on the European front come to an unpretentiously accessible club hit in a long time, let alone from the ever unpredictable Crookers.” – Dancing Astronaut
CROOKERS is the musical project of Italian DJ/producer, Francesco ‘Phra’ Barbaglia. Bouncing from R’n’B to Ghetto-House, from Trip-Hop to Minimal Techno and with previous releases on labels such as Southern Fried and Mad Decent, Crookers now follows his ARIA CLUB CHART #1 hit “I Just Can’t Feat. Jeremih” with the storming 'Withdrawals' (featuring WILLS). Released worldwide via Defected (onelove in Australia & New Zealand), ‘Withdrawls’ is an idiosyncratic, bass-heavy house trip through thunderous drums and razor-sharp percussion, tempered by an beautifully restrained vocal performance from WILLS.
Already supported by dance tastemakers including Annie Mac, Monki, Huxley, Carl Craig, Shadow Child, Claptone, Zac Samuel, Groove Armada, Hannah Wants, Low Steppa, Chocolate Puma, Sinden, Hector Romero, Sonny Fodera, Riva Starr, Horse Meat Disco, Purple Disco Machine and More!
“There are very few artists in dance music with the ability to continuously put out quality releases for nearly a decade, and Crookers is one of them.” – NEST HQ
